Additional information:

Among the 104 vehicle recalls the NHTSA has announced this August comes news of the following:

Freedman Seating Company (“Freedman”) has recalled an estimated 3,000 model year certain Freedman GO-ES Foldaway Seats, part numbers 43705, 45467, 48923, and 75719. When the back seat cushion is rotated from the stowed position to the upright position, the seat cushion may not remain locked into place when under load, such as in a crash or a sudden stop. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (“FMVSS”) number 207, “Seating Systems,” and number 210, “Seat Belt Assembly Anchorages.”

According to the NHTSA, in the event of a crash, if the seat back moves, the seat occupant has an increased risk of injury.

Freedman will notify affected the vehicle builders, and dealers for those manufacturers will inspect and repair the foldaway seat, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin September 30, 2018. Owners may contact Freedman customer service at 1-800-443-4540.
