National Van Builders, Inc., "National Van Builders" is recalling certain model year 2006-2011 Ford E-150, E-250, and E-350 vehicles equipped with Braun Century-2 and/or Vista-2 wheelchair lifts. Over time and with frequent use, the roll stop latches on the outer barrier may become bent or misaligned.
A wheelchair occupant may defeat or ride over the insufficiently latched roll stop. If this occurs when the lift platform is in an elevated position, the wheelchair's occupant could fall and sustain injury.
National Van Builders will notify owners during October 2012, and the repairs will be performed by authorized Braun dealers free of charge. Owners may contact National Van Builders, Inc., at 1-508-222-2272.
