Forest River, Inc. "Forest River" is recalling certain 2018 Glaval Bus Concorde II and Starcraft Bus XLT transit buses. The gear shift cable clip may not be properly seated, allowing the transmission to be in a different gear than indicated by the gear shift lever position.
If the gear shift cable clip becomes unseated or dislodged, the gear shift lever position may indicate that the transmission is in 'Park' when it may be in a different gear. Additionally, despite selecting 'Park', if the parking brake is not applied before the vehicle is exited, the vehicle may roll. Either scenario increases the risk of a crash.
Forest River has notified owners, and Ford dealers will inspect the shift cable locking clip and properly seat it, if necessary, free of charge. The recall began June 4, 2018. Owners may contact Glaval customer service at 1-800-445-2825, Starcraft customer service at 1-800-348-7440, or Ford customer service at 1-866-906-9811. Forest River's number for this recall is 3505-0713.
