Safety Recall: Interim Notification

On certain Kenworth K270/K370 chassis equipped with Dana SPL 100 drivelines, the driveline tube seam weld may separate or tear under certain stress loads, resulting in driveline separation and sudden loss of drive power. A sudden loss of drive power may increase the risk of a crash.

 

Situation

3 (3 U.S. and O Canada) Model Year 2023 Kenworth K270/K370 chassis built from 8/29/22 through 10/05/22 equipped with Dana SPL 100 drivelines with suspect driveline serial numbers.

07-21-23: Safety and compliance notified. Investigation opened. Reference Dana recall 23E-052.

07-28-23: Received list of affected driveline serial numbers from Dana, including relation to chassis ID number.

08-14-23: Dana sent the 8D document containing the root cause, and corrective action.

08-28-23: Investigation summarized for Safety Committee review.
