Several news agencies have been reporting that all units of the 2009 through 2013 Volvo Bus 9700 coaches have been recalled over an issue with the vehicle’s wheelchair lifts.

The federal agency National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has warned readers that the wheelchair lifts in these vehicles may fail to be stowed in place, which could lead to an injury since the maintenance safety pins may not function properly due to a cylinder failure.

To prevent incidents caused by this issue, the company has decided to issue this recall right away.
