Motor Coach Industries recalls 1,100 RVs to fix brakes

WASHINGTON — Motor Coach Industries (MCI) is recalling 1,100 2014-2017 J4500 motor coaches equipped with ZF front axles, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported.

In the affected vehicles, the front brake hose routing clamps may have been over-tightened, possibly damaging the brake hose wall reinforcement. If the brake hose wall reinforcement is damaged, the brake hose may leak, NHTSA noted.

If the front brake hoses leak, the distance needed to stop the vehicle may be lengthened, increasing the risk of a crash, NHTSA warned.

Remedy

MCI will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the clamp tightness, replacing any damaged brake hoses, as necessary, free of charge. The recall began June 16. Owners may contact MCI customer service at 800.241.2947. MCI’s number for this recall is SB 454.
