About 5,700 model year 2007 PZ50 snowmobiles were recalled due to loss of steering ability when buildup of snow and ice occurs around the steering idler arm, posing a risk of injury and death to drivers and passengers. However, there have been no injuries reported, according to a Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) report.
Consumers should immediately stop using the PZ50 snowmobiles and contact an authorized Yamaha snowmobile dealer to schedule a free repair. Registered owners were sent a direct mail notification of the recall.
The snowmobiles were sold from June 2006-September 2007 by Yamaha dealers nationwide. Yamaha voluntarily conducted the snowmobile recall in cooperation with the CPSC.
