2018 ELDORADO ADVANTAGE - EQUIPMENT ADAPTIVE

Eldorado National-Kansas (Eldorado) is recalling certain 2012-2018 Eldorado Aerotech, Aero Elite, Transtech, Advantage, World Trans and Impulse transit buses, equipped with Ricon S-Series and K-Series Titanium Wheelchair. The wheelchair lift positioning input cam may fail while the lift is in use, allowing the platform to travel higher than the vehicle floor height. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 403, "Platform Lift Systems."

  • Hazard
    If the wheelchair lift platform stops above the vehicle floor, the wheelchair user can tip inwards toward the vehicle when exiting the lift, increasing their risk of injury.
  • Consumer Action
    Eldorado will notify owners and Ricon dealers will replace the injection molded cam with an aluminum machined cam, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin October 25, 2018. Owners may contact Eldorado National-Kansas customer service at 1-800-955-4236.
