Additional information:

Among the 56 recalls the NHTSA has announced this June comes news of the following:

Logo - Blue Bird Body CompanyBlue Bird Body Company (“Blue Bird”) has recalled an estimated 4,218 model year 2015-2020 Vision and All American School Buses equipped with Bendix ADB22X air brakes. The driver side rear brakes in the recalled School Buses may drag.

According to the NHTSA, a dragging brake reduces the ability to stop or slow down a vehicle, which increases the risk of crash. A dragging brake may cause thermal damage to the brake components, which may activate the ABS warning light. The warning light may cause the driver to immediately stop the vehicle and transfer occupants, which increases their risk of injury.

Blue Bird will notify registered owners, and dealers will install a new caliper with an updated clearance adjustment mechanism, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin July 18, 2019. Owners may contact Blue Bird customer service at 1-478-822-2242. Blue Bird’s designation for this recall is R19AA – SB.
