Owners of 2011-2012 Kenworth T440 tractors are urged to have their tractor inspected. Paccar is recalling certain models of the tractors because they do not comply with federal standards. An important and required air valve may not have been installed in the vehicle. The omission of this valve may lead to a delayed release of the brake, which significantly increases the risk of a truck accident.
Kenworth dealers are installing the valve free of charge. Owners are advised to contact Paccar at 1.425.468.7400.
