“Deere & Company has received four reports of speedometers malfunctioning,” CPSC said. “No injuries have been reported.”

The serial number is located on the frame on the rear of the machine above the hitch and begins with 1M0590. The recalled UTVs were sold in green and yellow, olive drab, and camouflage, and have 4-wheel suspension with side-by-side seating for 2 or 4 people.

The recalled Gator UTVs were sold at John Deere dealers nationwide from October 2020 through April 2021 for between $11,100 and $14,100.

If you purchased a Gator UTV that is affected by this recall, you should stop using it immediately and contact an authorized John Deere dealer for a free software update.

This recall began on May 20, 2021.

John Deer Gator Brakes Lawsuit

A January 2022 lawsuit filed in Louisiana alleged that Plaintiff Parish Tillman was riding aboard a John Deere Gator utility vehicle driven by Matt Marin, when Marin crashed into a tree due to the brakes going out on the Gator, causing severe personal injury to Tillman.

Tillman suffered catastrophic leg injury, pain and suffering, mental anguish, and other issues, according to the lawsuit.

Plaintiff is seeking compensation for damages, legal interest, cost of proceedings, and general and equitable relief against John Deere Construction and Matt Marin.

The lawsuit was originally filed in Tangipahoa District Court and later removed to New Orleans federal court.

The complaint cites damages including failure to warn, design defect, and negligence.
