Defect Description

Seagrave Fire Apparatus, LLC (Seagrave) is recalling certain model year 2013-2014 TB30CS, TT06CX, XVOICS emergency vehicles, and 2014 TVOHCX, and TB50CO emergency vehicles equipped with IMMI-brand L9 seat belt buckles. When the button is pressed to release the seat belt, the latch plate can become partially engaged with the buckle, making the seat belt difficult to unlatch. Thus, these vehicles fail to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 209, "Seat Belt Assemblies."

Defect Consequence

If the latch plate remains partially engaged after the button is pressed, egress from the vehicle could be hindered which would increase the risk of injury in the event of an emergency.

Defect Corrective Action

Seagrave has notified owners, and dealers will inspect and replace the seat belt buckle, as necessary, free of charge. The recall begin late July 2014. Owners may contact Seagrave at 1-800-732-4728.

Notes

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
