About 10,000 Mountain Cat and Crossfire sleds are affected
Arctic Cat, in cooperation with the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has recalled about 10,000 model year 2009 Mountain Cat and Crossfire snowmobiles.
According to the CPSC, the mounting hardware securing the fuel pump can allow fuel to leak, which poses a fire risk to consumers. Arctic Cat has received four reports of fuel leakage, but there have been no reports of personal injury or property damage.
This recall involves all 2009 model Mountain Cat and Crossfire snowmobiles within the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) range of 103896 through 118411. The VIN can be found stamped into the tunnel near the right-side footrest.
These vehicles, which were manufactured in the United States, were sold by Arctic Cat dealers nationwide from June 2008 through November 2008 for between $7,500 and $13,100.
