Autocar is recalling 82 model year 2014-2018 Xpeditors manufactured with a single cross-member behind the engine and equipped with a front engine power take off (FEPTO).
The mounting brackets of the first cross member behind the engine may fail prematurely due to strain caused by improper spacing between the cross members, causing the supportive cross member to become loose and detach from the frame rails.
If the cross member fails, the components that it supports may come loose from the vehicle, increasing the risk of crash.
What to do
Autocar will notify owners, and dealers will replace any damaged components as well as install additional support brackets and an additional cross member free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin September 17, 2020.
Owners may contact Autocar's customer service at (888) 218-3611 or (877) 973-3486. Autocar's number for this recall is ACX-2003.
