Potential Number of Units Affected: 7,853
Summary: Morgan Olson is recalling certain model year 2009-2011 walk-in van type vehicles with a gross vehicle weight rating in excess of 4,536kg (10,000lbs), manufactured from September 1, 2009, through January 19, 2012, with sliding front doors. These vehicles do not have either a primary door latch system, or a door closure warning system. Therefore, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 206, "Door Locks and Door Retention Components."
Consequence: Without either a primary door latch system or a door latch system with a fully latched position and a door closure warning system as required by FMVSS 206, the door could partially open without warning and the driver may not be aware that the door is not fully latched, putting the driver at an increased risk of injuries in the event of a crash.
Remedy: Morgan Olson will notify owners, and dealers will repair the vehicles free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin during October 2012. Owners may contact Morgan Olson at 1-269-659-0200.
