Summary: New Flyer is recalling certain model year 2010-2012 transit buses, models C35LFR, C40LF, C40LFR, D35LFR, D40LFR, D60LFR, DE35LFR, DE40LFR, DE60LFR, XD35, XD40, XDE35, XDE40, XN40, and XN60. Air pressure may leak from the parking brake chambers causing the parking brakes to drag while the vehicle is driven.
Consequence: If the brakes drag, they may overheat, possibly resulting in a fire.
Remedy: New Flyer will notify the owners and the affected brake chambers will be replaced, free of charge. The recall will begin mid-November 2012. Owners may contact New Flyer at 1-204-224-6706 for more information.
