Conventional and All American school buses of the 2014 model year are being recalled by the Blue Bird Corporation because of a possible problem with the suspension on the vehicles. 1,747 buses that have a ZY on the front suspensions’ bolt heads are potentially impacted by a manufacturing issue that could cause a breakage of the front suspension bolts. This would make the bus harder to steer, and the increased workload then placed upon the driver could make the likelihood of a crash grow. The recall should start some time this month, so owners can expect to hear from Blue Bird soon. A free inspection and repairs (if necessary) will be carried out by dealers.
