Safety Recalls

The following safety recalls were issued Monday by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA):

  • Blue Bird Body Company is recalling certain 2020-2022 Vision and All American school buses. A retainer was not properly seated in the SC-3 single check valve and may not provide source air isolation when pressure is applied. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 121, "Air Brake System." Unintended spring brake application may occur, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 1,634 vehicles are affected by this recall.
  • Blue Bird Body Company is recalling certain 2022-2022 Vision and All American transit buses. A retainer was not properly seated in the SC-3 single check valve and may not provide source air isolation when pressure is applied. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of FMVSS number 121, "Air Brake System." Unintended spring brake application may occur, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 96 vehicles are affected by this recall.
  • Blue Bird Body Company is recalling certain 2018-2021 Vision and All American school buses. The drivetrain may experience an electromagnetic noise on the Control Area Network (CAN) bus, which may cause a loss of electrical power to the power steering pump. A loss of assisted power steering increases the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 302 vehicles are affected by this recall.
  • Mack Trucks is recalling certain 2019-2020 LR vehicles. The steering transfer case may have an insufficient amount of oil. The internal bearings may fail without sufficient lubrication, causing steering lock-up and increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 232 vehicles are affected by this recall.
  • Mitsubishi Fuso Truck of America is recalling certain 2019-2021 Fuso FEC7T vehicles. The rear leaf spring may break. A broken rear spring leaf may become a road hazard, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 335 vehicles are affected by this recall.
  • Rosenbauer America is recalling certain 2016-2020 Commercial F-550, 2019 Commercial 7500, 2015 Commercial 7400, 2018 Commercial 7400, 2019 Commercial HV613, 2018 Commander, 2017 Warrior, 2019 Warrior, 2016-2020 Commercial M2 106, 2017 Commercial M2 112, and 2021 Commercial 348 vehicles. The rear lights may be too bright. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of FMVSS number 108, "Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment." The excessive brightness may reduce the vision of other drivers, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 32 vehicles are affected by this recall.
