Summary: Mobility Services, Inc., (Mobility Services) is recalling certain model year 2006-2010 Ford E-150, E-250, and E-350 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: Mobility Services will notify owners, and the repairs will be performed by authorized Braun dealers free of charge. Mobility Services has not provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Mobility Services, Inc., at 1-718-267-2921.
