Risks of crash prompt recall of snowmobiles

Posted on March 2, 2016 8:17 pm under Product Liability

Last month, Minnesota-based Arctic Cat Inc. recalled approximately 1,600 units of its 2016 Arctic Cat turbo 9000 snowmobiles due to the discovery that the brakes are prone to failing, which poses several hazards to the consumer, including serious injury and death, according to a notice released by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. Although the product is extremely dangerous, so far, there have been no injuries or deaths reported to the company.

The model numbers affected by this specific recall include:

  • M 9000
  • XF 9000
  • XF9000 Cross Trek
  • ZR 9000

The complete information associated with this recall is provided by the CPSC on their website. Consumers are encouraged by Arctic Cat not to use the product until it is repaired. Repairs will be provided free of charge by a registered Arctic Cat dealer.
