Suzuki KingQuad ATV Recall Due to Fuel Leaks, Fire Hazard

Reports of fuel leaks and fires with some Suzuki KingQuad ATVs have lead to a recall for about 29,000 of the all-terrain vehicles.

The Suzuki KingQuad ATV recall was announced on March 10 by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) after American Suzuki, the manufacturer, received 19 reports of fuel leaks. There have been no injuries associated with the defective all-terrain vehicles.

The CPSC reports that the KingQuad has plastic fuel tanks, some of which were improperly manufactured. The tanks can develop a leak, which could create a fire hazard.

The ATV recall affects a number of models and model years, including:

  • 2008-2010 LT-A450X
  • 2009-2010 LT-A500X
  • 2008-2010 LT-A750X
  • 2011 LT-A500X
  • 2011 LT-A750X’s made before December 11, 2010

The model numbers are located on the lower side panels above the footrests and the words “Suzuki KingQuad” are located on either side of the fuel tank housing.

The ATVs were sold by Suzuki ATV dealers nationwide from July 2007 through February 2011 for between $6,600 and $9,500.

The CPSC recommends that consumers immediately stop using the vehicles affected by the recall and contact a Suzuki dealer to arrange for a free repair. Not all 2011 LT-A500Xs and LT-A750Xs are subject to the recall, and consumers should check with a dealership to see if their vehicle is affected.

Suzuki is sending notices to registered owners of recalled vehicles. Any customers with questions can visit the company’s website at or call 1-800-444-5077.
