*** IMPORTANT SAFETY RECALL ***
NHTSA Recall No. 21E-009

 

February 5, 2021

 

Dear Cummins OEM Customer:

We are writing to inform you that Cummins Inc. has determined that a safety-related defect exists in certain Xl5 engines that were manufactured between October 27, 2020 and January 11, 2021. Cummins has initiated a recall of the subject engines. Our records indicate that some of these engines have been shipped to you.

 

A copy of Cummins’ initial Part 573 Defect Notification report is enclosed. This notification was submitted to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) on February 4, 2021. As more fully described in the Defect Notification, the engine flywheel may be susceptible to detaching from the crankshaft, leading to loss of motive power, which may increase the risk of a crash. Additionally, driveline pieces may be ejected from the engine compartment, which may increase the risk of personal injury.

 

Enclosed is a list of Engine Serial Numbers for affected engines that our records indicate were shipped to your plants. For engines installed in vehicles that have left your control, we encourage you to make a safety defect determination in accordance with 49 USC 30118 et seq. and, as appropriate, to submit a Defect Notification to NHTSA in accordance with 49 CFR Part 573. Cummins will conduct the recall, including notifying owners pursuant to 49 CFR Part 577, performing the remedy, and submitting quarterly status reports to NHTSA. Cummins is requesting that you provide the associated vehicle model identification, VINs  and owner contact information to facilitate owner notification. Please work with your Cummins account team leader to ensure that the requested information is provided to Cummins as soon as possible.

 

For engines/vehicles that are still in your inventory, please contact the Customer Quality Assurance representative at the Jamestown Engine Plant to arrange for repairs, as necessary. Please note that Federal law prohibits delivery of these engines, or vehicles equipped with these engines, under a sale or lease until this condition has been remedied.

 

Cummins will conduct a safety campaign to properly torque the subject capscrews and inspect for possible damage and, if necessary, repair the damage.

 

Cummins apologizes for this inconvenience, but we are initiating this action in the interest of our customers’ safety and satisfaction with our products. Thank you for your assistance.

 

Please confirm receipt of this communication.
