About 9,300 off-road buggies are being recalled by BB Buggies because of unintended acceleration issues. According to recall notice posted on the Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC), the <"http://www.yourlawyer.com/practice_areas/product_liability">Bad Boy Classic Buggies were initially recalled for repair in October 2009, but it seems the fix did not work.
The Bad Boy Classic Buggies were manufactured by Bad Boy Enterprises LLC, of Natchez, Miss, the assets of which were recently acquired by BB Buggies.
At the time of the 2009 recall, which included 3,900 vehicles, there had been 32 reports of unintended acceleration, including reports of injuries such as a fractured toe, rotator cuff injury and sore muscles. Since that recall was issued, BB Buggies has received 27 additional reports of unexpected acceleration, including reports of arm and leg fractures.
This expanded recall involves all Bad Boy Classic model off-road utility vehicles manufactured from early 2003 through May 2010. Bad Boy Buggy Classic models come in camouflage patterns, hunter green, red and black colors. The XT model is not included in this recall.
The recalled off-road buggies were sold by authorized dealers nationwide from Spring 2003 through June 2010 for about $10,000.
The CPSC says consumers should immediately stop using the buggies and contact their BB Buggies dealer to schedule a free repair.
