2018 COLLINS SCHOOL BUS - SEATS

Collins Bus Corporation (Collins) is recalling certain 2011-2018 Collins SL, SH, DH, DE, and TH school buses, built on Promaster chassis, equipped with CE White/HSM SB11-30" series, standard, unbelted, school bus seats, or SB11-30" series school bus seats with lap belts only. The foam in the knee impact area of the lower seat back may not absorb enough impact in the event of a crash. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 222, "School Bus Passenger Seating and Crash Protection."

  • Hazard
    If the seat foam does not absorb enough impact energy, it can increase the risk of injury in the event of a crash.
  • Consumer Action
    Collins will notify owners, and dealers will install additional foam into the seat backs, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin October 31, 2018. Owners may contact Collins customer service 1-800-533-1850, extension 424. Collins' number for this recall is 18e056.
