Among the twenty four (24) recalls the NHTSA announced this month comes news of the following:

Logo - Motor Coach Industries ("MCI"),Motor Coach Industries (“MCI”), a Des Plaines, Illinois establishment and a subsidiary of NFI Group of Winnipeg, Manitoba, has recalled an estimated 276 model year 2018-2020 D4505 and D4500 Coaches equipped with an optional steerable tag axle marketed, sold and delivered in the United States.

NHTSA Safety Notification 19V924000 reports that the tag axle mounting block clamps that retain the tie rod to obtain the forward steer orientation may slip in the recalled Coaches. This may result in the tag axle being out of alignment.

According to the NHTSA, if the tag axle becomes misaligned with the front of the vehicle, the rear of the vehicle may strike other vehicles or pedestrians, increasing the risk of a crash or injury.

MCI will notify registered owners, and dealers will replace the block clamps and retorque the fasteners, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin February 3, 2020. Owners may contact MCI Customer Service toll-free at 1-800-241-2947 during normal business hours, Eastern Standard Time Monday to Friday. No manufacturer’s designation was listed for this recall at press time.
