Accubuilt is recalling 890 MY 2006-2008 Ford E150, E250, and E350 cargo vans equipped with ricon platform style wheelchair lifts. These buses fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard no. 404, "platform lift installation in motor vehicles." The threshold warning system may not detect the presence of a wheelchair or mobility aid user in a certain spot within the defined threshold area.
Accubuilt is working with ricon to correct the wheelchair lifts free of charge (please see 07E095). The recall is expected to begin on or about October 6, 2008. Owners may contact ricon at 1-818-267-3000 or accubuilt at 1-800-837-8624.
