KYMCO Utility Task Vehicle Recall - CPSC.gov

(Best Syndication News) - The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced the voluntary recall of around 1,876 of KYMCO’s 2009 through 2012 utility task vehicles (UTVs). The recall was initiated because of the possibility that the exposed exhaust could catch the vehicle on fire. A free repair is being offered by the KYMCO USA dealers to address this concern.

KYMCO USA received three reports of the utility vehicles being damaged from fire. No injury reports have been received in regards to this recall.

The recalled vehicles were sold nationwide at KYMCO dealers between June 2008 and October 2011 for around $7,600 and $10,100.

The vehicle models being recalled are as follows:

2012 RFBUS33A 4CB100101 through 8CB230205

The vehicle VIN number can be found behind the right front wheel on the frame. The VIN number has the model year in the tenth position of the sequence and is an alphanumeric character as follows: 9 = 2009, A = 2010, B = 2011, C = 2012.
