Among the sixty six (66) recalls the NHTSA announced this past month came news of the following:

Logo - Motor Coach IndustriesMotor Coach Industries (“MCI”), a Des Plaines, Illinois establishment and a subsidiary of New Flyer, part of the NFI Group, of Winnipeg, Manitoba, has recalled an estimated 2,272 model year 2014-2019 J4500 and 2018-2019 J3500 Motor Coaches marketed, sold and delivered in the United States.

Recall Category: Service Brakes, Air – Front Brake Hose Failure/FMVSS 121

NHTSA Safety Notification 20V233000 reports the brake hoses may crack or otherwise fail resulting in an air leak. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 121, “Air Brake Systems.”

According to the NHTSA, a leaking brake hose could cause a delay in the actuation time of the front brake, which would increase vehicle’s stopping distance and increase the risk of a crash.

MCI will notify registered owners to inspect the brake hoses and replace any hoses that are leaking or otherwise damaged. MCI will reimburse owners for the cost of the inspection, and will provide replacement parts as necessary, free of charge.

The recall is expected to begin May 15, 2020. Owners may contact MCI Customer Service toll-free at 1-800-241-2947 during normal business hours, Monday to Friday, Eastern Standard Time (“EST”).
