Turtle Top is recalling certain model year 2006-2010 transit buses equipped with Century-2 and/or Vista-2 wheelchair lifts. Over time 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.
Turtle Top will notify owners, and the repairs will be performed by authorized Braun dealers free of charge. The recall is expected to begin during August 2012. Owners may contact Turtle Top at 574-831-4340.
