Motor Coach Industries (MCI) is recalling certain model year 2012-2013 D4000, D4000ISTV, D4005, D4500, and D4505 motor coaches equipped with a Cummins ISX EPA 2010 engine.

In the recalled buses, the bellows pipe in the exhaust system may have been incorrectly assembled, which could result in a failure of the pipe during operation.

During a regeneration process to clean exhaust emissions, if the bellows pipe has failed, the hot exhaust gases may not be contained, resulting in a fire.

The motor coach buses included in this recall were manufactured from May 2012 through December 2012.

MCI will notify the owners of all affected buses and dealers will inspect and replace the bellows pipes, as necessary, free of charge.

For more information on this recall, customers may contact MCI at 847-285-2000.
