Yamaha has issued a recall alert for 2008 models of its Yamaha Rhino 450 and 700 side-by-side vehicles. The brake caliper on the left front wheel could have been made incorrectly, resulting in a brake fluid leak.
This can cause loss of braking and vehicle control, posing serious safety risks to driver and passenger.
Consumers should stop using the recalled Rhinos and are asked to contact an authorized Yamaha Rhino dealer to schedule a free repair. Registered owners should have received a direct mail notification of the recall.
The recall involves model year 2008 Rhino YXR450 and YXR700 vehicles sold nationwide from October 2007 through March 2008. Contact your Yamaha Rhino dealer and provide your vehicle’s primary ID number to verify if your specific vehicle is included in the recall.
