Spartan Motors recalls 190 RVs for seat belt possibly detaching

WASHINGTON — Spartan Motors is recalling certain 2014-2017 Utilimaster Walk-In Vans.

In the event of a crash, the seat belt D-ring mounting may detach, preventing the seat belt from restraining the occupant. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 210, “Seat Belt Assembly Anchorages.”

Remedy

Spartan will notify owners, and dealers will install a seat belt mounting reinforcement bracket, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin Aug. 25. Owners may contact Spartan customer service at 1.517.543.6400. Spartan’s number for this recall is 17020.
