August 30, 2013

Lion Bus is recalling certain model year 2013-2014 360 school buses.

The right side mirror cannot be positioned to have the complete right side of the vehicle in view, thus, these vehicles fail to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 111, 'Rearview Mirrors.' The driver may not be able to see people or objects along the right side of the vehicle, increasing the risk of personal injury or a crash.

Additionally, the size of the letters on decals are too small, thus, these vehicles also fail to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 217, 'Bus Emergency Exits and Window Retention and Release'. In the event of an emergency, occupants may not be able to read exiting directions which could result in personal injury.

Lion Bus will notify the owners of all affected school buses, and a Lion Bus service center will correct the mirror mounting to bring the bus into compliance free of charge.

For additional information on this recall, contact Lion Bus at 1-450-432-5466. Lion Bus' campaign ID number for this recall is C20130902.
