Three Recalls Announced by Automotive Manufacturer Spartan
Spartan Motors has issued three new recalls due to a variety of safety concerns.
First, the auto manufacturer is recalling certain model year 2008-2010 Gladiator, and MetroStar emergency vehicles because of mirror lenses that may fall off due to heavy vibration. This could dangerously impair the operator's vision, increasing the risk of a crash.
Spartan believes that 322 emergency vehicles are affected by this issue. This is the second recall in two days for Gladiator and MetroStar models.
Next, the company is recalling about 1,200 model year 2004-2008 K2, K3 and MM motorhomes. In the affected vehicles, the engine cooling fan may separate from the fan drive while the fan is spinning. If the engine area is open and the cooling fan is operating and detaches, someone nearby may be injured.
Lastly, Spartan announced a recall for about 440 2007-2008 MM and K2 motorhome chassis. The affected vehicles have tag axles with wheel bearings that may be adjusted too tight, resulting in their overheating during use, and increasing the risk of a wheel end fire.
Spartan will notify owners affected by all three recalls, and dealers will make the necessary fixes, free of charge. The recalls are expected to begin in September 2015.
