BRP Can-Am Side-By-Side Recall

BRP has recalled 25,000 of its Can-Am Commander Side-by-Side off-road vehicles due to possible fire hazards.

BRP says debris such as leaves, hay and grass in wet terrain areas can collect in the vehicle’s exhaust pipe area in a short period of time. A hot exhaust pipe and accumulated debris that have dried increases the risk of a fire.

The effected Commander Side-by-Side off-road verhciles were sold at nationwide Can-Am dealers between April 2010 through November 2012, costing between $11,700 and $21,000.

BRP says the following models/years are included in the recall:.

Model Year 2011:

  • Can-Am Commander 800R and 1000
  • Can-Am Commander XT 800R and 1000
  • Can-Am Commander X 1000

Model Year 2012:

  • Can-Am Commander 800R and 1000
  • Can-Am Commander XT 800R and 1000
  • Can-Am Commander X 1000
  • Can-Am Commander Limited 1000

Model Year 2013 (without Front Grill Kit):

  • Can-Am Commander 800R and 1000
  • Can-Am Commander XT 800R and 1000
  • Can-Am Commander X 1000
  • Can-Am Commander Limited 1000
  • Can-Am Commander DPS 800R and 1000

BRP reports that there were 18 reports of fires related to the recall, including one report of an operator who received minor burns on the hand.

BRP says consumers should immediately stop using the recalled vehicles, check their exhaust for accumulated debris as described in the Cleaning Procedure of Exhaust Area guide and contact a BRP dealer to schedule a free update kit repair.

The guide is available to consumers at their local BRP dealer or online at can-am.brp.com. BRP has notified registered consumers directly about this recall and the vehicle’s cleaning guide.
