Washington, DC—(ENEWSPF)—September 11, 2012.
Summary: WMK Inc., d/b/a/ MobilityWorks, is recalling certain model year 2006 – 2012 Ford E-Series vehicles equipped with Century-2 and/or Vista-2 wheelchair lifts. Over time and with frequent use, the roll stop latches on the outer barrier may become bent or misaligned.
Consequence: 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.
Remedy: MobilityWorks will notify owners, and the repairs will be performed by authorized Braun dealers free of charge. MobilityWorks has not provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact MobilityWorks at 1-800-769-8267.
Notes: Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY: 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
