About 7,000 Arctic Cat snowmobiles are being recalled because the headlamp fuse can fail, disorienting the operator during periods of limited visibility and posing a crash hazard.
Arctic Cat discovered this condition during production testing of these models. There have been no reports of headlamp failures or injuries.
Recalled snowmobiles can be identified by the last six numerals of the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) in the following ranges: 105092 through 112175 or 800001 through 800033. The model name is located on each side of the hood. The VIN is located on the right side tunnel. The snowmobiles come in a variety of color combinations: Black, White and Orange, Black and Orange, and Black and Green.
Arctic Cat dealerships sold the recalled models nationwide from May 2011 through September 2011 for approximately $10,500 to $13,000. They were made in the United States.
Consumers should immediately stop using these snowmobiles and contact their local Arctic Cat snowmobile dealer to schedule a free repair. Arctic Cat has notified owners of these snowmobiles directly by mail.
