The vehicle may suddenly lose engine power and headlights

Textron Specialized Vehicles of Augusta, Ga., is recalling about 2,300 Arctic Cat Alterra 600 and Tracker 600 All-Terrain Vehicles (ATVs) sold in the U.S. and Canada.

A fuse in the ATV’s electrical system can fail during operation. This can result in a sudden loss of engine power and headlights, posing a crash hazard.

The firm has received five reports of fuses blowing while a vehicle was in use. No accidents or injuries have been reported.

The Arctic Cat Alterra 600 ATVs were sold in various colors, including green, gray, and fossil (tan).

The Tracker 600 vehicles were sold in various colors, including red, white, STRATA Camo, and gray. The Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) is located on the front right-hand frame tube beside the right-hand shock.
