Paccar is recalling 5,142 2009-2015 model-year Peterbilt 320, 365, 367, 388 and 389 trucks because they’re at risk for steering problems, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The recall covers trucks manufactured from July 21, 2008, to Feb. 28, 2014. The front axle tie rod end clamp bolts in these vehicles may be improperly torqued, NHTSA said. As a result, these bolts may loosen and separate, triggering a loss of steering control and increasing the risk of a crash. 

To resolve the problem, dealers will replace the front axle tie rod assembly on any these vehicles that still has the original factory-installed assembly. There will be no charge for this service.

Truck owners can reach Peterbilt customer service at (940) 591-4220. Paccar's number for this recall is 215-C.
