Kubota Manufacturing of America Corporation, of Gainesville, Ga., has recalled about 970 Off-road Utility Vehicles. Carbon monoxide can accumulate in the vehicle cab when the engine is idling and the vehicle is not moving, resulting in carbon monoxide poisoning. Two instances of headaches attributed to carbon monoxide gas have been reported. The recalled vehicle is the Kubota RTV500 with cab. It is a 4×4 utility vehicle with side-by-side seating for two people, a small cargo bed and an optional cab. The vehicle is gasoline-powered and available in the colors orange or camouflage. The model number “RTV500” is on the doors of the vehicle. “Kubota” and “4×4” are on the outside of the cargo bed.
The off-road vehicles were sold at authorized Kubota dealers nationwide from September 2008 through April 2012 for between $12,900 and $13,200. Consumers should contact their Kubota dealer to schedule a free repair of the recalled vehicle, including the installation of a high-velocity exhaust tail pipe, the installation of special seals inside the cab and a check of the ventilating system. For more information, contact Kubota toll-free at (800) 752-0290 between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. PT Monday through Friday, or visit the company’s website at www.kubota.com and click on Safety/Safety Notices.
