Additional information:

Among the twenty-nine (29) recalls the NHTSA has announced this October comes news of the following:

Logo - SynTec Seating Solutions, LLCSynTec Seating Solutions, LLC (“SynTec”), a High Point, North Carolina establishment, has recalled an estimated 1,156,972 model year S3B Base and S3C Base Convertible School Bus Seats marketed, sold and delivered in the United States.

US NHTSA Safety Notification 19E065000 reports the Seats may have been manufactured with Styrene blocks that do not provide sufficient impact absorption in areas around the steel seat frame of the back support. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 222, “School Bus Passenger Seating and Crash Protection.”

According to the NHTSA, the lack of impact absorption increases the risk of injury in the event of a crash.

SynTec will notify the affected bus manufacturers, and dealers for these manufacturers will install an additional impact material between the re-bond back and the vinyl back cover, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Bus owners may contact SynTec customer service at 1-336-862-7509 during normal business hours, Monday to Friday, Eastern Standard Time (“EST”) for more information.

You may also contact the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153) during normal business hours, Eastern Standard Time, or visit https://www.safercar.gov/.
