Spartan Motors USA "Spartan" is recalling certain 2012-2019 Fleet Utilimaster Walk In vehicles built on a DTNA chassis. The brake pedal clevis pin clip may rub or bend on the throttle pedal and possibly detach.
If the clip is detaches and clevis pin slides out of position, the brake lights may fail. Loss of brake lights may mislead other drivers if they are unaware the vehicle is stopping or slowing down, which increases the risk of crash. If the pin continues to slide out further, the pedal may detach, increasing the risk of crash.
DTNA will notify Spartan owners, and DTNA dealers will inspect the clevis pin clearance and correct it as necessary, free of charge. The recall began July 22, 2019. Owners may contact DTNA customer service at 1-800-547-0712 or Spartan at 1-800-543-5008. Spartan's number for this recall is 19013.
