Chronology :

In November 2021, DTNA received a report from a dealer indicating that 2 new Minotour buses delivered to the dealer could be placed into gear while the lift was deployed. Thomas built buses immediately began an investigation to understand the issue and determine the scope. Production Quality records were reviewed to determine if the lifts had had a quality inspection. A review of production records indicated that the bus exhibiting the issue did not go through the normal production process. Thomas Built promptly began an investigation that included reviewing the production records to identify any additional buses that did not go through the normal production process; no such vehicles were found. In December 2021, upon determining the issue and the affected population, DTNA decided to conduct a non-compliance recall for certain Minotour school buses equipped with a wheelchair lift.
