BUSES RECALL * USA: 8000 Starcraft vehicles

* Indiana - 8,000 Starcraft buses recalled


-- More than 8,000 shuttle buses manufactured by Starcraft Bus will be recalled as the result of a class-action suit. From 2002 to 2007, the maximum cargo capacity was mislabeled on buses the Goshen company manufactured, according to a news release from the law firm Richardson, Patrick, Westbrook and Brickman... It was discovered that the buses were not weighed with a full tank of fuel, as required by federal law, which can affect the safety standards of the vehicle. The problem was found when a church noticed the label on its bus showed it could not carry cargo, even though the vehicles came with luggage racks... The church’s bus was then weighed and was found to exceed the weight rating, according to the release. Originally, about 400 buses were recalled, but further investigation found a little more than 8,000 needed to recalled... Starcraft and its parent company Forest River will have to modify the recalled buses to comply with federal regulations and pay owners $1,500 for each seat removed, according to the release...
