Prevost H3 Recall, Prevost X3 Recall, Prevost MTH XLII-45 Recall

Report Receipt Date: JAN 17, 2013 
NHTSA Campaign Number: 13V015000 
Component(s): EQUIPMENT 
Potential Number of Units Affected: 261 

Prevost is recalling certain model year 2010-2013 H3 and X3 coaches and MTH XLII-45E coach shells manufactured between June 29, 2009, up to June 4, 2012, and equipped with an Automatic Fire Detection and Suppression System (AFSS). There is the possibility that the AFSS could unintentionally activate due to wear of the linear thermal detection cable.
An activation of the AFSS causes the vehicle to come to an unplanned stop. This could increase the risk of a vehicle crash or personal injury.
If the fire suppression system goes off, the vehicle comes to an "unplanned" stop? Sounds like a crash to us and a serious defect.
