The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced that Suzuki is recalling about 3,400 KingQuad 750 ATVs. The ATV’s battery can fail and cause the engine to stop running while in use, posing a crash hazard.
This recall involves model year 2016 and 2017 LT-A750X and LT-A750XP KingQuad ATVs. “Suzuki KingQuad” and “4x4 750AXi” are on decals on the sides. The model number is printed on a hang tag on the ATV and on the owner’s manual. The XP model has power steering. They were sold in green, red, camouflage and black colors.
Suzuki has received six reports of battery discharge or failure to restart. No injuries have been reported.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled ATVs and contact a local Suzuki ATV dealer to schedule an appointment for a free repair. Consumers with recalled ATVs are being sent a notice directly from Suzuki.
The units were sold at Suzuki ATV dealers nationwide from September 2015 through November 2016 for between $8,600 and $9,600.
The units were manufactured by Suzuki Manufacturing of America Corporation, of Rome, Georgia, and distributed by Suzuki Motor of America, Inc., of Brea, Calif.
