Wildfire Motors is a vehicle company based out of Steubenville, Ohio. They sell scooters, motorcycles, ATVs and dirt bikes. Some of their vehicles are road-ready, too, but that doesn’t mean anyone should drive their three-wheel offerings.
Last week, the company recalled 202 WF650-C vehicles that were built between April 2008 and January 2009 because of a lack of a label to alert owners to maintain their brake systems. The WF650-C only has one brake fluid reservoir instead of the typical two, and no warning lamps that would indicate a brake failure.
The possibility of a brake failure is greater in vehicles with fewer reservoirs, and a leak in the reservoir could cause the entire system to fail suddenly. Which, when you look at the WF650-C, wouldn’t be the worst thing to happen to the car (ie; the system failing):
Absolutely hideous, no? Wildfire produces another of these three-wheeled gems called the Snyder, too, that are free:
Can’t go wrong with free.
These vehicles might be optical illusions because they look like they can topple over if passengers overload one side of the car. Especially the first one above that looks like a three-legged minivan.
The truck above is carrying all four that sold in 2011. They seem fake and make my head hurt.
