For vehicles modified with a Ricon wheelchair lift by Mobility Works, the wheelchair lift platform can crack and as a result separate from the lift and come to rest against the vehicle lift door. Additionally, the link arms of the lifts may have pivot holes that are too large, allowing the bearings to move out of position. Either concern would cause the platform to fall out of the vehicle when the door is opened. This would increase risk of injury.
The automatic transmission may unexpectedly and suddenly shift into first gear, regardless of vehicle speed. This could cause the vehicle to jerk and slow without warning and lock the rear tires causing them to slide without warning. This could result in a loss of vehicle control and injury.
