I received a letter from Deere today regarding our Gator which states:
Problem: The steering shaft has the potential to separate from the steering rack assembly. If this occurs, it may result in a loss of vehicle steering control.
John Deere has received reports of 9 incidents with 0 injuries.
Product: The recall involves certain John Deere XUV825, XUV825 S4, XUV855 and XUV855 S4 Crossover Gator Utility Vehicles with power steering sold from March 2012 though November 2017.
What to do: Stop using your utility vehicle and contact your local authorized John Deere dealer for a free repair.
