WASHINGTON, D.C. --- Nissan Diesel America is recalling 73 MY 2007-2008 UD3300 vehicles that were modified by installing dual steering controls for use as street sweepers.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, these vehicles fail to comply with federal safety standards for air brake systems. The brake recertification was not performed on these vehicles during modification of the dual steering system. If the vehicles have incorrect air brake apply/release timing, braking performance could be compromised and increase the risk of a crash.

Dealers will inspect and replace the necessary components free of charge. Vehicle owners can reach Nissan Diesel at (972) 756-5500.

The recall is expected to get underway in mid-February.
