Autocar Recalls ACX Vehicles That Could Catch Fire

Autocar is recalling certain model year 2011-2013 ACX vehicles. These vehicles are equipped with Meritor axle assemblies that were built with disc brakes using MGM J24 series air brake chambers.

In the affected axles, the brake chambers may leak pressure allowing the parking brake to drag when it is supposed to be released. Brake dragging could lead to overheated brake components.

Overheated brake components could result in a fire.

The ACX vehicles included in this recall were manufactured from January 24, 2011 through December 4, 2012.

The owners of all recalled ACX vehicles will be notified directly by Autocar. The actuators in the affected vehicles will be replaced, as needed, free of charge.
