Honda ATV involved in the Recall - CPSC

(Best Syndication News) - American Honda Motor Company announced a voluntary recall for two model numbers of their All Terrain Vehicle (ATV) because the weld that holds the upper suspension arm could come apart causing the driver to lose control and possibly crashing.

Around 2,900 ATV’s are involved in the recall and were sold nationwide at Honda ATV dealers between September 2011 and January 2012 at a price range of $5,100 and $5,300. The company received four reports of the suspension arms separating and one incident of the driver sustaining a sprained wrist.

The 2012 Honda FourTrax Rancher ATV model numbers TRX420TE and TRX420TM are involved. They come in either red or green colors and have “Honda” displayed on both sides of the fuel tank and “Rancher” is displayed between the handlebars and on the left rear fender.

The following VIN number ranges are involved:

Model - TRX420TE VIN number range 1HFTE344* C4500841 thru C4502580
Model - TRX420TM VIN number range 1HFTE340* C4500542 thru C4501681

The * in the VIN number means that it is a random alphanumeric identifier of either number "0-9" or the letter "X".

Consumers who have the recalled ATV should stop using it until they can get the free repair completed at an authorized Honda ATV dealer. They can also contact the Honda ATV dealer about scheduling the repair. Consumers can also contact American Honda between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. PT Monday through Friday toll-free at (866) 784-1870 or visit the American Honda's website at http://powersports.honda.com.
