Suzuki is recalling about 3,400 KingQuad All-Terrain Vehicles (ATV) due to the risk of a crash.

The vehicle battery can fail, causing the engine to stop running while in use. This poses a crash hazard.

The affected vehicles include model year 2016 and 2017 LT-A750X and LT-A750XP KingQuad ATVs. There are decals on the sides of the vehicles printed with Suzuki KingQuad and 4x4 750AXi. The model number is printed on a hang tag on the vehicle as well as on the owner's manual. The XP model includes power steering. The affected vehicles were sold in green, red, camouflage, and black at Suzuki ATV dealers across the country from September 2015 until November 2016 for between $8,600 and $9,600.

To date, Suzuki has received six reports of battery discharge or failure to restart, though there have been no reported injuries. Nevertheless, consumers are urged to immediately stop using the ATVs and to contact a local dealer to schedule an appointment for a free repair.

Suzuki is sending a notice to customers with recalled vehicles directly.
