Suzuki Eiger Recall
CPSC, Suzuki Announce Recall of Four-Wheel Drive Eiger ATVs
In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, Suzuki Motor Corporation is conducting a voluntary recall of the 2003 model year four-wheel drive Eiger ATVs - models LT-A400FK3 (automatic transmission; MSRP $5299) and LT-F400FK3 (manual transmission; MSRP $5149) - sold from late August through late September, 2002. About 300 have been sold.
Your safety and continued satisfaction with Suzuki products are important to us, so if you own a 2003 four-wheel drive Eiger ATV, please read on.
Suzuki has determined that a small number of four-wheel drive Eiger ATVs were assembled with a wire harness that may have broken ground wire strands from an improperly crimped wire splice. Broken ground wire strands could result in electrical open circuits. An electrical open circuit could prevent the tail/stop lamp from illuminating or could cause the CDI-unit of the ignition to not function. If the CDI-unit does not function the engine will stop running, possibly leaving the rider stranded away from his or her base of operation. No accidents or injuries have been reported.
If you own one of the affected ATVs, your Suzuki dealer will call you to make an appointment to bring your ATV in. Your ATV will be inspected, and repaired if necessary, at no cost to you for recall service parts or labor. Eiger ATVs are designed for riders age 16 and older.
