Detailed Recall Information for Collins De516
|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.|
