Micro Bird 2013 G5 school buses fail to conform to the requirements of FMVSS No. 221

Corporation Micro Bird, Inc. (Micro Bird) is recalling certain model year 2013 G5 school buses manufactured from April 29, 2013, through July 4, 2013.

Problem: The joint in the metal ceiling panel may not have been glued properly, thus the buses fail to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 221, “School Bus Body Joint Strength.” In the event of a crash, the metal ceiling panel may separate from the interior compartment structure, increasing the risk of injury to a passenger.

Solution: Micro Bird will notify owners, and dealers will affix the ceiling panels with rivets and glue, free of charge. Owners may contact Micro Bird at 1-819-477- 2012. Micro Bird’s number for this campaign is 13-054-JTU.
