Pierce Manufacturing is recalling 135 2009-2013 model-year Pierce Enforcer, Impel, Quantum, Velocity and Arrow XT fire trucks equipped with TAK-4 front independent suspensions.

The emergency vehicles – manufactured from Nov. 11, 2009, to April 23, 2013 – may have front lower control arms that are at risk for cracking and fracturing, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports. If one of the lower control arms fractures, the attached wheel may separate.

Pierce dealers will inspect and replace the lower control arms, as necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin this month.

Vehicle owners can reach Pierce customer service at (888) 974-3723. Pierce's number for this recall is 74B257.
