Additional information:

Among the 81 recalls the NHTSA has announced this November, comes news of the following:

Gillig LLC (“Gillig”) has recalled an estimated 4,469 model year 2013-2018 Gillig Low Floor Transit Buses equipped with disk brakes. In the recalled Buses, the spring cage bolts on the air brakes may not be sufficiently tightened, reducing the effectiveness of the parking brake.

According to the NHTSA, loose cage bolts may result in the Bus rolling away when in the PARK position or a loss of braking ability if the service brake air pressure is lost while moving. Either condition may increase the risk of a crash.

Gillig will notify registered owners, and dealers will tighten the spring cage bolts, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin November 30, 2018. Owners may contact Gillig customer service at 1-510-264-5073 or 1-800-735-1500 during nirmal business hours.
