As exciting as the release of the new year’s line of Freightliner Cascadias equipped with Cummins ISX12 and ISX15 engines was, the company has recalled a select number from the initial release. As part of their dedication to rigorous quality standards, Cummins acted quickly when it was discovered that some of the new engine control modules had a potential short.
This short would cause the engine to stall unexpectedly during operation. While not as scary as a brake malfunction in a pivotal moment, it’s worth the quick attention. Cummins says it has only affected a comparatively small number of trucks (268 nationwide), but that all Cummins dealerships will provide a calibration to correct the issue free of charge to any Cascadia manufactured in March 14, 2016 through May 18, 2016. It’s a quick fix that allows fleet drivers to be on the safe side and enjoy an otherwise great launch of an innovative engine.
