Summary:
      Gillig, LLC "Gillig" is recalling certain model year 2007-2014 Lowfloor transit buses manufactured September 26, 2007, through January 24, 2014. In the affected vehicles, the engine oil sampling hose may leak oil due to being routed too closely to hot engine exhaust components.

Remedy:
      Gillig will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the oil sampling hose.
