Recall Issued for 1,384 Arctic Cat ATVs, Reportedly a Crash Hazard

Posted on November 11, 2011

According to recent news and consumer reports, the Consumer Product Safety Commission has announced a recall issued for all-terrain vehicles made by the Arctic Cat Inc. located in Minnesota.  The off-road items have been recently under fire by the inspecting authorities since faulty steering tie-rods may possibly bend leading the rider to lose control of the vehicle.

All vehicles from the 2011 model named Arctic Cat XC 450 ATVs are to be recalled. The vehicles have either a green and black color scheme or a black and orange color scheme while “450 XC” can be found printed in the center.

The recall was made necessary after three different reports showed tie-rods bending without really harming any driver in the alleged accidents.

Consumers were already warned by the CPSC that all of these vehicles must not be used any longer. The manufacturer must be contacted right away so owners can be assisted in how to proceed about their malfunctioning vehicle.

Personal injury lawyers know that negligence can lead to many serious ramifications when it comes to businesses being incapable of assuming responsibility. As a Los Angeles motorcycle accident lawyer I hope that no more accidents will injury anyone who owns and rides the items from the Arctic Cat manufacturer.
