The original Call to action was a huge success!
It took a lot longer than I would have hoped, but today the recall campaign has become an official recall.
This entire experience should serve as a template on how the RV Community can work together to bring change. We have a huge voice, that once organized in a consistent manner, can bring major change to the industry.

One thought on “2019 Freightliner Digital Dash Recall – Its Official”
Another good day for us. The NHTSA has issued a consent order to Freightliner for their slow response to recalls, and the ongoing delays between notices and actually fixing. This carries a $30M fine and mandates that corrective action take place quickly.
This is similar to the fine issued to Hyundai/Kia earlier this year.
Maybe we will get our dash fixed within the next 12 months.
