Pierce Manufacturing is recalling 191 Pierce Arrow XT, Dash CF, Enforcer, Quantum, and Velocity emergency vehicles in the 2014 and 2015 model years, so dealers can fix a potential problem with the driveshafts.

In these vehicles, which were manufactured from Nov. 3, 2014, through July 31 of this year, the driveshaft may bend or twist and eventually disconnect from the vehicle, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Pierce dealers will install a stronger driveshaft, free of charge. Vehicle owners will be renotified when replacement parts are available.

Vehicle owners can reach Pierce customer service at (888) 974-3723. Pierce's number for this recall is 74B265.
