The Polaris recall affects 18,400 ATVs sold in the U.S. and an additional 500 sold in Canada. According to the Nov. 19 recall notice issued through the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), “the vehicle’s clutch can fail, posing an injury hazard.” While no injuries have been reported yet, Polaris has received 136 reports of ATV clutches failing and eight reports of parts of the clutch and other debris being ejected from the vehicle, resulting in damage to the ATV.
Included in the recall are Polaris’ 2020-2021 RZR PRO XP and PRO XP4 models and 2021 RZR Turbo S, Turbo S4, XP Turbo and XP 4 Turbo ROV models. The ATVs in question were sold at Polaris retailers between Mar. 2019 and Oct. 2020 for between $18,600 and $32,300. Anyone with an affected vehicle will be notified by the company, but in the meantime, Polaris says, “consumers should immediately stop using the recalled vehicles and contact a Polaris dealer to schedule a free inspection and repair.” If you want to keep yourself safe, read on to find out which other products have been pulled from the market recently.
