November 5, 2015

Blue Bird Body Company is issuing recalls for buses due to concerns over visibility.

The bus manufacturer is voluntarily recalling 2016-2017 Vision school and transit buses. In the affected vehicles, the windshield wiper motor harness connector may have been installed incorrectly, causing the wiper system to stop without warning.

An inoperative windshield wiper may reduce the driver's visibility during inclement weather, increasing the risk of a crash.

The recall involves 63 school buses and one transit bus.

Blue Bird will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and correct the wiper motor connection, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on November 25, 2015.

Owners with questions about the recall can contact Blue Bird customer service at (478) 822-2242.
