On September 25, 2014, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) said Georgia-based ROV maker Bad Boy Buggies recalled close to 4,500 Bad Boy Buggies ROVs due to a compromised braking system that makes the units more prone to crash.
The recalled unit, gas and electric-powered Bad Boy Buggies ROV, were sold nationwide between August 2012 and May 2014. Affected ROVs are labeled with serial numbers ranging from 8004970 to 8012901, which can be located on a plate in the steering column. According to CPSC, the parking brake was adjusted incorrectly and the brake lines were improperly bled, making the units more prone to brake-related crashes.
The company said affected consumers must contact their dealership immediately for a free repair.
