Summary: Navistar is recalling certain model year 2013 International brand LoneStar, ProStar, and WorkStar commercial trucks, manufactured from April 22, 2012, through May 28, 2012, and equipped with steering wheel feature codes 05CAW, 05CAX, 05CAZ, 05CBA, or 05WBD. The steering wheel may not have been completely welded to its mounting hub.
