Polaris is recalling thousands of snowmobiles because they pose a fire hazard, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced.

snowmobile web 375x210 Polaris recalls snowmobiles due to fire hazardPolaris had issued a “Stop Sale, Stop Ride” order on the snowmobiles on April 14, 2020, following notification to the CPSC. The company also updated its posting to reflect this change. On July 16, 2020, Polaris announced the voluntary recall in cooperation with CPSC.

The recall involves model years 2015 to 2020 of the 600cc and 800cc AXYS Trail Performance and Crossover snowmobiles. The recall includes the model names Rush, Switchback, RMK, Voyageur, and Indy. The vehicles were purchased from Polaris dealers across the country from December 2013 to April 2020 for between $7,400 and $15,100.

The issue involves the fuel hose, which if improperly secured can pose a fire hazard to consumers. Polaris has received 13 reports of the fuel hoses being improperly secured. To date, no fires or injuries have been reported.

Consumers with affected Polaris snowmobiles should stop using them immediately and contact a Polaris dealer to schedule a free inspection and, if needed, a free repair. Consumers with questions can call Polaris at 800-765-2747, or online at www.polaris.com and click on Product Safety Announcements for more information. You can also check your vehicle identification number (VIN) on the “Product Safety Recalls” page to see if your vehicle is included in any recalls.

About 41,200 snowmobiles affected by the recall were sold in the United States. An additional 16,100 units were sold in Canada. A full list of affected vehicles can be found on the CPSC website.

I never dreamed how much this would mean to me

I received another check today, much to my surprise. Thank you, thank you, thank you! I never dreamed how much this would mean to me in my golden years, as I have had hearing problems for years and needed to update my hearing aids, but with a limited income, found that was impossible. I now have the best hearing aids that I have ever had, thanks to you fighting so hard on my behalf.
