Summary:
      Prevost is recalling certain model year 2010-2013 H3 and X3 coaches and MTH XLII-45E coach shells manufactured between June 29, 2009, up to June 4, 2012, and equipped with an Automatic Fire Detection and Suppression System "AFSS". There is the possibility that the AFSS could unintentionally activate due to wear of the linear thermal detection cable.
Consequence:
      An activation of the AFSS causes the vehicle to come to an unplanned stop. This could increase the risk of a vehicle crash or personal injury.
Remedy:
      Prevost will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and repair the linear thermal detector by adding a protective sheath, free of charge. The recall began in March 2013. Owners may contact Prevost at 1-418-883-2888 x 6558.
