2018 VAN-CON WHEELCHAIR LIFT BUS - EQUIPMENT ADAPTIVE

Van-Con, Inc. (Van-Con) is recalling certain 2016-2018 Van-Con Dual Rear-Wheel school buses, model 33803, built on Chevrolet 3500 chassis and equipped with wheelchair lifts. The lifts in the affected vehicles may not deactivate until they are beyond the acceptable limit for being uneven. As such, these lifts fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 403 "Platform lift systems" and FMVSS number 404 "Platform lift installations."

  • Hazard
    A lift platform that is uneven may cause a fall, increasing the risk of an injury.
  • Consumer Action
    Van-Con will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the threshold warning system, adjusting it as necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin March 9, 2018. Owners may contact Van-Con customer service at 1-732-356-8484.
