Supreme Corporation (Supreme) is recalling certain 2014-2016 Classic American Trolley vehicles equipped with Ricon K-series or S-Series Ricon Wheelchair lifts. The wheelchair lift positioning input cam may fail while the lift is in use, allowing the platform to travel higher than the vehicle's floor height. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 403, "Platform Lift Systems."
If the wheelchair lift platform stops above the vehicle floor, the wheelchair user can tip inwards towards the vehicle when exiting the lift, increasing the risk of injury.
Supreme will notify owners, and Ricon dealers will replace the lift positioning input cam, free of charge. The recall began May 3, 2019. Owners may contact Ricon customer service at 1-800-322-2884.
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.
