Issue

On certain buses, the roof header joints may be improperly bonded due to adhesive not being applied in the correct locations. In the event of a rollover crash, the structure of the vehicle could be affected, increasing the risk of injury to occupants. Correction: Daimler Trucks of North America Authorized Service Facilities will inspect the placement of the roof header adhesive and mechanical fasteners will be added to secure the joints as necessary.
