Summary: MCI IS RECALLING 29 MODEL YEAR 2009 D4505 MOTOR COACHES MANUFACTURED BETWEEN FEBRUARY AND APRIL 2009, EQUIPPED WITH KONI SHOCK ABSORBERS.

Consequence: THIS FAILURE COULD RESULT IN SEPARATION OF THE SHOCK ABSORBER FROM ITS MOUNTING, CAUSING INTERFERENCE BETWEEN THE UPPER PORTION OF THE SUSPENSION AND THE DRIVESHAFT, POSSIBLY RESULTING IN A VEHICLE CRASH.

Remedy: MCI WILL NOTIFY OWNERS AND WILL REPAIR THE COACHES.
