American Honda’s FourTrax All-Terrain Vehicle recall announced -CPSC

(Best Syndication News) - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced the voluntary recall of American Honda’s FourTrax All-Terrain Vehicle (ATV). The recall was announced to repair a weld that could come apart on the ATV’s front right and left upper suspension arms. If the weld separates, the driver could lose control of the ATV and potentially crash.

American Honda knows of 10 reports of the ATVs’ suspension arm weld breaking. One report caused the rider to sprain their wrist.

Around 19,500 of the American Honda FourTrax All-Terrain Vehicles (ATV) are involved in the recall. This is an expanded recall, which includes ATVs that were previously recalled in February 2012. The recalled units were sold at Honda ATV dealers nationwide between September 2011 and November 2012. They retailed between $5,100 and $7,600.

The two-wheel and four-wheel drive versions of the 2012 Honda FourTrax Rancher ATV with the model numbers TRX420 FA, FE, FM, FPA, FPE, FPM, TE and TM are involved in this recall. To locate the model number, look on the right front frame above the front wheel. The units came in red, green, or camouflage colors, and have the word “Honda” with the company’s wing logo painted on both sides of the fuel tank.

The word “Rancher” is displayed on the front of the ATV under the handlebars, and on the left rear fender. The VIN numbers being recalled are listed below. The VIN is found by looking down between the bars of the gear rack; the VIN can also be seen by looking through the middle opening of the front fairing.

Consumers who have the recalled ATVs should not use them until they can get a free repair completed at their local Honda ATV dealer. Consumers should contact their ATV dealer or they can contact American Honda toll-free at 866) 784-1870, from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. PT Monday through Friday.
