Nova Bus has announced a recall for vehicles with potentially compromised visibility.

The manufacturer is recalling certain model year 2014-2016 LFS and LFS Artic buses. On the affected vehicles, the pin on the wiper idler arm may strip, causing the windshield wipers to become inoperative.

If the windshield wipers become inoperative, visibility will be decreased, increasing the risk of a crash.

About 860 buses are included in this action.

Nova will notify owners, and dealers will replace the wiper idler arm, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on April 20, 2016.

Owners may contact Nova customer service at 1-800-350-6682.
