Logo - Thor Motor CoachThor Motor Coach (“TMC”), an Elkhart, Indiana establishment has recalled an estimated 566 model year 2020 Daybreak, Four Winds, Delano, Gemini, Quantum, Tiburon, Chateau Citation, Compass, Chateau, Siesta, Freedom Elite, and Synergy motorhomes built on Mercedes-Benz Sprinter chassis [platform 907 (VS30)] equipped with automatic transmissions marketed, sold and delivered in the United States.

Recall Category: Power Train, Equipment – Incorrect Auto-P Information in the Owner’s Manual

NHTSA Safety Notification 20V308000 reports the Owner’s Manual does not correctly specify the certain conditions under which the Automatic Parking Function (“Auto-P”) operates.

According to the NHTSA, if the vehicle operator were to rely on the Auto-P function as described in the Operator’s Manual, the possibility of a vehicle rollaway or unintended vehicle movement cannot be ruled out. If this defect occurs, it could increase the risk of a crash MVA or other impact event with consequential injury and/or life-changing results.

Thor Motor Coach will notify registered owners, and a Mercedes-Benz dealer will supplement the Operator’s Manual with a correct description of the Auto-P function equipped in the vehicle. This recall is expected to begin July 26, 2020. Owners may contact TMC Customer Service toll-free at 1-877-855-2867. TMC’s designation for this recall is RC000190.
