Polaris Issues Recall For RZR 900 and 1000 Over Potential FiresPosted in News on April 19, 2016
Polaris and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission are issuing a voluntary recall for certain RZR 900 and RZR 1000 off-road side-by-sides manufactured between 2013 and 2016 due to reports of fires. The recall will affect about 133,000 Polaris RZR side-by-sides, and a stop sale is in place until the issue is fixed.
An investigation into what is causing the thermal-related incidents that may lead to a fire is currently ongoing. Chairman and CEO of Polaris Industries Scott Wine says, “One of our foremost guiding principles is safety and ethics always. We know the foundation of a good ride is a safe ride, and 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.” With safety being a main concern for Polaris, affected owners will be informed and asked to contact dealers to take their RZR in for service.
Service will be scheduled based on parts availability and should only take dealers an hour to complete. Polaris has begun implementing the fix in the manufacturing process, so new models won’t be affected. Since there is a serious risk of injury, Polaris is asking that you not use your RZR until it can be repaired.
