WASHINGTON, D.C. - Honda is recalling about 21,000 FourTrax ATVs because of a concern that the steering shaft can break off suddenly and cause a crash.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced the recall Oct. 29, saying Honda has received 18 reports of the ATVs’ steering shaft breaking, including two in which the riders were involved in a crash. No injuries have been reported.

The recall covers eight 2012 and 2013 FourTrax models made in the U.S. by American Honda Motor Co. and sold from May 2011 through September 2013. They list for between $6,900 and $7,900.

Consumers are advised to stop using the vehicles and contact Honda dealers for repairs.
