June Recalls

Alfa Leisure is recalling 53 MY 2007 Gold fifth wheel trailers and motor homes equipped with Atwood sealed burner ranges. The range and slide-in burner tubes leading from the gas manifold to the burner heads had a depression or 'kink' in the exterior bend restricting proper airflow and gas mixture. This condition could result in carbon monoxide poisoning. Alfa Leisure is working with Atwood to have the tubes replaced on these ranges. The manufacturer has not yet provided an owner notification schedule for this campaign.

American LaFrance is recalling an undetermined quantity of Eagle and Metropolitan fire trucks. The vehicle cab hydraulic system used to raise and lower the cab for maintenance can fail. If the cab is left in a raised position, it may not maintain its tilted upright position. Also if the equipment shifts inside the cab while the cab is in the raised position, it could cause an impact load on the tilt cylinders causing the cab to come crashing down, increasing the risk of injury. American LaFrance has not yet provided a remedy or owner notification schedule for this campaign.

Blue Bird is recalling 4,530 MY 2007 and 2008 Vision and All American school and transit buses equipped with Bendix SR-7 spring brake modulating valves. The internal rubber check valve may leak causing a delay in the application of the spring brakes to park the vehicle after the operator pulls the dash valve button. The delayed parking brake application can occur without warning, leading to unintended vehicle rollaway. Blue Bird will notify owners and provide a free remedy. The manufacturer has not yet provided the agency with a notification schedule.

Blue Bird is recalling 5,977 MY 2004-2007 Vision school and transit buses equipped with Parker single check valves (SCV) provided by Bendix. The defect exists in the Parker SCV that connects with the supply port of the SR-7 spring brake modulating valve. After prolonged use of the Parker SCV, the valve body retainer may become excessively worn and eventually break apart. Pieces of the Parker SCV can become lodged inside the SR-7 spring brake modulating valve, potentially causing either leakage out of the SR-7 valve or preventing air from properly exhausting from the SR-7 valve. This condition can cause a delay in the application of the spring brakes to park the vehicle after the operator pulls the dash valve button. These conditions can occur without warning, leading to unintended vehicle rollaway, brake drag, or in the case of loss of primary circuit, inability to modulate the spring brakes. Blue Bird will notify owners and provide a free remedy. The manufacturer has not yet provided the agency with a notification schedule.

Country Coach is recalling 458 MY 2005-2007 Allure motor homes for failing to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 108, "Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment." These motor homes were equipped with more than three amber identification lamps located at the top and front of the vehicle. The side marker lights in the combination headlight and tail light assemblies do not meet the minimum photometric value at 45 degrees as specified in the standard. The five identification lights could possibly cause confusion to on-coming motorists who are used to observing three identification lights. The inadequacy of the front and rear side marker lights could affect visibility of the motor home during hours of darkness that could potentially result in a crash. Dealers will remove the two extra identification lamps and install four side marker lights, one at each corner. The recall is expected to begin during July 2007.

Thor is recalling MY 2007 Wave and Summitt fifth wheel and travel trailers equipped with Suburban three burner match light gas ranges. The oven thermostat control valve can allow gas flow to the oven burner when the oven control knob is pushed in and not fully in the correct position to light the pilot. If the oven control knob was depressed for some time before lighting the pilot light, the excess gas in the oven could cause a flash at the opening of the oven, possibly resulting in personal injury. Thor is working with Suburban to replace the oven thermostat control. The manufacturer has not yet provided an owner notification schedule.

Volvo is recalling 38,700 MY 2003-2004 V70 and S60 vehicles. The fuel pressure sensor located on the left end of the fuel rail may, at times, transmit an incorrect signal regarding the fuel pressure to the engine control module. If the signal is outside of the pre-programmed allowable limits, a diagnostic trouble code may be set and the check engine light will come on. The soldered joints on the circuit board of the fuel pressure sensor may crack due to temperature changes and excessive vibrations. Misfire may occur during driving that, in turn, will reduce the engine torque and, in the worst case scenario, the engine may stall without warning. In certain traffic situations this could cause an unsafe situation and possibly a crash. Dealers will replace the fuel pressure sensor. The manufacturer has not yet provided an owner notification schedule for this campaign.

VW is recalling 58,900 MY 2006 Jetta vehicles equipped with 2.5l gasoline engines. These vehicles may have a small plastic tab located on the windshield washer fluid reservoir that may chafe against the underhood fuel supply line. If this happens, the chafing has the potential to cause a fuel leak over time. Fuel leakage in the presence of an ignition source could result in a fire. Dealers will remove the plastic tab from the windshield washer fluid reservoir and will also inspect and, if necessary, replace the underhood fuel supply line. The recall is expected to begin on or about August 13, 2007.

VW is recalling 3,100 MY 2008 Touareg vehicles for failing to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 138, "Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems." The owner's manual is missing the tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) written instructions. This standard specifies performance requirements for these systems to warn drivers of significant under-inflation of tires and the resulting safety problems. Owners will be sent an owner's manual insert containing the required TPMS information. The recall is expected to begin during July 2007.

Wood Manufacturing is recalling 321 MY 2007 Ranger Trail AF4500, AM4500, CF4500, and SF4500 boat trailers for failing to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 110, 'Tire Selection and Rims for Motor Vehicles.' Some 'C' load rated tires were supplied inadvertently instead of 'D' load rated tires. This does not meet the standard requirements. Owners will be asked to inspect the tires to see if the tires are 'D' or 'C' rated tires. If the tires are 'C' load rated, the customer will be directed to contact their Ranger dealer to have the tires changed. The recall is expected to begin during July 2007.

Workhorse is recalling 4,174 MY 2001-2007 P42 and W42 commercial chassis built with gasoline fuel tanks for failing to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 301, "Fuel System Integrity." Fuel spillage during a rollover test exceeded 142g, which does not comply with the standard. Fuel leakage, in the presence of an ignition source, could result in a fire. Vehicles will be fitted with a new wide retaining ring and, additionally, any vehicles built prior to July 1, 2003 will also be fitted with an extra retention clip. The recall is expected to begin on or about July 27, 2007.
