Heads up to Polaris drivers. "In the October recall, CPSC officials blamed the fire hazard on RZR’s faulty fuel tank line, which can be pinched and cause the tank to pressurize and leak fuel." ..................................... Polaris recalls 133,000 off-road vehicles after reports of fire Polaris Recalls RZR Recreational Off-Highway Vehicles Due to Fire Hazard; Severe Burn Injuries, One Death Reported After more than 100 off-road machines made by Polaris Industries unexpectedly burst into flames, killing at least one rider and injuring others, the Minnesota company announced Tuesday that it has agreed to recall 133,000 recreational off-highway vehicles. The recall is one of the largest ever announced by an off-road vehicle manufacturer, according to a Star Tribune analysis of recalls announced by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). “This is Polaris’ largest recall, and we take the matter very seriously,” Polaris said in a written response to questions from the Star Tribune. “We conducted a thorough investigation to pinpoint the root causes of fires and other thermal-related events. In consultation with [the safety commission], we developed a comprehensive corrective action plan to address them.” The models involved in the recall include some of the most popular in the Polaris portfolio: the RZR 900 and RZR 1000 recreational off-highway vehicles, or ROVs. The model years range from 2013 to 2016. A more limited recall involving 53,000 RZR machines was announced in October. Those machines are included in this week’s recall.
