Goshen Coach "Goshen" is recalling certain model year 2011-2012 G-Force, 2006-2007 Sentry, and 2006-2014 GCII, Pacer, and Sentinel 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.
Goshen will notify owners, and Ricon will supply supplemental platform support bumpers. Any platform that has already started cracking will be replaced, free of charge. The recall began on December 8, 2014. Owners may contact Goshen customer service at 1-574-206-7004 or Ricon customer service at 1-800-322-2884.
