Summary

Prevost Car "US" Inc. "Prevost" is recalling certain 2014 and 2018 H3-41, 2013-2024 H3-45, 2012-2024 X3-45, and 2017-2023 X3-45 Commuter vehicles.

Consequence

Beacons that do not provide proper illumination may be less visible to wheelchair lift users, increasing the risk of injury.

Prevost will replace the red beacons, free of charge. Interim letters notifying owners of the safety risk were mailed February 6, 2024. A second notice will be mailed once the remedy is available.
