Autocar, LLC along the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has issued a recall for all units of the 2011 through 2013 ACX models of trucks due to a potential fire hazard.

The federal agency issued a statement revealing that the air brake chambers in these vehicles, which are assembled with the Meritor axle assemblies, could drag as a result of a pressure leakage. Drivers could be involved in an incident in case the brakes drag for too long, increasing the overheating of the component and causing a fire.

To prevent any incidents, the company will be having al affected brake chambers repaired or replaced for free. You can read more on this recall by following this link.
