This is a class action suit against a company alleging that it designs and sells certain ATVs that are defective, and therefore, prone to catch fire. It is alleged that the liquid cooling system found on ATVs of this model are prone to leaks due to their novel design, and that a gradual loss of cooling fluid during operation causes dangerous accumulation of heat in the engine components.
