NHTSA Campaign Number: 20V222000 Manufacturer TransitWorks Components SEAT BELTS Potential Number of Units Affected 241

Summary TransitWorks is recalling certain Driverge vehicles based on 2019-2020 Ford Transit vans equipped with Freedman Seating Company (FSC) PT Foldaway and GO-ES 3-point Foldaway seats. The seat belt retractor block out zone may have not been set correctly, potentially resulting in a seat belt that may not properly secure the occupant. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 209, "Seat Belt Assemblies."

Remedy TransitWorks will notify owners, and dealers will replace the retractors, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Dealers can contact Freedman Seating Company for parts and reimbursement information at 1-800-443-4540.
