Summary:
      Mack Trucks Inc. "Mack" is recalling certain model year 2010-2015 CXU trucks manufactured November 20, 2009, through January 27, 2014, and equipped with dual vertical exhaust pipes. The white conspicuity reflectors on the rear of the cab could be blocked by the exhaust pipes. As such, these vehicles do not conform to Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard "FMVSS" number 108, "Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment."
Consequence:
      A blocked reflector makes the truck-tractor less visible when operating the vehicle without a trailer in the dark, increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy:
      Mack will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the trucks and if the reflectors are blocked, they will add two vertical white reflectors to the rear glass , free of charge. The recall began on May 30, 2014. Owners may contact Mack Customer Service at 1-336-393-2000. Mack's number for this recall is SC0378.
