Isuzu Technical Center of America, Inc. (Isuzu) is expected to recall 21,000 commercial trucks starting in April 2017. Some 2015-2017 NPR HD, NPR XD, NQR and NRR trucks may have been manufactured with burrs from the stamping equipment. This affects the frames crossmember transmission support. The burrs could cause the transmission mounting studs to break. If the stud bolts break, the transmission could drop towards the driveshaft and the driver may not be able to shift properly. When Isuzu starts the recall in April, dealers will inspect the trucks and install a metal shim to support the mounting studs free of charge.
