NHTSA Campaign ID Number: 12V087000

Component:  Power Train, Automatic Transmission, Gear position indication (PRNDL)

Potential number of units affected: 1,449

Summary: Coachmen RV is recalling certain model year 2011-2012 Mirada and Encounter recreational vehicles built on a Ford F-53 chassis, manufactured from February 1, 2010, through February 17, 2012. The gear shifter’s cable may break at the attachment to the transmission control selector arm assembly mounted on the steering column. If the cable breaks, the transmission gear indicator in the gear display in the instrument panel will remain in the first gear position regardless of the gear selected.

Consequence: An incorrect gear indication in the instrument panel may prevent the driver from knowing if they are in park or reverse, increasing the risk of a crash.

Remedy: Coachmen will notify owners, and dealers will replace the transmission selector arm assembly and the gear shifter’s cable assembly, free of charge. Coachmen has not provided a notification schedule for this campaign. Owners may contact Coachmen RV at 1-800-453-6064.

Notes: Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to Safercar.Gov [4].
