American Landmaster of Columbia City, Ind., is recalling about 1,050 American Landmaster EV, L3, L4, L5, L5W, and L7 Utility Vehicles (UTVs).

The steering shaft can separate from the joint and result in a loss of control, posing crash and injury hazards.

The company has received seven reports of the steering shaft separating. No injuries have been reported.

This recall involves American Landmaster utility vehicles series EV, L3, L4, L5, L5W, and L7, equipped with standard (non-power) steering, and manufactured between March 2021, and October 2021. They were sold in red, blue, and camouflage colors.

Landmaster and the model name appear on the frame near the front left wheel of the vehicles. The model year and date of manufacture can be found on a data plate behind the vehicle’s pedals.

The UTVs, manufactured in the U.S., were sold at American Landmaster dealers nationwide from March 2021, through October 2021, for between $7,200 and $12,700.
