CPSC, Bombardier Recreational Products Inc., and Deere & Company Announce Recall of ATVs

The following product safety recall was conducted voluntarily by the firm in cooperation with the CPSC. Customers should stop using the product immediately unless otherwise instructed.

  • Some Bombardier 2003 Traxter® MAX; 2004 Traxter, Traxter MAX, Quest™ and Quest MAX; 2005 Traxter 5SP, 5SP MAX, CVT and CVT MAX vehicles and all-terrain vehicles (ATVs).
  • Some John Deere Buck, Buck EX, Buck EXT, Trail Buck, Trail Buck EX and Trail Buck EXT, and Buck 500 Auto ATVs.
  • Units: About 23,000

    Manufacturer/Importer: Bombardier Recreational Products Inc. of Valcourt, Quebec, Canada. John Deere branded units were distributed by Deere & Company of Moline, Illinois.

    Hazard: Front brake hose can be pulled out of its retaining brackets on either side of the ATV by foreign objects. This can cause the brake hose to wear by rubbing on the inner wheel or shock absorber spring seat, ultimately causing a brake fluid leak resulting in a complete loss of front braking capacity. This can lead to an increase in the braking distance and possible collision with bystanders, fixed objects, or other vehicles, causing serious injury or death.

    Incidents/Injuries: None reported.

    Description: The 2003, 2004, and 2005 year models of "Traxter," "Traxter MAX," and "Quest" Bombardier ATVs are involved in this recall.
