RE: CAN-AM™ COMMANDER™ - ACCUMULATION OF DEBRIS IN THE EXHAUST AREA IN VERY SPECIFIC RIDING TERRAINS AND CONDITIONS - FIRE HAZARD

    October 24, 2012

     

    Dear Can-Am Owner,

    This notice is being sent to you in accordance with the requirements of the Consumer Product Safety Act and the Canada Motor Vehicle Safety Act. Bombardier Recreational Products Inc. and BRP US Inc. ("BRP") have decided that a defect which relates to motor vehicle safety exists on some Can- Am Commander side-by-side models and are conducting a safety recall.

     

    What is the potential problem?

    Some very specific riding terrains and conditions where the vehicle is driven in water (minimum of 310 mm, 12 inches deep) containing an important quantity of floating debris such as grass, hay and leaves may generate significant accumulation of debris in a short period of time in the exhaust area.

    This accumulation could lead to a vehicle fire when the exhaust pipe is hot and the debris are dried. In some situations, this could result in serious property damages, injuries or even death.

    November 14th 2011

     

    Dear Can-Am Owner,

     

    What is the potential problem?

    Some vehicles may have been delivered or repaired with a DPS that has cracks on its main shaft. Pieces may detach inside the DPS and may block gears resulting in a sudden limitation of the vehicle steering range. In some situation, the operator could loose control of the vehicle which could result in serious injuries or even death.

     

    Which models are involved?

    Model              Model Year 

    Outlander         2010 – 2011 DPS equipped

    Renegade         2010 – 2011 DPS equipped
