As great as the news is that Yamaha has decided to admit some of there design flaws and offered to correct some of the problems IT’S NOT OVER YET! Yes, some of the problems are being fixed but the Rhino’s still have inadequate seatbelts that DO NOT hold an occupant in securely and the roll bar remains unpadded I am optimistic that these issues can be resolved going forward. I am also hoping that this “Repair Program” that Yamaha is offering actually reaches Rhino owners and they have the information they need to fix their machine because if owners don’t know to get them fixed or choose not to, their machine remains a ticking time bomb and it’s only a matter of time before the un-repaired Rhino kills again. Mentioned in the CPSC report, and under reported in my opinion, was this advice: CONSUMERS SHOULD IMMEDIATELY STOP USING THESE POPULAR RECREATIONAL VEHICLES UNTIL THE REPAIR IS INSTALLED BY A DEALER. Please heed this warning if you own a Yamaha Rhino because it is families like mine that know all to well the dangers of an unstable Rhino! It is a bittersweet triumph for our families because it is too late to save our children but I do feel some comfort in knowing that their precious lives have affected this world in a positive way and that going forward lives have been saved through these losses. I know my son J.T. Crow would be proud to have his life linked to this victory.
