Motorcycles Recalled Due to Crash Hazard
Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC
Suzuki motorcycles are being recalled for possible engine stalling and crashes. The motorcycles
are 2012-2016 model year DL650 which were manufactured from August 30,
2011, through October 12, 2015. The Suzuki Motor of American, Inc. reported
that the alternator stator might not receive sufficient heat resistance
which can result in a short circuit of the stator wires, meaning the engine
can stall and cause a crash. Suzuki will notify owners, and dealers will
be replacing the affected part free of charge. The company urges owners
to contact their customer service number, the National Highway Traffic
Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline or www.safercar.gov.
Product liability laws were established to help protect consumers against
defective or faulty products. Companies, manufacturers, distributors,
and retailers are responsible for designing, manufacturing and selling
quality and reliable products to consumers. There are thousands of recalls
each year that put consumers in harm’s way. Most of the time companies
that are recalling a product will refund the full purchase price, replace
the recalled part or replace the product entirely. Consumers need to be
aware and diligent when it comes to faulty or defective products. These
products can cause serious injuries that can require medical attention.
If you are ever injured by a product, it’s important to contact
a product liability attorney. A skilled attorney will examine your case
and determine if you have grounds to pursue legal action.
