    • Date Announced: DECEMBER 09, 2008
    • Vehicles Affected: 6

    Summary: Rifled air conditioning (rac) is recalling 6 MY 2001 Chevrolet Express private Transport, MY 2005 thomas built FS65, MY 2006-2007 monitour bus, and MY 2007 C-2 school bus vehicles built on freightliner, and GM chassis and equipped with ricon platform style wheelchair lifts.
