American Suzuki Motor Corp., Brea, Calif., is recalling about 300 of its 2006 model year Eiger ATVs.
The company says the mounting brackets used to secure the left-front suspension arm to the ATV frame may not have been welded completely and could break off during riding. If this occurs the rider could lose control of the ATV and crash, posing a risk of serious injury or death. No incidents or injuries have been reported.
Only Suzuki 2006 model year LT-A400K6, LT-A400FK6 and LT-F400FK6 ATVs with certain vehicle identification numbers are included in this recall.
Manufactured in the United States, the units were sold at Suzuki ATV dealerships nationwide from May 2006 through July 2006 for about $4,500 for the LT-A400K6, $5,300 for the LT-A400FK6 and $5,200 for the LT-F400FK6.
Consumers are asked to stop using these vehicles immediately and to contact their local Suzuki ATV dealer to schedule an appointment for a free repair. Consumers with the recalled ATVs are being sent direct notices from Suzuki.
