2021 BLUE BIRD ALL AMERICAN - SEAT BELTS:FRONT:ANCHORAGE

Blue Bird Body Company (Blue Bird) is recalling certain 2019-2021 Vision and All-American transit buses. The three-point seatbelt assembly may have been installed without reinforcing washers under the floor at the anchorage point, possibly preventing the assembly from remaining anchored in the event of a crash. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 210, "Seat Belt Assembly Anchorages."

  • Hazard
    In the event of a crash, seat belt anchorages that do not remain secured increase the risk of injury to those seat occupants.
  • Consumer Action
    Blue Bird will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the seat belt anchorage point hardware and install any missing hardware as needed, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin September 11, 2020. Owners may contact Blue Bird customer service at 1-478-822-2242. Blue Bird's number for this recall is R20AX-NSB.
