John Deere Utility vehicles recalled

About 5,400 John Deere Gator utility vehicles are being recalled for a braking problem, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Wednesday.

Improperly installed brake calipers force the vehicle to pull to one side, presenting an injury hazard to users. No incidents or injuries have been reported.

The recall affects the following models:


  • XUV 620i Gas, serial number MOXUVGX013294-016669.
  • XUV 620i Gas, serial number MOXUVGT011480-012186.
  • XUV 850D Diesel, serial number MOXUVDX011917-013329.
  • XUV 850D Diesel, serial number MOXUVDT010001-010449.
  • HPX 4X4 Diesel, serial number MOHP4DX050877-051453.
  • HPX 4X4 Gas, serial number MOHP4GX051221-052763.

The vehicles were sold by John Deere dealers in the U.S. from June 2007 through September 2007 for between $8,500 US and $10,600 US each.

Consumers should stop using the vehicles and contact a dealer for an inspection and repair.
