Bombardier recalls snowmobiles for fuel tank, throttle problems

Quebec-based Bombardier is recalling about 2,700 Ski-Doo snowmobiles in the U.S. because they pose fire and burn dangers, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Wednesday.

The company has found fuel tanks may crack and leak fuel and fuel vapor, presenting a fire and burn hazard to consumers. Bombardier also warns the throttle cable may not function properly and may cause the driver to lose control of the speed of the vehicle.

No associated injuries or incidents have been reported.

The recall applies to the following year 2008 Ski-Doo models:

  • MXZ Adrenaline 800R.
  • MXZ X 800R.
  • MXZ TNT 500SS.
  • MXZ Trail 500SS.
  • Summit Everest 154 800R.

The snowmobiles were sold in the U.S. from August 2007 through October 2007 for between $9,700 and $11,200 US.

Consumers should stop using the snowmobiles and contact their dealer for a repair.
