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.

2012-07-20 (Published by NHTSA on 2012-07-20)
Recall Summary: Collins is recalling certain model year 2012 Collins, Corbeil, and Mid-Bus school bus and multi-function school activity buses, models SL400, SH400, DH400, DH416 with 139" wheel base and two-passenger seat set at 24, 25, 26, 27, or 28" hip to knee spacing and three-passenger seat set at 24, 25, or 26" hip to knee spacing and model year 2012 DH500 and DH516 with 159" wheel base and two-passenger seat set at 28 or 29" hip to knee spacing and three-passenger seat set at 27, 28, or 29" hip to knee spacing. These buses were manufactured from March 12, 2012, through September 20, 2012. In some floor plans on these models of buses, there is the possibility that the fuel filler hose was damaged during seat or seat track installation or that a seat bolt and/or the seat bolt bracket interferes with the routing of the fuel fill hose. The fuel fill hose runs from the exterior of the bus, through a housing in the bus, then under the bus and toward the fuel tank. Some floor plans have a seat or track bolt that comes through the floor near the area where the hose crosses the chassis frame. In addition to possible damage during installation, there is a chance that the bolt or the bracket can abrade or puncture the hose in this area.
Hazard: If the integrity of this hose is breached, fuel could spill. In the case of gasoline or diesel vehicle, fuel could spill during fueling operations or in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of a fire. In the case of a propane vehicle, propane gas could be released during fueling operations (check valves prevent release from the tanks) creating the risk of a fire during filling.
Remedy: Collins will notify owners, and dealers will repair the buses free of charge. The safety recall began on August 13, 2012. 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.
