Default Prevost OKs Millennium Chassis Modification

Prevost Car Inc. engineers and management were recently present at Millennium Luxury Coaches’ manufacturing and sales facility in Sanford, Fla., for an inspection and review of the company’s “controversial modification to relocate the Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) inlet to the driver’s side of the coach,” according to a press release.

Prevost, a fully owned subsidiary of the Volvo Bus Corp., uses EPA 2010 compliant Volvo D13 engines in chassis for motorcoach conversion use, which includes the mandated DEF system. The chassis are constructed with the DEF fill inlet on the passenger’s side of the coach. Fill stations, which have recently started installing DEF pumps, are placing them on the driver’s side.

Responding to the challenge, Millennium, which uses Prevost chassis exclusively, developed its driver’s side DEF inlet. “After four revisions and countless hours at the fuel pump we have developed the only successful relocation of the inlet fill port for the Prevost DEF system,” said Nelson Figueroa, president of Millennium.

While there was little dispute that Millennium’s relocation worked, the company said that many in the industry doubted whether Prevost’s warranty would still remain intact after such a modification. A team of Prevost engineers and senior management, after an on-site visit and thorough inspection, determined that the Prevost warranty on DEF-relocated Millennium coaches would not be affected.

“We never had any doubts that our modification wouldn’t hold up to Prevost’s scrutiny, but it’s great to officially hear that our customers won’t have to worry about any warranty issues down the road, and can focus on what’s important, enjoying their coach,” stated Figueroa.
