New Flyer Recalls Transit Buses

March 17, 2010

WASHINGTON - New Flyer Industries Ltd. is recalling more than 1,800 MY 2004-2009 transit buses. 

The recalled models have an inspection panel located above the drive shaft in the passenger compartment flooring for easy inspection and removal of the drive shaft. This panel may not be strong enough to prevent foreign matter from entering the passenger compartment in the event of a drive shaft failure, the National Highway Safety Administration said. Failure of the drive shaft access panel to maintain passenger compartment integrity poses a safety risk. 

Dealers will remedy the problem by incorporating an energy-absorbing honeycomb material to the underside of the access panel. There will be no charge for this service. The recall is expected to begin this month. 

Vehicle owners can reach New Flyer at (204) 934-4874.
