Work dictated by a recall is generally completed at no charge to the vehicle owner, regardless of whether you are the first owner or a subsequent owner. Please contact your service facilities for additional details and to confirm that this recall is relevant to your particular vehicle.

Defect Description

Prevost Cars, Inc.(Prevost) is recalling certain model year 2009-2011 XL2, XL2 Shells, X3 Shell Converted Coaches, and X3 motorcoaches manufactured January 1, 2009, to December 31, 2011, and equipped with an automatic fire suppression system (AFSS) pressure tank in the engine compartment. The tank's pressure relief valve may not withstand the temperatures in the engine compartment, resulting in the venting of the extinguishing agent.

Defect Consequence

Defect Corrective Action

Prevost will notify owners, and dealers will relocate the tank, free of charge. Owners were mailed interim notices on February 2, 2015. A second notice for owners to obtain the remedy was mailed on May 21, 2015. Owners may contact Prevost customer service at 1-877-773-8678. Prevost's number for this recall is SR15-01.

Defect Description

Defect Corrective Action

Prevost will notify owners, and dealers will correct the fuel tank cradle mounting, free of charge. The recall began on December 4, 2017. Owners may contact Prevost customer service at 1-866-870-2046. Prevost's number for this recall is SR17-28.
