Turtle Top is recalling certain model year 2006-2014 Odyssey, 2008-2009, 2011 Odyssey LT, and 2007-2008, 2010-2012 Odyssey XL, 2008, 2012 Terra Transport, and 2007-2008, 2013 Van Terra transit buses equipped with certain model S2005, S2010, S5005, S5010, S5505, and S5510 wheelchair lifts manufactured by Ricon Corporation. The platform side plate of the affected wheelchair lifts may crack.
If the platform side plates crack, the lift platform can separate from the lift and come to rest against the vehicle's lift door. When the doors are opened, the platform may fall out, increasing the risk of injury to the lift operator.
Turtle Top will notify owners to take buses to a Ricon dealer or service center who will install supplemental platform support bumpers. Any platform that has already started cracking will be replaced, free of charge. The recall began November 18, 2014. Owners may contact Turtle Top customer service at 1-574-831-4340 or Ricon customer service at 1-800-322-2884.
