Autocar Industries, LLC "Autocar" is recalling certain model year 2012-2014 Xpert vehicles manufactured July 11, 2011, through March 5, 2014. The bolts securing the brake valve to the cab may be below the required torque which could cause a failure in the connection of the airlines and the brake valve. Thus, the vehicles do not conform to Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard "FMVSS" number 121, "Air Brake Systems."
Low bolt torque may result in a loss of brake line air pressure, increasing the risk of a crash.
Autocar will notify owners, and dealers will correct the brake valve mounting, free of charge. The recall began in June 2014. Owners may contact Autocar's customer service at 1-765-489-5499. Autocar's number for this recall is M-1406.
