Polaris Recalls More RZR XP Vehicles
More Polaris Recalls Announced
Since the industrial revolution and the advancement of mass production, products and vehicles are always at risk of getting overlooked as they make their way down the production line. Unfortunately, Polaris knows all too well that these little mistakes or issues on the production line can sting when buyers report problems with their new or used vehicles. If a problem is determined to alter the performance of a vehicle or make it unsafe to operate, recalls are then issued to the buyers to offer a free repair or upgrade on the vehicle in question. The latest recall to sting the manufacturer has to do with their top-of-the-line RZR XP models.
Here is more info (GO TO THIS PAGE on the Polaris site for more info):
Polaris has issued a stop-ride / stop-sale notice and safety bulletin for some 2019 RZR XP / XP 4 Turbo / Turbo S / Turbo S Velocity vehicles. Polaris has determined that on some of these off-road vehicles, the clutch inlet duct covers used as an aid during manufacturing may not have been removed prior to shipment, potentially resulting in a fire hazard.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled vehicles until the vehicles have been inspected and, if necessary, serviced in accordance with the applicable safety bulletin. Polaris is notifying dealers and contacting affected registered owners by mail and, if available, by email. Consumer should contact a Polaris dealer to schedule service.
Number of affected U.S. vehicles: About 2,900
Number of incidents: Five reported incidents, no reported injuries.

You might remember that back in January Polaris issues a stop ride for RZR XP Turbo S and RZR XP 4 Turbo S vehicles for a brake issue. If you haven’t completed the recall for this issue, it is now the time to get both of these checked out before you have a problem.
First, if you have one of these vehicles, click over to the recalls page (linked above) to see if your vehicle is affected by this recall. Should you have one of the vehicles, be sure to contact your local Polaris dealer so you can get your service performed. Then you’ll be ready to ride!
