Yamaha Recalls ATVs

Yamaha Recalls ATVs

According to reports, Yamaha is recalled the Rhino ATV due to concerns regarding the braking systems on the vehicle.

The recall reportedly involves an estimated 7800 Rhino Side-by-Side ATVs, which are all terrain vehicles.

Break Safety Concerns

The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) claims that the brake caliper on the left front wheel of the recalled ATVs may have been manufactured incorrectly.

The agency says that this defect could result in brake fluid leaking and cause loss of control and braking of the vehicle.

ATVs Recalled

The recall reportedly covers Model Year 2008 Rhino YXR450 and YXR700 Side-by-Side Vehicles, which have been sold at Yamaha dealerships throughout the country.

While ATVs are known to be more prone to accidents than other vehicles, the Yamaha Rhino ATV is more likely to be involved in a rollover than other ATV models.

Victims of such accidents could be harmed in the following ways:

  • Get broken or crushed legs
  • Have broken or crushed feet and ankles
  • Become disabled
  • Have limbs amputated

Consumers who own the recalled Rhino ATV are encouraged to stop using them immediately and contact a Yamaha Rhino dealer to schedule a free repair.
