Prevost is recalling certain model year 2011 and 2012 X3-45 Prevost coaches manufactured from March 25, 2011, through March 20, 2012. The left side radius rod support for the front I-beam suspension system may have been made from the wrong materials and thus, may suddenly break.
If the rod breaks while the vehicle is in use, stability and vehicle control may be lost, increasing the risk of a crash.
Prevost will notify owners, and dealers will insepct the vehicles and replace any affected radius rod supports, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided the agency with a remedy schedule. Owners may contact Prevost at 1-418-883-2888.
