The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced on December 21, 2017, that Polaris has issued a recall of certain 2018 RZR XP 4 Turbo vehicles due to a fire hazard. The return fuel line can be improperly secured which can cause fuel to leak, posing a fire hazard. The recall affects about 560 vehicles.
This recall involves Polaris model year 2018 RZR XP 4 Turbo recreational off-highway vehicle (ROVs) with seating for four. “POLARIS” is printed on the front grill, “DOHC TURBO” and “EPS” on the front fenders, “POLARIS RZR XP” on the rear fenders, “POLARIS” along the bottom edge of the passenger compartment, and “POLARIS” on the rear light assembly. The VIN is printed on the right rear frame of the vehicle.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled ROVs and contact a Polaris dealer for a free inspection and repair. Polaris is contacting all known purchasers directly.
Polaris has received one report of a fire resulting from an improperly installed return fuel line. No injuries have been reported.
The units, manufactured in Mexico, were sold at Polaris dealers nationwide from September 2017 through October 2017 for between $22,500 and $25,500.
This recall was conducted, voluntarily by the company, under CPSC’s Fast Track Recall process. Fast Track recalls are initiated by firms, who commit to work with CPSC to quickly announce the recall and remedy to protect consumers.
Federal law bars any person from selling products subject to a publicly-announced voluntary recall by a manufacturer or a mandatory recall ordered by the Commission.
