I hope none of you went and bought a Can-Am Spyder after our last post, or you might have found yourself driving round in circles. Not quite, but 12,500 Spyders are being recalled after an unknown steering fault has apparently caused three injuries.
The units being recalled were manufactured between July 2007 and May 2009, with 9,932 models recalled in the US. The steering problem creates a small drift, which the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in the US describes as “the operator of an involved vehicle may need to exert a force greater than expected to initiate the turning of the steering handlebar off centre in order to correct vehicle drift from a straight line path.”
Whatever. Get in touch with Bombardier Recreational Products if you need more information, or contact your local dealer. Word is that Kongsberg Inc, supplier of the steering system, will pay for repairs.
