WASHINGTON (AP) -- American Honda Motor Co. is recalling about 200,000 all-terrain vehicles after receiving more than two dozen reports of steering rods separating, which could cause drivers to crash.

The Torrance, Calif., company has not received any injury reports related to its 2004 and 2005 FourTrax ATVs, the Consumer Product Safety Commission said Thursday.

Honda motorcycle dealers nationwide sold the ATVs, which were made in the United States and came in red, olive, yellow or blue, from August 2003 to February 2005 for $3,600 to $8,000.

Recalled model numbers: --2005 TRX250TE/TM --2004-2005 TRX350FE/FM/TE/TM --2004-2005 TRX400FA/FGA --2005 TRX500FE/FM/TM --2005 TRX500FA/FGA --2005 TRX650FA/FGA

Consumers are urged to stop riding the ATVs. The company will directly contact registered owners and provide free repair, the CPSC said. More information is available by calling Honda at 866-784-1870, weekdays 11:30 a.m.-8 p.m. EDT. (Copyright 2005 by The Associated Press. All Rights Reserved.)
