     NOVA BUS / NOVA LFS 	    	2012

NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID Number: 12V334000 	NHTSA Action Number: N/A
Component: SERVICE BRAKES
Potential Number of Units Affected: 15
Summary:
Nova Bus is recalling certain model year 2012 Nova LFS transit buses equipped with certain Bendix brake valves, treadle assemblies, and/or plunger kits.The brake valve plunger may fracture after brake application, resulting in reduced brake pedal angle and travel. This condition may limit the driver's ability to deliver full pressure from the foot brake valve. There is also the potential that the brake plunger could become lodged and prevent the release of the service brakes.
Consequence:
This condition could reduce braking ability and lead to loss of vehicle control, increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy:
Nova Bus will notify owners and repair the vehicles that contain the brake valves, treadle assemblies, and plunger kits, free of charge. Nova Bus has not provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Nova Bus at 1-800-350-6682 or Bendix at 1-440-329-9386.
Notes:
This is Nova Bus campaign number CR1875A. Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration's Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to HTTP://WWW.SAFERCAR.GOV.
