I've always considered these vans as one of the iconic representations of North America.

Apparently this is a Workhorse W42, comments anyone?

Workhorse Recalls

4 recalls found.
  1. DEFECT #1 -



    Description
    Navistar, inc.  Is recalling certain model year 2012 workhorse custom chassis w42 and w62 vehicles, manufactured from july 13, 2012, through october 12, 2012, and equipped with hydraulic brakes.  In the affected vehicles, the brake fluid level indicator (fli) may not properly detect a low brake fluid level situation and warn the driver.

    Consequence
    Without a warning, the driver may be unaware that the brake fluid level is low.  A low brake fluid level may reduce the available braking force which could lengthen the required stopping distance and increase the risk of a crash.  

    Corrective Action
    Navistar has notified owners, and dealers will replace the fli switch free of charge.  Owners may contact navistar at 1-800-448-7825.  Navistar's recall campaign number is 51302-c.

    Notes
    Owners may also contact the national highway traffic safety administration vehicle safety hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (tty 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
