Daimler Trucks Issues School Bus Recalls
WASHINGTON, D.C. --- Daimler Trucks is issuing a series of Thomas Built school bus recalls.
One such recall affects certain model year 2008 through 2011 Thomas Built Saf-T-Liner C2 school buses and FCCC B2 chassis manufactured from June 1, 2007 through Sept. 28, 2009. Fasteners used to connect the rear suspension spring to the suspension hanger bracket may not have been torqued to specification, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Under-torqued fasteners may become loose and potentially fall out. Loose or missing fasteners may allow the rear suspension to become misaligned, increasing the risk of a crash.
Dealers will inspect and adjust the fasteners as required. Damaged fasteners will be replaced. Repairs will be made free of charge.
This safety recall is expected to begin in February. Owners may contact Daimler Trucks' toll-free at (800) 547-0712. The safety recall campaign number is FL-567.
