Steering Loss Recalls
A number of models have been recalled for steering control loss. When an ATV rider loses control of the steering while traveling up a steep dirt hill or going at high speeds on rocky terrain, it can easily lead the 300 + lb. vehicle to flip over on top of the rider. Recent recalls for steering control loss include:
- Honda TRX500, Model year 2008
- 2006-2008 Model Year MXU 500
- Polaris Model Year 2006 Hawkeye

When these vehicles cause a rider to have less steering control and cause them to rollover, the consequences can be severe and may include broken and fractured bones, head injuries, lacerations, and more.
