American Suzuki Motor Corporation Announce Recall of 2004-2005 Vinson and 2005 KingQuad All-Terrain Vehicles (ATVs)

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.

Product: Suzuki 2004-2005 model year Vinson and 2005 KingQuad ATVs

Units: About 30,000

Hazard: Water can enter the throttle lever case and freeze, causing the throttle lever to become stuck and fail to automatically return to the idle position when the rider releases the throttle. If the throttle lever does not automatically return to the idle position when the rider releases the throttle, the ATV will not slow down as the rider expects. The rider could lose control of the ATV and an accident resulting in injury or death could occur.

Distributor: American Suzuki Motor Corp., of Brea, California

Incidents/Injuries: Suzuki has received two reported incidents of the throttle sticking. One minor injury reported.

Suzuki Vinson and KingQuad ATVs are adult-size ATVs designed for use by riders age 16 and older. Suzuki dealers sold these ATVs nationwide between July 2003 and February 2005. These ATVs are available in yellow, green, red or camouflage and have the model name (Vinson or KingQuad) on the side of the fuel tank.
