Polaris has recently recalled over 20,000 vehicles which posed a fire hazard to consumers.
Per the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission, Polaris recalled their 2021-2023 Polaris RZR Pro XP and 2022-2023 Turbo R Recreational Off-Road vehicles on May 18, 2023. The recall occurred due to the fire hazard that the vehicles still pose to consumers. Specifically, a fuel leak can occur at the fuel pump assembly joint on the fuel tank. This leak is in close proximity to a hot surface. It, therefore, poses a severe hazard to drivers of these vehicles.
This recall represents another design concern for Polaris, as this is not the first time these vehicles have been recalled. Polaris has recalled some of its vehicles over ten times in the last five years. According to a local news report, Polaris has recalled over 300,000 vehicles in the past decade.
The fire hazard has proven deadly, as previous RZRs that have caught fire have unfortunately killed several people. Consumers of this product are asked to immediately stop using the recalled vehicles and contact Polaris to schedule a free repair.
It is important that consumers trust the product they purchase. It is concerning when a company continues to issue recalls for a product that demonstrates the same repeated flaws.
