Potential Number of Units Affected: 15
Summary:
Prevost is recalling certain model year 2013 X3-45 and MTH XLII-45E vehicles, all equipped with Volvo D13 engines and an automatic fire detection and suppression system (AFSS). The AFSS linear thermal detector wire may come in contact with or chafe against its supporting tie cables.
Consequence:
If the detector wire chafes it may cause the AFSS to activate with no fire present and, as a result, the stop engine feature will be activated, bringing the vehicle to an unplanned stop and increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy:
Prevost will notify owners, and dealers will add a protection cloth to the linear thermal detector wire at the location of tie cable, free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin during September 2012. Owners may contact Prevost Car Inc., service department toll-free at 1-866-870-2046 or 1-418-831-2046.
Notes:
The Prevost recall campaign number is SR12-29. Customers may contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY: 1-800-424-9153); or go to http://www.safercar.gov.
