TransitWorks is recalling three of its modified paratransit vans with Freedman Seating GO-ES seats for a possible locking defect.
The recall affects an estimated 776 2015-2018 Ford Transit, 2018 Ford Transit Connect, and 2016 Dodge Ram ProMaster vans. When the back seat cushion is rotated from the stowed position to the upright position, it may not remain locked into place if the van experiences a collision or a sudden stop.
In the event the seat back moves, the seat occupant has an increased risk of injury.
To fix the problem, TransitWorks has notified owners and instructed them to contact Freedman seats for a repair kit. Owners can reach TransitWorks customer service at (440) 759-5558.
