Gillig LLC "Gillig" is recalling certain 2013-2016 Hybrid and all Electric Low Floor buses with electro-hydraulic power steering assist. The coupler between the high-voltage electric motor and hydraulic steering pump shafts may fail, resulting in a loss of power steering assist.
A loss of power steering assist will cause the need for increased steering effort, increasing the risk of a crash.
Gillig will notify owners, and dealers will replace the steering motor-pump assemblies, free of charge. The recall began on October 24, 2017. Owners may contact Gillig customer service at 1-800-735-1500.
