According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Spartan ERV has issued a recall of all units of the 2005 through 2012 Star Series emergency vehicle models over a possible personal injury risk.
The reports indicate that the pins that are installed in order to keep the ladder in place might not function properly, increasing the risk of a personal injury. The federal agency has stated that if the pins back out while being used, the ladder and the ladder rack arm assembly may cave in and injuries may ensue as a result.
All vehicles affected will have the locking nuts and spacers installed in order to maintain the pins secured. You can read more on this recall announcement by following this link.
