Pierce Recalling More than 2,700 Fire Trucks

September 29, 2010

WASHINGTON - Pierce Manufacturing is recalling 2,652 fire trucks because of a possible steering control problem, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. 

The fire truck models affected are the MY 1998-2008 Arrow XT, Dash, Enforcer, Impel, Lance and Velocity. These vehicles were all manufactured from May 30, 1998 through Nov. 25, 2008. The steering gear bracket may fracture and break. If this occurs, the steering gear may detach from the vehicle. To resolve the problem, Pierce dealers will install a new steering gear mounting bracket free of charge. 

In a separate action, Pierce is also recalling 55 MY 2010 Saber and Custom Contender fire trucks manufactured from March 25 through June 22 of this year. The battery switch positive electrical post may come in contact with the driver seat base reinforcement. This poses a risk of short circuit and consequent fire. 

Pierce dealers will repair the vehicles free of charge. 

Pierce can be reached at (920) 832-3000.
