Can-Am® Commander Side-by-Side Off Road Vehicles Recalled PDF Print E-mail

4x4Wire Aftermarket Guide - Consumer Advisories and Recalls
Written by CPSC   
Sunday, 10 February 2013 12:20

This recall involves 2011, 2012 and early 2013 model gas-powered Can-Am Commander side-by-side vehicles due to potential fire hazard from 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. The firm has received 18 reports of fires related to accumulated debris in the exhaust pipe area, including one report of minor burns to the hand.

This recall follows an earlier recall of Model Year 2011 and Model Year 2012 Can-Am Commander vehicles due to improper assembly of the steering column to the rack and pinion which can result in the loss of steering control, posing a risk of serious injury or death to the user, passenger or bystanders. The vehicles were sold through Can-Am dealers nationwide from April 2010 through November 2012 for between $11,700 and $21,000.








BRP; toll-free at (888) 638-5397, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, or online at www.can-am.brp.com and click on “recall information” under the owner center for more information.

CPSC is committed to protecting consumers and families from products that pose a fire, electrical, chemical, or mechanical hazard.
