Summary: MCI IS RECALLING 350 MODEL YEAR 2008 AND 2009 MOTOR COACHES, MODEL J4500, MANUFACTURED BETWEEN OCTOBER 2007 AND APRIL 2009 AND 2009 MOTOR COACHES, MODELS D4000ISTV, D4500, AND D4505, MANUFACTURED BETWEEN JANUARY AND APRIL 2009. THE STEERING ANGLE SENSOR (SAS) CAN DEVELOP INTERNAL FRICTION BETWEEN THE SENSOR GEARS AND THE SENSOR HOUSING AS A RESULT OF EXTERNAL FORCES EXPERIENCED ON THE VEHICLE INCLUDING VIBRATION. IF DEVELOPED FRICTION IS GREAT ENOUGH, THE DRIVING TAB OF THE SAS CAN SHEER AS THE DRIVER TURNS THE STEERING WHEEL.

Consequence: WITH A BROKEN SAS DRIVING TAB, THE ELECTRONIC STABILITY CONTROL (ESC) WILL NOT FUNCTION PROPERLY, WHICH COULD POSSIBLY RESULT IN A VEHICLE CRASH.

Remedy: MCI WILL NOTIFY OWNERS AND THE VEHICLES WILL BE REPAIRED.

If you've got a lemon MCI coach, get a Burdge attorney. Getting rid of lemon Rv's is what we do. Everyday. Since 1978.

Because life is too short to put up with a bad Rv.
