Forest River is recalling certain model year 2011-2016 Glaval Titan II Low Floor CNG transit buses. The buses may have been manufactured with frames that can crack.

A cracked frame may reduce the driver's ability to control the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash.

The affected buses were manufactured from December 30, 2014 to March 7, 2016.

The recall is expected to begin on September 19, 2016.

Spartan will notify owners on behalf of Forest River, and Spartan dealers will weld any cracked frame as an interim fix. For the final remedy, the dealers will add reinforcements to both chassis rails, free of charge.

For additional information regarding this recall, owners may contact Spartan customer service at (800) 543-4277, reference number 37-07222016-0231.
