Recall: American Honda ATVs Due to Crash Hazard

By Los Angeles Personal Injury Lawyer on February 21, 2012

According to news sources, a recall has been issued for All-Terrain Vehicle (ATV) due to a crash hazard arising from a faulty weld on the ATV’s front right suspension arm, which can cause the rider to lose control if separated.

The company, American Honda Motor Company, announced the recall of about 2,900 units of the ATV’s. The recalled models include TRX420TE with associated VIN range 1HFTE344* C4500841 thru C4502580, as well as model TRX420TM with VIN ranges 1HFTE340* C4500542 thru C4501681. There have been four reported incidents of the weld failing, with one case involving injury to the rider.

The recalled ATV’s have a retail price ranging between $5,100 to $5,300.

Those with the recalled ATV models should stop using them immediately and contact their local dealer for a repair of the faulty weld, free of charge. Consumers with additional questions or concerns may also contact the company at (866) 784-1870.

As a personal injury lawyer Riverside, I’ve seen recalls of this kind in the past and know the severity of the hazards they entail. I hope this information can help raise awareness about this recalled product. If you or a loved one has been injured through the use or consumption of a defective product, speak with a San Bernardino personal injury attorney to learn about the legal options available to you.
