2019 CHAMPION CHALLENGER - STRUCTURE:BODY:DOOR/WINDOW:EMERGENCY EXIT

Champion Bus, Inc. (Champion) is recalling certain 2019 Challenger, Crusader, Defender and LF Transport and Goshen G-Force, Impulse and Pacer II shuttle buses equipped with Prolo roof emergency escape hatches. Due to a manufacturing issue, the roof hatch external handle may unexpectedly break under reasonable use.

  • Hazard
    If the roof hatch external handle breaks, in the event of an emergency, the hatch cannot be easily opened from outside the vehicle, increasing the risk of injury.
  • Consumer Action
    Champion will notify owners, and dealers will replace the handle, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin September 16, 2019. Owners may contact Champion customer service 1-810-724-1753, extension 415.
