ATV-riding isn’t the safest sport, but consumers expect their All-Terrain-Vehicles (ATVs, fourwheelers, four-wheelers, etc.) to be engineered and manufactured with safety in mind. Most of them are, but from time to time we learn about a defective part that could cause serious injury or death to ATV riders.
The most recent such recall is by Honda, whose 2007 TRX 500 ATVs (AKA Honda Foreman and Foreman Rubicon) are at risk of a serious loss-of-control danger when water enters the throttle position sensor and freezes. This product oversight could cause the throttle to stick in the open position, which could cause seriously injure or kill riders.
If you own one of these fourwheelers you should immediately stop using it and take it to an authorized Honda ATV dealer for a free repair. For more information you can call Honda toll-free at 866-784-1870.
