          Can-Am Commander

          2012 Can-Am Commander 1000 XTBRP issued two separate recall notices for the Can-Am Commander. The first notice was issued on January 10 due to a improper assembly of the steering column to the rack and pinion, which can result in the loss of steering control. This recall affects about 3,400 models, including the 2011-12 Can-Am Commander 800 and 1000, 2011-12 Can-Am Commander XT 800R and 1000, 2011-12 Can-Am Commander X 1000, and 2012 Can-Am Commander Limited 1000.

          BRP has received three reports of loss of steering, but no injuries have been reported. Affected models were sold at Can-Am dealers nationwide from April 2011 through December 2012 for between $11,700 and $21,000.

          The second Can-Am Commander recall was issued on January 29. According to the recall notice, debris such as leaves, hay and grass in wet terrain areas can collect in the vehicle’s exhaust pipe area in a short period of time. A hot exhaust pipe and accumulated debris that has dried poses a risk of fire.
