Prevost Cars, Inc. is issuing a recall for buses due to the discovery of faulty suspensions.

The manufacturer is voluntarily recalling certain model year 2016 X3-45 VIP, H3-45 VIP, and H3-45 coaches. Studs that attach the independent front suspension to the vehicle frame may fail and allow a front wheel to turn unexpectedly.

A wheel that turns unexpectedly may cause a loss of vehicle control and increase the risk of a crash.

Prevost is including seven coaches in this recall.

The manufacturer will notify owners, and dealers will replace the affected studs, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on January 4, 2016.

Owners with questions about the recall can contact Prevost customer service at (866) 870-2046.
