Summary:
Collins is recalling certain model year 2012 Collins, Mid-Bus, and Corbeil SL, SH, DH, and DE model school and multi-function school activity buses manufactured from March 12, 2012, through July 2, 2012. The electrical panel cover above the driver may not be adequately secured. Vibration can cause the designed disks to lose grip and release the cover without warning.
Consequence:
The panel could fall and injure or distract the driver, leading to a crash.
Remedy:
Collins will notify owners, and dealers will repair the buses free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin on, or about, September 20, 2012. Owners may contact Collins at 1-800-533-1850.
Notes:
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.
