John Deere Gator Utility Vehicles have been recalled because the dust boot on the throttle cable can come loose, causing the vehicle to not slow down or stop, posing a crash hazard.

The company has received two reports of dust boots coming loose, though no injuries have been reported, according to U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission recall number 17-739.

About 8,500 vehicles in the models XUV590i or XUV590i S4 are affected. They were sold between January 2016 and March 2017.
