"The throttle cable can freeze at low ambient temperatures, resulting in a stuck throttle which can cause the brakes to fail to stop the vehicle, posing a crash hazard," CPSC said. "Additionally, on certain Model Year 2022 Intimidator GC1K vehicles, the onboard software does not prevent consumers from exceeding 15 mph when the seatbelt is disengaged, posing a crash hazard. Intimidator has received 393 reports of throttle cables freezing, including four reports of crashes resulting in bruises."

Intimidator and Mahindra is displayed on the front grill and the model series is printed on the rear-side panels of the recalled UTVs. The vehicle identification number (VIN) can be found on a label inside the glove box, inside the hood compartment and below the driver’s seat. The serial numbers of affected Intimidator vehicles are available at www.intimidatorutv.com/recall/.

The recalled UTVs were sold at Intimidator and Mahindra authorized dealers nationwide from August 2013 through February 2022 for between $11,000 and $21,500.

If you purchased a UTV that is affected by this recall, you should stop using it and contact an Intimidator or Mahindra authorized dealer in a timely manner to schedule a free repair and to receive a software update/fix for the speed limiter.

This recall began on June 9, 2022.
