Component: SEATS
Potential Number Of Units Affected : 22264
      Navistar, Inc. is recalling certain model year 2013-2014 IC Bus AE, and 2011-2014 BE, CE, and RE buses. These buses were manufactured February 11, 2010, through June 17, 2013. The passenger seat foam padding did not adequately reduce the impact forces to the knee in the lower outside corners of the seat back during compliance testing. Thus, these buses fail to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard "FMVSS" No. 222, "School Bus Passenger Seating and Crash Protection."
      In the event of a crash, the seat padding may not properly protect against knee impact force, increasing the risk of injury.
      Navistar will notify owners, and dealers will install polystyrene blocks in the lower outside corners of each seat to increase the knee protection, free of charge. The recall began on October 10, 2013. Owners may contact Navistar at 1-800-448-7825. Navistar's recall campaign number is 13512.
