      Eldorado National-California , Inc. "Eldorado" is recalling certain model year 2010-2015 Axess and EZRM, 2011-2015 XHF, and 2014-2016 Arrivo vehicles equipped with certain Recaro Ergo-M Commercial Bus Driver Seats. The affected seats have J-Brackets that may be missing welds which could allow the seat belt anchorage assembly to separate from the J-Bracket.
      If the seatbelt anchorage assembly separates from the J-Bracket, the bus driver may not be properly restrained in the event of a crash increasing their risk of injury.
      Eldorado will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the seats to determine if welds are missing. Any J-Bracket that is missing welds will be removed and replaced, free of charge. The recall began on February 8, 2016. Owners may contact Eldorado customer service at 1-909-591-9557.
