Oreion Motors is recalling certain model year 2011-2013 Reeper low speed vehicles. The affected vehicles may exceed the maximum permitted speed of 25 mph.

Additionally, the recalled Reeper vehicles are not equipped with red reflectors on the rear of the vehicle. Thus, these vehicles fail to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 500, 'Low Speed Vehicles.' The Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) of the recalled vehicles was incorrectly listed on the certification label which is a violation of Part 567, 'Certification.'

Ungoverned speed, missing rear reflectors, and an incorrect GVWR all increase the risk of a crash.

Oreion Motors will notify the owners of all affected Reeper vehicles, and mail them reflectors and new certification labels. Dealers will install a revised speed limiter free of charge.
