Cleveland, OH—MTD Consumer Group Inc., in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, voluntarily recalled Cub Cadet Volunteer utility vehicles due to a risk of loss of control. The CPSC announced the automotive recall, which affects approximately 200 units, on Tuesday, Nov. 23, 2010.
While no injuries have been reported in connection with the Cub Cadet Volunteer utility vehicles, the Ohio-based manufacturer initiated the recall upon discovering that the front lower ball joint can potentially detach. The defect can leave consumers vulnerable to crash-related injuries.
According to the CPSC news release, “This recall involves four-wheel drive Cub Cadet Volunteer gasoline-powered utility vehicle. Model numbers included in the recall are 37BB475H710, 37BC465D710, 37BC466D710, 37BK466D710, 37BK46GD710, 37BM466D710, 37BM467D710 and 37BM46GD710. The serial number range is 1C290Z50001 through 1D280Z50007. Serial numbers included in the recall have a “C” or “D” in the second position and a “0″ as the fifth digit. Model and serial numbers are printed on a plate located under the driver’s seat. “Cub Cadet” is printed on the hood.”
Nationwide Cub Cadet dealers sold the dangerous utility vehicles between April 2010 and September 2010. Prices ranged from $6,800 to $9,800.
Consumers have been urged to cease use of the recalled vehicles and contact their area Cub Cadet dealer to schedule a complimentary repair. The manufacturer is making an effort to contact all known consumers.
