After Nearly 50 Deaths, Yamaha and CPSC Announce Recall of Defective Vehicles


Posted on Apr 01, 2009

On March 31, it was reported that Yamaha Motor Corp., in conjunction with the Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) recalled three models of its defective two-passenger recreational vehicles for urgent repairs after they were involved in 46 deaths, and hundreds of other personal injuries since 2003. From the complaints received, it appears that the vast majority of the injuries were caused by rollovers - which even occurred at low speeds.

As part of its free repair offer, Yamaha has agreed to provide customers that bring in their Rhino vehicles for the repair with a free helmet. And as part of the recall, Yamaha has agreed to suspend all sales of these vehicles until the repairs are made.
