Recall Summary: Fleetwood RV, Inc. (Fleetwood) is recalling certain model year 2014 model American Eagle, American Heritage, American Revolution, American Tradition, Bounder, Bounder Classic, Discovery, Excursion, Expedition, Providence, South Wind, Storm, Terra, Terra SE, Jamboree Searcher, Jamboree Sport, Tioga Montara, and Tioga Ranger recreational vehicles equipped with IMMI-brand L9 seat belt assemblies. When the button is pressed to release the seat belt, the latch plate can become partially engaged with the buckle, preventing the seat belt from unlatching. Thus, this equipment fails to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 209, "Seat Belt Assemblies."
Hazard: If the seat belt buckle stays latched when the button is pressed, there is an increased risk of injury in an emergency, or the seat belt may not properly release in the event of an accident.
Remedy: Fleetwood will notify owners and dealers will inspect and replace the seat belt buckle, as necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in December 2013. Owners may contact Fleetwood at 1-800-322-8216. Fleetwood's recall number 131112FRV.
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.
