About 19,500 All-Terrain Vehicles have been recalled by American Honda Motor Co. Inc., of Torrance, Calif. A weld on the ATV’s front right and left upper suspension arms can separate, causing the driver to lose control of the vehicle, posing a crash hazard. Honda says it’s aware of ten incidents of suspension arm weld failures, including one in which a rider suffered a sprained wrist. The recalled vehicles are two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive 2012 Honda FourTrax Rancher ATV TRX420 FA, FE, FM, FPA, FPE, FPM, TE and TM models. The ATVs are red, green or camouflage and have the word “Honda” and the Honda wing logo on both sides of the fuel tank. The word “Rancher” is on the front cowl below the handlebars and on the left rear fender. The model number is visible on the right front frame down pipe above the driver’s right-hand side front wheel. The VIN is located on the top center front of the frame and is visible looking down between the bars of the gear rack and through the middle opening of the front fairing.
The ATV’s were sold at Honda ATV dealers nationwide from September 2011 to November 2012 for between $5,100 and $7,600. Consumers should immediately stop using these ATVs and contact their Honda ATV dealer to schedule a free repair. American Honda is contacting its customers directly.
