1. 2010 Chevrolet Express EQUIPMENT ADAPTIVE NHTSA Campaign #14V706000

    • Date Announced: NOVEMBER 05, 2014
    • Vehicles Affected: 34

    Summary: Cummings Mobility Conversion & Supply (Cummings) is recalling certain model year 2006-2014 Ford E-150, E-250, E-350, Chevrolet Express, 2006-2008 Dodge Sprinter, and 2009-2014 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter, and 2013 Ford Transit Connect vehicles manufactured January 1, 2006, to October 8, 2014, equipped with certain model S2005, S2010, S5005, S5010, S5505, and S5510 wheelchair lifts manufactured by Ricon Corporation after January 1, 2006. The platform side plate of the affected wheelchair lifts may crack.

    Consequence: If the platform side plates crack, the lift platform can separate from the lift and come to rest against the vehicle's lift door. When the doors are opened, the platform may fall out, increasing the risk of injury to the lift operator.

    Actions: Cummings will notify owners to take buses to a Ricon dealer or service center who will install supplemental platform support bumpers. Any platform that has already started cracking will be replaced, free of charge. The recall began January 13, 2015. Owners may contact Cumming's customer service at 1-800-639-5438 or Ricon customer service at 1-800-322-2884. Cumming's number for this recall is 14E-041.

  2. 2010 Chevrolet Express AIR BAGS:FRONTAL NHTSA Campaign #14V117000

    • Date Announced: MARCH 17, 2014
    • Vehicles Affected: 303,013

    Summary: General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2009-2014 Chevrolet Express and GMC Savana vans manufactured January 27, 2009, through March 7, 2014 with a gross vehicle weight rating of 10,000 pounds and less and equipped with front passenger air bags. In the affected vehicles, during a frontal impact below the air bag deployment threshold, if an unbelted front passenger's head hits the instrument panel above where the passenger air bag is located, the panel may not sufficiently absorb the impact. As such, these vehicles fail to meet the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 201, "Occupant Protection in Interior Impact."

    Consequence: In the event of a crash below the air bag deployment threshold, an unbelted front passenger seat occupant has an increased risk of injury.

    Actions: GM will notify owners, and dealers will modify the passenger instrument panel free of charge. Notices to the owners of the heavy duty vans were mailed on April 28, 2014. The recall began on May 19, 2014. Chevrolet owners may call 1-800-630-2438. GMC owners may call 1-866-996-9463. GM's number for this recall is 14082.

  3. 2010 Chevrolet Express EQUIPMENT ADAPTIVE NHTSA Campaign #12V169000

    • Date Announced: APRIL 17, 2012
    • Vehicles Affected: 34

    Summary: Main mobility is recalling certain conversion vans built on model year 2008-2010 Chevrolet Express, 2009 GMC savana, and 2010 Ford transit connect chassis, and fitted with certain braun wheelchair lifts. Over time and with frequent use, the roll stop latches on the wheelchair lift's 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.

    Actions: Main mobility is working with braun to notify owners, and braun dealers will repair the vehicles, free of charge. Main mobility has not provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact main mobility at 1-716-759-6811. For detailed information & supporting documents, see the official NHTSA page concerning recall #12V169000 »

    • Vehicles Affected: 4,485

    Summary: General Motors has notified NHTSA of a defect in certain model year 2010 Chevrolet Express and GMC savana vans 2500, 3500 and 4500 series. Some of these vehicles have a condition in which the generator may develop a low resistance short within the voltage regulator.

    Consequence: The low resistance short could eventually generate enough heat to result in an engine compartment fire.

    Actions: Dealers will inspect and replace any suspect generators if necessary free of charge. The safety recall began on April 12, 2010.

    • Date Announced: MARCH 12, 2010
    • Vehicles Affected: 9,137

    Summary: General Motors is recalling certain model year 2009-2010 Chevrolet Express and GMC savana vehicles for failing to comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard no. 103, "windshield wiping and washing systems." These vehicles were built with heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) control knobs that may fracture and spin on the control shaft. The driver may no longer be able to control the heating, cooling, and ventilation for the vehicle.

    Consequence: If this condition affects the defrost system when it is required, it may decrease the driver's visibility, and could possibly result in a crash.

    Actions: Dealers will replace all HVAC control knobs free of charge. The safety recall began on March 11, 2010. Owners may contact Chevrolet at 1-800-630-2438 and GMC at 1-866-996-9463 or at the owner center at www.gmownercenter.com.
