WASHINGTON, D.C. - Yamaha is recalling about 20,000 of its ATVs. The steering column support assembly can crack and cause the rider to lose steering control, posing a risk of injury or death to riders. Yamaha has received 19 reports of incidents involving the recalled ATVs. No injuries have been reported.
This recall involves the non-power steering 2008-2010 Grizzly models. They've been sold at Yamaha dealers nationwide from October 2007 through March 2010 for between $7,000 and $9,500.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled ATVs and contact their local Yamaha dealer to schedule a free repair. Registered owners were sent direct mail notification of the recall.
