Gillig LLC "Gillig" is recalling certain 2012-2018 Gillig Low Floor vehicles. The front and rear turn signals on these vehicles may flash at different rates, potentially confusing other drivers of the vehicle's intention. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard "FMVSS" number 108, "Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment."
The mismatched flashing may confuse other drivers, increasing the risk of a crash.
Gillig will notify the owner of the buses, and dealers will reprogram the turn signals with new software, free of charge. The recall began August 30, 2018. Owners may contact Gillig customer service at 1-510-264-5073 or 1-800-735-1500.
