NHTSA Campaign Number: 21V562

Manufacturer Rosenbauer America

Components EQUIPMENT

Potential Number of Units Affected 360

 

Summary

Rosenbauer America (Rosenbauer) is recalling certain 2012-2016 Commander and Warrior vehicles. The vehicle weight and tire pressure information may be incorrect on the certification label. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 567, “Certification.”

 

Remedy

The remedy is currently under development. Interim owner notification letters were mailed on September 30, 2021. Owners may contact Rosenbauer customer service at 1-651-462-1000.

 

Notes

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.nhtsa.gov.

 


Dear Owner of a Rosenbauer Fire Apparatus:

 

This interim notice is sent to you in accordance with the requirements of the National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act. This is to inform you that your vehicle may have a defect due to a potential of having the wrong tire inflation, which could result in an underinflated tire that can cause a crash. Please take

note that this is an interim notification as we gather more information.

 

Federal law requires the Recall Remedy completed on this unit prior to customer delivery.

 

What is the issue?: Rosenbauer recently discovered we have a compliance issue where there is a discrepancy of information on the incomplete manufacturer certification label and the final stage manufacturer certification label located on the B pillar of our Rosenbauer fire trucks. Our further investigation found that on those labels, some of the gross vehicle weight ratings and/or tire pressure PSI could be incorrect. If your tires have a lower PSI than what is recommended for the GVWR, then there is a risk of a tire malfunction which could result in an accident. Due to the safety risk, Rosenbauer America is recalling the following fire trucks: All 2012-2021 Rosenbauer Commanders, Warriors and Avengers.

 

How do I know if my truck has this type of equipment? Rosenbauer is diligently working to analyze our data and determine the population effected. We are expecting that <1% of the population will have a safety risk due to the potential of underinflated tires.

 

To help us with this analysis, Rosenbauer is requesting that all our customers upload pictures of the certificate labels located on your truck’s B pillar. We have set up a secure website where you will input your customer name and contact info (Fig. 1 below). For additional reference, below is the location of the B pillar (Fig. 2 below). We kindly request that you submit pictures within 14 days of receiving this letter.

 

How do I resolve this important safety recall? Once we have analyzed the information on your certificate labels pictures, we will notify you again if your truck is part of the recall and if you need new certificate labels and an incomplete vehicle document. At that time, we will advise you to set your tires to the corresponding PSI on those labels. We plan to finalize this in the next 30-60 days.

In the interim, please check your truck tires for tread separation or bulges in tread or sidewall which indicates a potentially underinflated tire. If you witness tire malfunction, please submit pictures to Rosenbauer and your dealer of the certificate labels on the B pillar as well as the tire malfunction and contact your dealer immediately so they can submit a ticket.

 


Subject: Requesting increased speeds of trucks up to allowed ratings for tires

 

Applies to: 2012-2021 Rosenbauer Fire Apparatus

 

Reason: The purpose of this communication is to provide Rosenbauer Dealers requirements when discussing vehicle top speed and tire ratings with customers that exceed NFPA guidelines.

 

Action/Compliance: If the customer/dealer would like to exceed the vehicle top speed available for the type of apparatus and weight rating per NFPA (including Demo trucks), all the following conditions must be met:

1. The vehicle configuration must be capable of achieving their top speed request.

2. The tires must be rated for the top speed or greater.

3. The customer must sign an NFPA statement of exceptions.

 

Under no circumstances will Rosenbauer authorize a vehicle top speed in-excess of the tire ratings.

 

Please contact your regional manager with any questions.
