Arctic Cat is recalling 4,500 side-by-side utility vehicle after determining a mechanical defect can result in an increased risk of crash.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) reports that the throttle cable can stick. This prevents the throttle mechanism from reverting to an idle position upon release.
This can cause the rider to lose control of the vehicle, which can pose a crash hazard and increase the risk of injury.
Arctic Cat has received fourteen reports involving incidents with the throttle cable malfunctioning, including one report of a wrist injury.
Regardless of whether an accident or injury has happened, consumers should immediately stop using the recalled side-by-sides and contact a dealer to schedule a free repair.
Artic Cat is directly contacting all known purchasers.
