Spartan Motors USA "Spartan" is recalling certain model year 2011-2017 Transit Bus Chassis Cabs manufactured February 17, 2011, to October 19, 2016. The affected vehicles have an exhaust tube that may disconnect at a joint near the underside of the floor, potentially exposing the floor to high temperatures for prolonged time periods.
If the floor is exposed to the heat of exhaust gases for long periods, it can increase the risk of a fire.
Spartan will notify owners, and dealers will remove the current securing clamp and install a sleeve with different clamps, free of charge. The recall began on November 29, 2016. Owners may contact Spartan customer service at 1-800-543-4277. Spartan's number for this recall is 16026.
