Summary: North American Bus Industries (NABI) is recalling certain model year 2010 416 and 40LFW transit buses manufactured from January 1, 2010, through July 31, 2010. The emergency release handles on the emergency egress passenger windows may fail, causing the window release mechanism to operate improperly.
Consequence: In the event of an emergency, the windows may fail to open and passengers may be delayed in exiting, increasing the risk of personal injury.
Remedy: NABI will inspect and replace the window release handles, free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin as early as September 2012. Owners may contact NABI at 1-256-831-4296.
