People who like to enjoy the snow cruising around on Arctic Cat Inc. snowmobiles will want to be sure they aren’t riding on one recently recalled because the driver could lose control of the vehicle.
About 16,500 snowmobiles are being recalled after discovering that the front lower suspension arm can crack while in use, according to news reports. The faulty suspension arm could cause the rider to lose control, posing a risk of severe injury or death, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.
The snowmobiles affected by the recall include all 2010 Arctic Cat Z1, TZ1, F, Bearcat, M, and CF model snowmobiles in all the variations of color and model features.
Consumers who think they may have a recalled snowmobile can find the model name on the side of vehicle, in the registration materials and owner’s manual. Consumers will also be notified by mail.
As a North Charleston personal injury lawyer , I urge consumers to stop riding the recalled snowmobiles and schedule an appointment with their local Arctic Cat snowmobile dealer to receive a free repair. For further information concerning the recall, consumers can contact Arctic Cat at (800) 279-6851 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. CT Monday through Friday or visit its website .
