Polaris issues second recall on 2015-17 Slingshots

Polaris Industries, Inc. is recalling certain 2015-17 Slingshot vehicles. The affected vehicles previously had their rear swingarms replaced during the remedy of NHTSA recall number 16V-255. The replacement swingarms may have been installed without the sealing grommets installed, potentially resulting in road debris contaminating the rear wheel speed sensor.

Contamination of the rear speed sensor will disable the ABS and traction/stability control, increasing the risk of a crash. Polaris has recalled 8,962 units due to this issue.

Polaris will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the swingarms for missing grommets, installing them as necessary, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule.

  1. I purchased my Slingshot in late December 2015 and I havent had a single issue with it yet. I take it out everyday and it has just over 20k miles. Love your site and thanks for the content!
