Recall Summary: Eldorado National-California , Inc. (Eldorado) is recalling certain model year 2010-2015 Axess and EZRM, 2011-2015 XHF, and 2014-2016 Arrivo vehicles equipped with certain Recaro Ergo-M Commercial Bus Driver Seats. The affected seats have J-Brackets that may be missing welds which could allow the seat belt anchorage assembly to separate from the J-Bracket.
Hazard: If the seatbelt anchorage assembly separates from the J-Bracket, the bus driver may not be properly restrained in the event of a crash increasing their risk of injury.
Remedy: Eldorado will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the seats to determine if welds are missing. Any J-Bracket that is missing welds will be removed and replaced, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Eldorado customer service at 1-909-591-9557.
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.

2015-05-27 (Published by NHTSA on 2015-06-27)
Recall Summary: Eldorado National-California, Inc. (Eldorado) is recalling certain model year 2007-2015 Axess, E-Z Rider II, and XHF vehicles manufactured July 1, 2007, to May 2, 2015, and equipped with certain Cummins Westport ISL G engines. Excessive engine crankcase pressures may cause the 90-degree elbow of the vent tube assembly to detach from the crankcase ventilation breather, possibly allowing engine oil to come into contact with hot surfaces.
Hazard: If engine oil comes into contact with a hot surface, there is an increased risk of a fire.
Remedy: Cummins has notified owners on behalf of Eldorado, and Cummins service centers will administer the repairs which include securing the ends of the 90-degree elbow and reprogramming the electronic control module (ECM) with software that can adjust the engine output under misfire conditions to limit crankcase pressures. These repairs will be performed free of charge. The recall began on June 16, 2015. Owners may contact Eldorado customer service at 1-909-591-9557 or Cummins customer service at 1-800-343-7357.
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.

2014-10-31 (Published by NHTSA on 2014-12-11)
Recall Summary: Eldorado National-California, Inc. (Eldorado) is recalling certain model year 2008-2009 Axess, E-Z Rider II, XHF, Escort RE-A, and Transmark RE vehicles manufactured April 1, 2008, to December 30, 2008. The mechanical springs used to return the accelerator pedal to idle after the driver lifts their foot off the pedal may break.
Hazard: If the springs break, the pedal may not return to idle once the driver lifts their foot off the pedal. This unintended acceleration increases the risk of a crash.
Remedy: Eldorado has notified owners, and dealers will replace the affected pedal assemblies, free of charge. The recall began on December 8, 2014. Owners may contact Eldorado customer service at 1-909-591-9557.

2010-03-25 (Published by NHTSA on 2010-03-25)
Recall Summary: ELDORADO NATIONAL - CALIFORNIA HAS NOTIFIED NHTSA OF A DEFECT IN CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2005-2010 TRANSIT BUSES FITTED WITH RICON PUBLIC USE LIFTS. THE RESTRAINT BELT ON THESE LIFTS WAS DESIGNED TO PREVENT THE LIFT FROM MOVING, UNLESS THE TONGUE OF THE BELT IS FULLY ENGAGED AND LATCHED IN THE BUCKLE. RICON HAS DISCOVERED, HOWEVER, THAT IT IS POSSIBLE FOR THE OPERATOR TO INSERT THE BELT TONGUE INTO THE BUCKLE WITHOUT FULLY ENGAGING THE LATCHING MECHANISM. IN THIS CASE, THE RESTRAINT BELT WOULD APPEAR TO BE LATCHED, AND THE OPERATOR COULD RUN THE LIFT. IF THE RESTRAINT BELT TONGUE IS NOT FULLY ENGAGED INTO THE RESTRAINT BELT BUCKLE, AND LATCHED, THE LIFT MAY OPERATE WITH AN OCCUPANT ON THE PLATFORM.
Hazard: THE USER OF THE LIFT COULD BE INJURED SHOULD THE LIFT MOVE WITHOUT THE RESTRAINT BELT PROPERLY BUCKLED.
Remedy: ELDORADO NATIONAL - CALIFORNIA IS WORKING WITH RICON AND RICON WILL BE HANDLING THE REMEDY FOR THIS CAMPAIGN. PLEASE SEE RICON'S DEFECT REPORT 09E-060. RICON WILL PROVIDE CUSTOMERS WITH A WARNING DECAL AND A DVD-BASED TRAINING AID. THE RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN DURING MAY 2010. OWNERS MAY CONTACT RICON CUSTOMER SERVICE AT 1-800-322-2884 OR BY EMAIL AT WWW.DMATA@WABTEC.COM.
Additional Info: OWNERS MAY ALSO CONTACT THE NATIONAL HIGHWAY TRAFFIC SAFETY ADMINISTRATION'S VEHICLE SAFETY HOTLINE AT 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), OR GO TO HTTP://WWW.SAFERCAR.GOV .
