Polaris is recalling more vehicles after receiving 30 reports of fuel leaks and four incidents involving a fire. The Minnesota powersports leader said the recall involves more than 25,000 2014 Polaris Sportsman 570 all-terrain vehicles in several colors. The items in question have “Polaris” printed on the front grill and “Sportsman 570” on the side panel. “Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled ATVs and contact Polaris to schedule a free repair,” a statement said on the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission’s website. “Polaris is contacting all known purchasers directly.” No injuries have been reported in connection with the recall. The ATVs cost between $6,500 and $7,700 and were available from April 2014 to May 2017.
Polaris is also recalling all 2017 Polaris RZR 570 and RZR S 570 recreational off-highway vehicles, including RZR EPS 570 or RZR S 570 EPS vehicles with electronic power steering. The recall includes model number Z17VJE57AR in red, model number Z17VHE57AU in silver and model number Z17VHA57A2 in white. The two-seat ROVs have “Polaris” stamped on the front grill and RZR or RZR S on the side of the rear cargo. The company is initiating the recall because the front brake can detach, posing crash and injury hazards. No injuries have been reported. Polaris is offering a free repair to all known purchasers and urging consumers to stop using the vehicles, which were sold for about $8,500 from December 2016 until June 2017.
