Can-Am Recall 09V162000

NHTSA Campaign ID Component Manufacturer Recall Date Units Potentially Affected
09V162000 Steering Bombardier Recreational Products INC. 05/8/2009 9932
Defect Summary
Bombardier is recalling 9,932 model year 2008-2009 Can-Am Spyder Roadsters. A condition may exist where the operator of an involved vehicle may need to exert a force greater than expected to initiate the turning of the steering handlebar off center in order to correct vehicle drift from a straight line path. This higher than expected steering control input torque may cause a steering angle overshoot and an unexpected deviation of the vehicle from the operator’s intended path.
Consequence Summary
If this occurs, it can lead to a temporary out of lane excursion of the vehicle which increases the possibility of a crash with other traffic and or a drive off the road.
Corrective Summary
Dealers will inspect and replace/repair the appropriate components free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided an owner notification schedule. Owners may contact Bombardier at 1-450-532-6107.
