Collins is recalling certain model year 2012 Collins, Corbeil and Mid Bus Brand SL, SH, DH, and DE school buses and multi-function school activity buses manufactured from March 12, 2012, through July 16, 2012. Some of the body mount bolts may not have been torqued to specification.
Without correctly tightened body mount bolts, there may be a reduction in the vehicle’s integrity, which in the event of a crash, may result in the passengers having an increased risk of injury.
Collins will notify owner, and dealers will repair the buses free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin on, or about, August 15, 2012. Owners may contact Collins at 1-800-533-1850, ext 424.
