Recall Summary: Collins Bus Corporation (Collins) is recalling certain 2016 DH416 school buses manufactured February 18, 2016, to February 19, 2016 built on Ford chassis, and 2016 DE516 school buses manufactured January 18, 2016, to February 19, 2016 built on Chevrolet chassis. These vehicles are equipped with seats that may separate from the base frame due to bolt failure. As such, these seats fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety System (FMVSS) number 222, "School Bus Passenger Seating and Crash Protection."
Hazard: In the event of a crash, the seat can separate from the base frame, increasing the risk of injury to the seat occupant.
Remedy: Collins will notify owners, and the manufacturer of the seats will replace the seats free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in June 2016. Owners may contact Collins customer service at 1-800-533-1850. Collins' number for this recall is 16E037.
Additional Info: Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

2016-01-22 (Published by NHTSA on 2016-02-10)
Recall Summary: Collins Bus Corporation (Collins) is recalling certain model year 2015 DE416, DE416WR, DE500, DE516, DE516WR, DH400, DH416, DH416WR, DH500, DH516, SH400, SL400, TH400, and TL400 school buses manufactured May 1, 2015, to December 21, 2015, equipped with certain Transpec T6000, T6100, and T7000 series school bus stop arms. The affected stop arms have a reflective decal that may peel loose from the stop arm. As such, these stop arms fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 131, "School Bus Pedestrian Safety Devices."
Hazard: Without a reflective decal, the stop arms would have reduced visibility to other drivers, increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy: Collins will notify owners, and the stop arm blade assemblies will be replaced, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin February 17, 2016. Owners may contact Collins customer service at 1-800-533-1850, or Transpec customer service at 1-800-951-7867.
Additional Info: Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

2013-11-26 (Published by NHTSA on 2013-12-25)
Recall Summary: Collins Bus Corporation (Collins) is recalling certain model year 2013 model school bus and multi-functional school activity buses manufactured August 20, 2013, through November 13, 2013 and equipped with IMMI-brand L9 seat belt buckles. When the button is pressed to release the seat belt, the latch plate can become partially engaged with the buckle, making the seat belt difficult to unlatch. Thus, the buses fail to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 209, "Seat Belt Assemblies."
Hazard: If the latch plate remains partially engaged after the button is pressed, egress from the vehicle could be hindered, resulting in an increased risk of injury in the event of an accident or emergency.
Remedy: Collins will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the seat belt buckle, and if necessary, replace the seat belt buckles, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in early January 2014. Owners may contact Collins at 1-800-533-1850.
Additional Info: Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
