All-Terrain Vehicles Recalled By American Honda Motor Co. Due to Risk of Loss of Control Hazard
The following product safety recall was voluntarily conducted by the firm in cooperation with the CPSC. Consumers should stop using the product immediately unless otherwise instructed.

Name of Product: Model Year 2007-2008 TRX 420 Rancher ATVs

Units: About 42,000

Manufacturer: American Honda Motor Co. Inc., of Torrance, Calif.

Hazard: If the ATV’s rubber CV (constant velocity) boots get punctured or torn the joint will become contaminated and severe binding of the CV joints could occur, resulting in the sudden loss of steering control. This poses a risk of injury or death to riders.

Incidents/Injuries: None.

Description: This recall involves Model Year 2007-08 Honda TRX420 ATVs, also known as the Honda FourTrax Rancher 4X4. These are adult-size ATVs designed for use by riders age 16 and older. The recalled ATVs are available in red, black, olive, and camouflage. The Honda name and wing logo are printed on the fuel tank. The model year is printed on a label located on the frame behind the left front wheel. The model name “Rancher” is on a label at the left rear of the ATV.

Sold by: Honda ATV dealers nationwide from January 2007 through May 2008 for between $5,300 and $5,600.

Manufactured in: United States

Remedy: Consumers should immediately stop using these recalled ATVs and contact any Honda ATV dealer to make an appointment for a free repair. Registered owners of the recalled ATVs have been sent direct notices.
