Recently, Kubota Tractor recalled their “Sidekick” utility vehicle due to ongoing crash hazards. The CPSC (Consumer Product Safety Commission) listed a recall on their website for model number RTV-XG850. The CPSC’s website states “Components of the steering shaft/steering system could have been improperly assembled which can lead to loss of control, posing crash and collision hazards.”

According to the CPSC, approximately 3,170 models were sold in the United States. This recall includes serial numbers and serial numbers ranging from 31706-35058, Y1025-Y1310, 50011-50012, and 50075-52920. The owners of affected models should contact Kubota dealerships for further information.

In recent years, utility vehicles such as Kubota, have become increasingly popular due to their versatility and functionality. However, it is important to acknowledge the potential dangers and injuries associated with these vehicles. One of the major risks associated with utility vehicles is the risk of rollover. Losing control of the steering can easily lead to a rollover situation, which could be potentially deadly. Also, utility vehicles have additional dangers because there is almost no training for those who use these vehicles and typically, they are not fitted with safety equipment such as seatbelts.

In conclusion, while utility vehicles like Kubota offer many benefits and convenience, consumers must recognize the dangers associated with their operations.
