NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID Number: 11V564000 N/A NHTSA Action Number: N/A

Component: ELECTRONIC STABILITY CONTROL

Potential Number of Units Affected: 220

Summary: E-ONE IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2008 THROUGH 2011 CYCLONE II, TYPHOON, AND QUEST VEHICLES MANUFACTURED FROM MAY 1, 2008, THROUGH NOVEMBER 28, 2011, AND EQUIPPED WITH MERITOR WABCO ELECTRONIC STABILITY CONTROL (ESC) MODULES. UNDER CERTAIN ROAD AND DRIVING CONDITIONS, VEHICLE BODY ROLL AND ROAD INCLINATION CHARACTERISTICS MAY ADVERSELY AFFECT THE SLIP ANGLE CALCULATION OF THE ELECTRONIC STABILITY CONTROL (ESC) SYSTEM. THIS MIGHT CAUSE THE ESC TO PERCEIVE AN OVER STEERING SITUATION AND THEREFORE APPLY THE OUTER WHEEL BRAKE ON THE FRONT AXLE UNTIL THE VEHICLE IS PERCEIVED TO BE STABLE.

Consequence: IF THE DRIVER IS SLOW TO REACT DURING THIS ESC INTERVENTION, THE VEHICLE MAY DEVIATE FROM THE INTENDED LINE OF TRAVEL, INCREASING THE RISK OF A CRASH.

Remedy: E-ONE WILL NOTIFY OWNERS AND IS WORKING WITH MERITOR WABCO TO REPLACE THE CONTROL MODULE FREE OF CHARGE. THE SAFETY RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN ON OR ABOUT DECEMBER 18, 2011. OWNERS MAY CONTACT E-ONE CUSTOMER SERVICE AT 1-800-627-5050 OR MERITOR ON TRACK CUSTOMER SERVICE AT 1-866-668-7221.
