Spartan Motors Chassis is recalling certain model year 2012-2013 Gladiator, Metro Star, Metro Star-X, and Force emergency rescue chassis cabs built between October 1, 2012, through October 31, 2012. The wiper motor shaft and the wiper arm shaft have different sized splines which may cause the windshield wipers to become inoperative.
If the windshield wipers become inoperative, the driver could have reduced visibility, which may increase the risk of a crash.
The remedy for this recall campaign is still under development. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Spartan at 1-800-543-5008.
