145,000 Rhino vehicles recalled for safety concerns

US Recall News Posted on

Yamaha Motor Corp. USA recalled about 145,000 off-highway recreational vehicles Tuesday, after two models were involved in 46 deaths and hundreds of injuries.

The two-passenger Rhino 450, 660 and 700 vehicles are designed for those older than 16 with driver's licenses, though some deaths involved children who were passengers or operated vehicles against recommendations, said the Consumer Product Safety Commission.

All Rhino 450, 660 and 700 model vehicles were recalled to reduce rollover risk and improve handling and keep riders' limbs in the vehicles. Reported deaths occurred between the fall of 2003, when the vehicles were first distributed, through this year.

Owners should call their dealer to schedule repairs. For details, call Yamaha at 800-962-7926.
