2015-11-03 (Published by NHTSA on 2015-11-18)
Recall Summary: Diamond Coach Corporation (Diamond) is recalling certain model year 2006-2011 VIP and PT 2000, 2200, 2500, 2800, 3200, and 3201 transit buses manufactured January 1, 2006, to December 31, 2011, and equipped with certain Ricon model S2005, S2010, S5005, S5010, S5505, S5510 wheelchair lifts. The affected lifts are equipped with folding link arms that may have pivot holes that are too big, allowing the bearings to move out of position.
Hazard: If the bearings move out of position, the stowed platform may have excessive movement resulting in failure of the platform mounting. This failure could cause the wheel chair lift platform to fall out of the vehicle when the doors are opened, increasing the risk of injury for the lift operator.
Remedy: Diamond will notify owners, and owners will inspect the link arms for damage or for displaced bearings. The platform will be inspected for cracks. Any damaged parts will be replaced, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in November 2015. Owners may contact Diamond customer service at 1-620-795-2191, or Ricon Customer Service at 1-800-322-2884. Note: These buses and wheelchair lifts were subject to a similar recall in 2014. All vehicles that received that recall remedy are still affected by this recall as well.
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.

Recall Summary: Diamond Coach Corporation (Diamond) is recalling certain model year 2006-2011 VIP and PT 2000, 2200, 2500, 2800, 3200, and 3201 transit buses manufactured January 1, 2006, to December 31, 2011, equipped with certain model S2005, S2010, S5005, S5010, S5505, and S5510 wheelchair lifts manufactured by Ricon Corporation. The platform side plate of the affected wheelchair lifts may crack.
Hazard: If the platform side plates crack, the lift platform can separate from the lift and come to rest against the vehicle's lift door. When the doors are opened, the platform may fall out, increasing the risk of injury to the lift operator.
Remedy: Diamond will notify owners to take buses to a Ricon dealer or service center who will install supplemental platform support bumpers. Any platform that has already started cracking will be replaced, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in November 2014. Owners may contact Diamond customer service at 1-800-442-4645 Ricon customer service at 1-800-322-2884.
