Eldorado National-California (ENC) is recalling 16 model year 2016 E-Z Rider II transit buses. The affected vehicles are equipped with front steel rims that may allow the inside sidewall of the front tires to contact the outer end of the front tie-rods due to insufficient clearance.

If the tie-rods contact the front tires, the tires may be damaged and suddenly lose air, resulting in an increased risk of a crash.

The recall process began on August 10, 2016. ENC has notified the owners, and dealers will replace the steel wheels with ones that provide adequate clearance, free of charge.

For further information regarding this recall, consumers may contact ENC customer service at (909) 591-9557.
