Daimler is recalling its Freightliner Cascadia in Australia

Daimler Truck and Bus Australia is issuing a recall on its Freightliner Cascadia product.

After a Cascadia recall in February where 643 units were recalled over an issue involving the wiring harness of the 'fast flash bulb out' warning indicator and a clutch related recall in September 2021 of 178 units, sixteen units of all model variants manufactured between 2018-2021, are being recalled due to a defect.

Daimler says the battery cable connection may break, resulting in the vehicle potentially losing electrical power and shutting down the engine without warning.

This could put drivers at risk of an accident, especially if all electrical power is lost and the engine shuts down quickly without giving drivers the time to pull over.

Owners of the 16 Freightliner Cascadia models can contact authorised Daimler commercial vehicle dealerships as soon as possible to have the necessary worked carried out free of charge.
