Axle shafts that are not properly heat treated may break and potentially disable the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash.
Pierce will notify owners, and dealers will replace the rear steer axle shafts, free of charge. An interim notice was mailed on July 24, 2017. A second notice will be mailed when parts become available. Owners may contact Pierce customer service at 1-888-974-3723.
