Two new recall expansions announced today have consumers double-checking their products.
Arctic Cat is recalling 19,000 F, XF, and M models of their 2012 snow mobiles. This round cites a faulty steering tie-rod as the reason for the recall. The initial Dec. 2011 recall was because of faulty headlights.
Arctic Cat recalled all-terrain vehicles last November, also for steering tie-rod issues. Arctic Cat wasn’t immediately available to comment on whether or not there is a connection between the tie-rod recalls.
Specialized Bicycles tacked on 460 model year 2012 Tricross Sport and 2012 Tricross Comp model to its Sept. 2011 recall of nine different 2011 model bikes that have faulty forks. The Advanced Group carbon forks can break, allowing the brakes to contact the wheel spokes during use.
This recall expansion makes it the 6th bike-related recall in the past two months; a list that includes handlebars, helmets, Giant bikes, and more.
