Considering the safety of its wheelchair occupants, Elkhant has decided to recall the buses equipped with specific wheelchair lifts. The roll stop latches on the outer barrier with frequent use may become bent or misaligned and may cause the wheelchair occupant to defeat or ride over. When used over an elevated lift platform, this may cause the wheelchair occupant to fall and sustain injury.
Elkhart has decided to get the repairs done free of charge by an authorized Braun dealer and owners will be notified. The safety recall is expected to start in April 2012. Owners may contact Braun customer service at 1-800-488-0359 or they may contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration hotline at 1-888-327-4236, according to news reports .
