Dear John Deere Customer:

This notice is being provided to you in accordance with the requirements of the Consumer Product Safety Act and other applicable laws.

What is the reason for this notice?
In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, John Deere Worldwide Commercial and Consumer Equipment Division is voluntarily recalling John Deere Buck and Trail Buck Utility All-Terrain Vehicles.

What is the potential problem?
The front brake hose, on either side of the vehicle, could be pulled out of its retaining bracket by debris, when operating the vehicle. This could cause the brake hose to wear against the inner wheel and/or shock absorber spring seat, resulting in a loss of brake fluid and a complete loss of front braking ability. If this occurs, it will lead to an increase in the braking distance and possible collision with bystanders, a fixed object or another vehicle resulting in possible injury or death.

What should you do?
Contact an authorized John Deere UATV Dealer and make an appointment to have your vehicle repaired. This work will be performed at no charge to you. For you safety, please stop using your vehicle until repair is performed.

If you have any questions, please contact the Customer Contact Center at 1-800-537-8233.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you. Thank you for you immediate attention to this matter.

I think you are right Sixchows. I don't remember the exact date they hit the market, but it wasn't too long ago.
