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

  • Blue Bird Body Company is recalling certain 2022 Vision school buses equipped with Ford 7.3-liter engines. The retaining clamp used to secure the hydraulic brake line near the engine may not have been installed, which could cause the brake line to rub which could cause a brake fluid leak and result in a loss of brake function. Loss of braking ability increases the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 135 vehicles are affected by the recall.
  • Daimler Trucks North America is recalling certain 2015-2018 Thomas Built Minotour school buses. The under-body shut-off solenoid connector that connects to the CNG fuel tank may corrode, which could result in an electrical short. A short at the connector may cause a flame or overheating, increasing the risk of a fire. NHTSA says potentially 87 vehicles are affected by the recall.
  • Motor Coach Industries is recalling certain 2018 D4000, 2018-2020 D4005, D4000ISTV, 2017-2020 D4500, D4505, 2018-2021 J3500, 2017-2021 J4500, 2020 D4520, and 2018-2021 D45CRTLE motorcoaches. The Main Distribution Panel (MDP) located within the battery compartment contains a circuit board that may fail. MDP circuit board failure can result in a fire or an unexpected vehicle shutdown, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 2,455 vehicles are affected by the recall.
  • Shyft Group is recalling certain 2020-2022 Spartan RV Chassis K1 and K2 recreational vehicles. The rear suspension mounting fasteners that attach the rear-drive axle to the rear suspension may not have been tightened properly, which could allow the fasteners to loosen or break. Loose or broken suspension fasteners can allow the rear-drive axle to shift out of place, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 660 vehicles are affected by the recall.
  • Shyft Group is recalling certain 2020-2022 Spartan RV Chassis K3 and K4 recreational vehicles. A machining defect may cause pressure to build in the power steering pump and break the shaft seal, resulting in a loss of power steering assist. A loss of power steering assist increases the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 91 vehicles are affected by the recall.
