The United States Consumer Product Safety Commission issued a recall for almost 49,000 utility vehicles due to a crash and injury hazard. The products in question are the Kubota RTV-X1100C Model Utility Vehicles which were manufactured in the United States.
The recall states that these utility vehicles, specifically the ones from 2013 through 2021, should not be used by customers. Costumers should contact an authorized Kubota dealer to exchange their floor mats. The floor mats on the recalled Kubota vehicles have the tendency to warp or degrade, which can interfere with the throttle pedal, posing a crash and injury hazard.
The distributor of these vehicles, Kubota Tractor Corporation, of Grapevine, Texas, and its authorized dealers, have agreed to provide a new floormat installed by the dealer that will be secured by rivets to the floor in the cases where the floormat is warped or degraded. If not, then the dealer will complete a modification to the existing floormat by trimming the mat and then securing it by rivets to the floor.
The affected units were sold nationwide from April 2013 through September 2021 for between $21,300 and $22,950. Kubota received one report of a loss of control that resulted in black eyes and minor bruising. The recalled models may include an additional letter after the “C” and have serial numbers ranging from 10001 through 67546.
