All-terrain vehicle are fun, but they can be very dangerous if defective or misused. According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, BRP U.S. Inc has recalled several all-terrain vehicles because the “dynamic power steering can fail, resulting in the sudden loss of steering control. This poses a risk of injury or death to riders.”
If you own one of these ATVs, please stop using it immediately, and do not allow anyone access to it.
The following is an itemization of the recalled models:
