On April 11, 2024, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) announced a recall of more than 19,000 Intimidator and Mahindra branded utility vehicles (UTVs) due to a defect that poses a crash hazard. According to the recall, the UTVs were found to have a faulty universal joint that can fail and pierce/severe the brake line, creating a crash hazard.

The recall spans several UTV models with production dates ranging from as early as 2013 to as recent as 2023.
