Issue

On certain buses, the sidewalls of the driveshaft's slip yoke were modified and may fracture and fatigue because they are too thin. This could result in failure of the driveshaft, which would cause loss of motive power while the vehicle is in motion, and increase the risk of a crash causing injury and/or damage to property. Correction: Owners will be provided instructions to inspect and replace the modified slip yokes.
