Summary

Chronology :

During development of a floor reinforcement, testing was conducted in October 2023, to validate that tracked seats could withstand the strength required by Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards, Standard #210, “Seat belt assembly anchorages.” The 2-place seats equipped with lap and shoulder seat belts failed the test.

The leg, and more precisely, the way it is attached to the track, was identified as the source of the failure. But since HSM, the seats supplier, had conducted the same test with success, further investigation was required.

The following months, further tests were conducted, both by HSM and Micro Bird, obtaining either nonconclusive or contradictory results. In the end, it was determined that the original hardware may or may not be sufficient to ensure that 2-place seats equipped with lap and shoulder seat belts meet the requirements of Standards #210, and it was decided, on June 12, 2024, to recall the vehicles designed with those seats.

Micro Bird has not received any report of incident or claim regarding this defect
