Deere & Company of Moline, Ill., is recalling about 90 John Deere XUV590 and XUV590 S4 Gator utility vehicles.
An error in the Engine Control Unit(ECU) software can result in the speedometer and several speed-related safety systems not functioning as designed, posing a crash hazard and risk of injury.
The firm has received four reports of speedometers malfunctioning. No injuries have been reported.
This recall involves John Deere Gator utility vehicles with model number “XUV590” or “XUV590 S4” printed on the hood. “John Deere” and “Gator” are printed on the cargo box.
The recalled utility vehicles were sold in green and yellow, olive drab, and camouflage, and have four-wheel suspension with side-by-side seating for two or four people.
The serial number is located on the frame on the rear of the machine above the hitch and begins with 1M0590.
