BRP Recalls Can-Am Side-By-Side Vehicles Due to Fire Hazard

BRP is recalling about 25,000 side-by-side vehicles because debris such as leaves, hay and grass in wet terrain areas can collect in the vehicle’s exhaust pipe area in a short period of time.

A hot exhaust pipe and accumulated debris that has dried poses a risk of fire and personal injury. The recalled vehicles were sold at Can-Am dealers nationwide from April 2010 through November 2012 for between $11,700 and $21,000. This recall involves 2011, 2012 and early 2013 model gas-powered Can-Am Commander side-by-side vehicles. The model name is printed on the vehicle’s side panel. Models included in the recall are:
