2006-12-21 (Published by NHTSA on 2006-12-21)
Recall Summary: CERTAIN IC SCHOOL AND COMMERCIAL BUSES MANUFACTURED BETWEEN OCTOBER 11, 2005, AND OCTOBER 31, 2006. THESE BUSES HAVE THE FOLLOWING SAFETY ISSUES: IF THE DRIVER'S SEAT IS IN THE HIGHEST AND MOST REAR POSITION, THE BACK OF THE SEAT MAY LEAN AGAINST A BARRIER BEHIND THE SEAT, OR AGAINST THE SEAT BACK. THIS WILL PREVENT THE SEAT BELT FROM RETRACTING WHICH FAILS TO CONFORM TO FEDERAL MOTOR VEHICLE SAFETY STANDARD NO. 209, SEAT BELT ASSEMBLIES. WHEN ADJUST THE SEAT TO A HIGHER POSITION, THE DRIVER MAY PULL THE SEAT PAST THE LAST STOP SO THAT THE SEAT SITS ON THE ADJUSTING PIN, WHICH ALLOWS THE SEAT TO TEETER ON TOP OF THE PIN. IF OVER-TRAVEL OCCURS, THE UPPER SEAT PEDESTAL TUBE COULD SEPARATE FROM THE LOWER PEDESTAL TUBE DURING VEHICLE OPERATION. IF THE DRIVER IS SITTING IN THE DRIVER'S SEAT AND REACHES TO ADJUST THE SEAT HEIGHT, THEIR WEIGHT WILL CAUSE THE SEAT TO DROP, WHICH COULD RESULT IN THEIR HAND BEING PINCHED BETWEEN THE SEAT AND THE LEVER. THE DRIVER'S SEAT IS DIFFICULT TO ADJUST TO A HIGHER POSITION BECAUSE OF THE ADDITIONAL WEIGHT OF THE ALL BELTS TO SEAT (ABTS) DESIGN.
Hazard: THIS MAY RESULT IN PERSONAL INJURY.
