Daimler Trucks North America is recalling certain Western Star trucks for a window issue, according to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration documents.

More specifically, Daimler is recalling nearly 3,000 Western Star 4900 and 5700 trucks model years 2016 through 2020.

According to NHTSA, the recall affects trucks equipped with sleeper cab vent windows.
