Halcore Group Recalls Horton Ambulances

October 27, 2014

Halcore Group is recalling 29 2014 model-year Horton ambulances – models 403, 453, 457, 603 and 623 – equipped with Liquid Spring-brand aftermarket suspension kits, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports.

The mounting bracket that attaches the suspension fluid tank to the frame may fail, allowing the fluid tank to separate from the vehicle and pose a road hazard. The ambulances in question were manufactured from Feb. 1 to Aug. 31 of this year.

To fix the problem, Horton Emergency Vehicles dealers will install a redesigned bracket, free of charge. Ambulance owners can reach Horton customer service at (614) 539-8181, or Liquid Spring customer service at (765) 474-7816, extension 109.
