Posted on December 16, 2014 9:49 am under Recreational Vehicle Accidents

Last October, all-terrain vehicle (ATV) maker Arctic cat announced a massive recall of 2008 and 2009 Arctic Cat single-rider and 2 UP style ATVs due to components in the front gear that may fail and cause loss of control. The company estimated that about 40,000 are covered by the recall.

The company already received 44 reports of front gear case failure, including 10 cases wherein the ATV stopped or the driver lost control of the car. Four injury reports have also been received, one of which involved an occupant who sustained broken ribs, and an injured knee and back.

The recalled units are:

  • All 2008 Arctic Cat ATVs with 400 cc and larger engines
  • 2009 Arctic Cat ATVs with 400 cc and larger engines, with production numbers 200001 to 203861, 808001 to 808137, and X25082 to X30243 (production numbers are the last 6 numbers found in the vehicle identification number, and can be found on the frame tube near the driver’s rear wheel
