Potential Number of Units Affected: 87
Prevost is recalling certain model year 2011-2012 X3-45 coach buses manufactured June 3, 2010, through August 25, 2011 and equipped with an Automatic Fire Detection and Suppression System (AFSS). As built, the affected vehicles have the AFSS storage tank in the engine compartment. High temperatures in the engine compartment area may cause the pressure relief valve to release the contents of the AFSS storage tank.
If the event of a fire, the AFSS may not operate as designed, increasing the risk of injury to the coach occupants.
Prevost will notify owners, and dealers will relocate the extinguisher storage tank, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in late December 2012. Owners may contact Prevost at 1-418-883-2888 x 6558.
