PostSubject: Polaris Recall   Mon Oct 05, 2015 8:11 pm

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (October 05, 2015) — Polaris Industries (NYSE: PII), in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission  and Transport Canada, is issuing a voluntary recall on model year 2015 Polaris RZR 900 and 1000 vehicles due to reports of pinched fuel tank vent lines.  The recall is related to the vehicle’s fuel tank vent line potentially being incorrectly installed during manufacturing, causing it to become pinched, which may cause the fuel tank to pressurize and leak fuel, posing a potential fire hazard.  Polaris estimates that the assembly error occurred in very few vehicles; however, Polaris is issuing a voluntary recall so that all these vehicles could be inspected and any affected vent lines fixed prior to further use.



Polaris is taking this action after confirming that, in some reports, a vent line had been pinched during assembly.  In those cases, Polaris has also received reports of the driveline contacting a pressurized and expanded fuel tank, resulting in a fuel leak and a fire hazard.  Polaris also received two reports of small fires, but could not confirm whether the vent line was obstructed during assembly or during subsequent accessory installation or whether the pinched vent line was the cause of the fires.



“Polaris is committed to the safety and quality of its products and is swiftly addressing the potential problem and has taken the appropriate steps to prevent any future occurrences,” said Michael Erickson, Polaris’ General Manager, RZR.



Polaris is sending a recall letter directly to each registered owner of a vehicle within the scope of this recall.   All 2015 Polaris RZR 900 and 1000 vehicle owners will be asked to contact a dealer starting Oct. 5 to schedule a service appointment.  There will be no cost to customers or dealers for this product inspection and fix.



Additionally, the company will provide information on the issue at Polaris Camp RZR in Glamis, Calif., Oct. 30 — 31, 2015.

Did you catch the BS Polaris said about "safety and quality of its products". That word, quality, is a flat out lie. Polaris is not recalling or admitting the non quality of these same machines having the stator's continuing to go out. Guess that is because it is safe to be miles & hours away from your camp or trailer and have that part go out again and again. Glad to see Yamaha get in the game. Hope they don't fall short on quality too just to take our money for us to have some fun.
