An emergency vehicle manufacturer is issuing a recall due to a crash risk.
Pierce Manufacturing is recalling certain model year 2016 Arrow-XT, Dash, Enforcer, Impel, Quantum, Saber, and Velocity fire and emergency vehicles. The fastener cap over the bearing on the universal joint of the drive shaft may have been improperly tightened.
If the cap was not properly tightened, the cap may detach from the vehicle and become a road hazard. Additionally, the universal joint may separate and the vehicle may not be able to be driven, increasing the risk of a crash.
Pierce is including about 240 vehicles in its recall.
