Winter is a great time for snowmobiling. Yet, when a snowmobile loses control on its own accord, the personal injuries can be devastating and may result in a host of Indiana and Illinois lawsuits. This may hold true for Artic Cat Snowmobile owners since these cats were recalled recently. The 2010 model Artic Cats manufactured at the company’s Thief River Falls, Minnesota plant were recalled. Owners are advised to immediately stop using the snow mobiles and to contact their local Artic Cat dealer.
In these types of recall cases, manufacturers will often discover flaws in equipment following reports from users. In the case of Artic Cat, there were 13 reports that the suspension arm cracked during use which may lead to loss of control of the vehicle. There were no reports of injury or accidents to date. Yet, engineers will typically design out the flaw to prevent the risk of the malfunction and consequential personal injuries following reports. So, it is wise for owners of all 2010 Arctic Cat Z1, TZ1, F, Bearcat, M, and CF model snow mobiles, including: all model feature and color variations are included in the recall to visit an Arctic Cat dealer for a repair.
Arctic Cat and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission joined together to announce the recall. Owners are typically contacted by mail and through announcements, such as, this announcement. If you have any questions regarding the recall, you may contact Artic Cat direct at 1-800-279-6851.
