Polaris recall

4 posts in this topic

From the Startribune;

Polaris Industries Inc. said Tuesday it is recalling about 133,000 RZR 900 and 1000 off-road vehicles it has made since 2013, citing reports of fire risk.

The company said it does not expect the recall to affect its financial performance.

In an announcement with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, Polaris said owners of the off-road vehicles will be asked to contact a dealer for a free appointment to replace some parts.

Polaris has received more than 160 reports of fire involving the models, including 19 injuries and one death, the product safety commission said.

Some of the same vehicles were recalled last October because of a hazard with a fuel vent line. And later in the year, Polaris recalled some RZR XP Turbo vehicles that were sold from September to November to fix an oil drain line that also posed a fire risk.

Polaris said it has implemented a “corrective action plan” and updated its factory processes on newer versions of the RZR vehicle. The company also added warnings that tell riders not to carry fuel and other flammable liquids in their vehicles.

“We have been proactive, aggressive and thorough in putting forth a plan to get our vehicles repaired and give us, and our customers, confidence in the safety of our RZR vehicles,” Scott Wine, chief executive of Polaris, said in a statement.

Typical Polaris quality. I owned a RZR for a few years and yeah,it was fun but quality for the price they charge was low.

I don't miss it at all
