The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission reports that Polaris is recalling all model year 2014-17 Phoenix 200 ATVs due to a crash hazard.
Manufactured by Aeon Motor Co. of Taiwan and sold at Polaris dealerships in the U.S. from July 2013 through April 2018 for about $3,600, the number of ATVs affected is about 5,600. The throttle limiter can fail due to damage during shipping, posing a crash hazard.
This recall involves all model year 2014 through 2017 Phoenix 200 all-terrain vehicles. “Polaris” is stamped on the front grill and on the sides of the ATV seats, and “Phoenix 200” is stamped on the side panels. The ATVs were sold in blue and gray. Model numbers A14PB20AF, A15YAP20AF, A16YAP20AF and A17YAP20A8 are included in this recall. The model number is located on the vehicle frame.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled ATVs and contact Polaris for instructions on how to inspect for a damaged throttle limiter, and, if damaged, to schedule a free repair.
Polaris has received nine reports of a damaged throttle limiter, including one report of throttle limiter failure that resulted in minor injuries.
