2014-05-13 (Published by NHTSA on 2014-05-13)
Recall Summary: Pierce Manufacturing (Pierce) is recalling certain model year 2013 Arrow XT, Dash CF, Impel, and Velocity vehicles manufactured October 2013 through January 2014, and equipped with IMMI-brand L9 seat belt buckles. When the button is pressed to release the seat belt, the latch plate can become partially engaged with the buckle, making the seat belt difficult to unlatch. Thus, these vehicles fail to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 209, "Seat Belt Assemblies."
Hazard: If the latch plate remains partially engaged after the button is pressed, egress from the vehicle could be hindered which would increase the risk of injury in the event of an emergency.
Remedy: Pierce will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and replace the seat belt buckle, as necessary, free of charge. The recall began on June 26, 2014. Owners may contact Pierce at 1-888-974-3723. Pierce's number for this campaign is 74B246.
Additional Info: Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Recall Summary: Pierce Manufacturing Inc. (Pierce) is recalling one model year 2009 Enforcer emergency vehicle and certain model year 2009-2013 Arrow XT, Saber, Velocity, Impel, Quantum, and Commercial vehicles. The trailer connector circuit was wired such that the stop signal overrides the turn signal and the trailer lights do not indicate a turn when brakes are applied.
Hazard: The absence of trailer turn signals may confuse other drivers, increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy: Pierce will notify owners, and dealers will install a new electrical harness, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Pierce at 1-920-832-3000. Pierce's recall number is 74B244.
Additional Info: Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

2013-09-30 (Published by NHTSA on 2013-10-22)
Recall Summary: Pierce Manufacturing Inc. is recalling certain model year 2012-2013 Arrow XT and Velocity emergency vehicles, manufactured January 1, 2012, through June 14, 2013 and equipped with quarter-turn ball valves installed between the glad hands connectors and the parking brake system. If the ball valves are left in the closed position, air pressure can build up on the parking brake circuit side and prevent the application of the spring park brakes when the parking brake valve is activated in the cab.
Hazard: This may allow the vehicle to unexpectedly roll, increasing the risk of personal injury or a vehicle crash.
Remedy: Pierce will notify owners, and dealers will remove the quarter turn ball valves and connect the glad hand signal hose into the primary air tank, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Pierce at 1-920-832-3000. Pierce's recall number is 74B243.
Additional Info: Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

2013-05-22 (Published by NHTSA on 2013-05-29)
Recall Summary: Pierce Manufacturing Inc. (Pierce) is recalling certain model year 2007-2013 Velocity, Impel, and Dash CF emergency vehicles manufactured June 6, 2007, through May 17, 2013. The springs in the outer door handles are not of sufficient stiffness to prevent inadvertent door opening in certain impacts. Thus, these vehicles fail to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 206, "Door Locks and Door Retention Components."
Hazard: In the event of a crash, the weak springs may allow the door to open and possibly fail to contain emergency personnel or equipment, increasing the risk of injury.
Remedy: Pierce will notify owners, and dealers will replace the door latch spring with a stiffer one, free of charge. Owners may contact Pierce at 1-920-832-3000. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Pierce's recall number is 74B242.
Additional Info: Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
