Summary:
      Autocar Industries, LLC "Autocar" is recalling certain model year 2012-2014 Xpert vehicles manufactured July 11, 2011, through March 5, 2014. During manufacturing, the floor mat may have been captured between the seat brackets and the cab sheet metal at all four connection points. This could cause the torque on the bolts to relax to below the required torque, allowing them to loosen. As such, these vehicles do not conform to Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard "FMVSS" number 207, "Seating Systems."
Consequence:
      Loose bolts may allow the seat to move in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of injury to the seat occupant.
Remedy:
      Autocar will notify owners, and dealers will correct the seat mounting free of charge. The recall is expected to began in June 2014. Owners may contact Autocar's customer service at 1-765-489-5499. Autocar's number for this recall is M-1405.
