Prevost X3-45 Recall - Crash Danger
Summary:
 Prevost is recalling certain model year 2013 X3-45 and MTH XLII-45E vehicles, all equipped with Volvo D13 engines and an automatic fire detection and suppression system (AFSS). The AFSS linear thermal detector wire may come in contact with or chafe against its supporting tie cables.   

Consequence:
 If the detector wire chafes it may cause the AFSS to activate with no fire present and, as a result, the stop engine feature will be activated, bringing the vehicle to an unplanned stop and increasing the risk of a crash.
