Rosenbauer Motors has announced an emergency vehicle recall due to doubts over braking capability.

The manufacturer is recalling certain 2012-2015 Commander vehicles. The brake pedal piston on the affected vehicles may corrode.

If the piston corrodes, the brakes may stick or be difficult to activate. The brakes could also drag and overheat. Either scenario can increase the risk of a crash.

Nearly 400 vehicles are impacted by this defect.

Rosenbauer will notify owners of the recalled vehicles, and dealers will install a solid spacer plate, pedal base, piston and piston seal, sealing this assembly to prevent contamination, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in April 2016.

Owners with questions about this recall can contact Rosenbauer customer service at (651) 462-1000.
