Firm Recalls Wheelchair Lifts Featured

By Staff Writer April 01, 2019 323

New England Wheels is recalling three 2008, 2013 and 2014 Ford E-250 vehicles modified to be equipped with Ricon Wheelchair lifts.

The wheelchair lift positioning input cam may fail while the lift is in use, allowing the platform to travel higher than the vehicle's floor height. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 403, "Platform Lift Systems."

New England Wheels has notified owners, and Ricon dealers will replace the lift positioning input cam, free of charge. The recall began on March 18.
