7. Emergency Recall- Pierce

No doubt that got your attention. While it is a recent recall, it’s not an emergency, per se. It is a recall on emergency vehicles manufactured by Pierce Manufacturing. While not directly affecting the public, the design could impact the safety of its occupants. Affected vehicles are model year 2009-2013 Pierce Enforcer, Impel, Quantum, Velocity, and Arrow XT emergency vehicles manufactured November 11, 2009, to April 23, 2013, and equipped with TAK-4 front independent suspensions. Front lower control arms may fracture resulting in the attached wheel separating. This defect increases the risk of a crash. The recall just occurred in November, but the manufacturer will be notifying owners and dealers to fix the problem.
