Hyundai Translead Recalling Dry Van Trailers

October 27, 2010

WASHINGTON - Hyundai Translead is recalling 203 MY 2011 53-foot Composite dry van trailers that are equipped with Arvin Meritor suspension systems. 

The systems in question may have missing welds at the interface of the lower seat bracket and axle beam, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said. As a result, the missing welds could allow the axle to roll out of position and potentially impact the handling of the trailer. A driver could possibly lose control of the vehicle. 

Hyundai Translead is a manufacturer of dry and refrigerated van trailers, domestic containers, container chassis and converter dollies for the North American transportation industry. The company is working with Arvin Meritor to identify owners with the suspension systems that are at risk. These trailers will be repaired free of charge. 

Owners can reach Hyundai Translead at (619) 680-3144. Arvin Meritor can be reached at (248) 435-0896.
