Double K is recalling certain model year 2007-2009 Hometown Trolley Villager and model year 2009 Hometown Trolley Mainstreet vehicles equipped with a Braun Vista-2 or Century-2 wheelchair lift. Over time and with frequent use, the roll stop latches on the outer barrier may become bent or misaligned.
A wheelchair occupant may defeat or ride over the insufficiently latched roll stop. If this occurs when the lift platform is in an elevated position, the wheelchair’s occupant could fall and sustain injury.
Double K will notify owners, and the repairs will be performed by authorized Braun dealers free of charge. Double K has not provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Double K at 1-478-822-2242.
