Arctic Cat Recalls All 2008 and Some 2009 ATVs
Arctic Cat has issued a recall notice for all of its ATVs manufactured in 2008 and a portion produced in 2009.
According to the recall notice, a component in the front gear box may not meet the company’s standards. There are no confirmed reports of serious injuries traced to the front gear case.
“Consumer safety is at the top of Arctic Cat’s values,” says Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Chris Twomey. “We ask ATV owners of affected models to stop riding their vehicles and to bring them to one of our dealers, so we can make the necessary repairs free of charge, and allow users to ride their ATVs again as soon as possible.”
This recall affects an estimated 35,386 ATVs from the 2008 model year and 4,495 ATVs from the 2009 model year. All registered owners of the affected ATVs will be notified by direct mail. A toll-free number is available for consumers to call with any questions: US 1-800-279-6851, CANADA 1-800-373-0717.
