These vehicles are equipped with MAN V8-65L axle beams that may have cracks on the upper and/or lower surface, which, over time can cause the axle beam to fail.
Failure of the front axle beam can cause a loss of vehicle control, increasing the risk of a crash.
New Flyer will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the axle beams and determine a repair, as necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin March 8, 2017. Owners may contact New Flyer customer service at 1-204-224-6706. New Flyer’s number for this recall is R17-002.
