Spartan Motors is issuing a recall for a product line due to a defect in the suspension.

The Charlotte, MI auto manufacturer is recalling certain model year 2015-2016 K2, and K3 vehicles. The recalled units were produced between Nov. 19, 2013 and May 7, 2015.

Reports indicate that power could be lost unexpectedly in the vehicle's air suspension system. A failure of the air suspension system could result in a loss of some vehicle control, increasing the risk of a crash.

Spartan began receiving reports of an issue in May of this year, and determined on July 15 that a safety defect exists in certain vehicles identified in this recall. A little over 100 vehicles are being recalled.

This is the second recall this month for Spartan Motors.

Spartan will notify owners, and dealers will install an independent electrical circuit that will supply power to the control module, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin the end of August 2015. Owners may contact Spartan customer service at (517) 543-6400.
