What’s the Problem?

This recall affects 2019 – 2020 Polaris Ranger XP 1000 & CREW XP 1000 Off-Road Vehicles, according to the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) [1].

The fuel line on affected Polaris RZRs can be misrouted above the bracket that protects the fuel line from a clutch belt failure, posing a fire hazard to consumers, CPSC said.

Affected models have 2 or 4 seats, and were sold in the following colors: black, green, white, blue, orange, sand, maroon, and camo. VIN numbers included in this recall can be found on a label affixed to the vehicle frame in the left front wheel well. The word “Polaris” is stamped on the front grille and “Ranger” is on the sides of the utility bed.

If you purchased a Polaris RZR XP Off-Road Vehicle that is affected by this recall, you should stop using it immediately and contact a Polaris dealer to schedule a free inspection and repair. This recall began on April 16, 2020.

Polaris RZR Clutch Recall

Polaris Inc. is recalling model years 2020-2021 RZR PRO XP, PRO XP4 and model year 2021 RZR Turbo S, Turbo S4, XP Turbo, and XP 4 Turbo ROVs which were sold with defective clutches that can fail during use [2], posing an injury hazard. “Polaris has received 136 reports of clutch failure, including 8 reports of debris and clutch component ejection that damaged nearby parts of the vehicle,” CPSC said. This recall began on November 19, 2020.

Class Action Lawsuit Filed Against Polaris Over Roll Cage Safety

A class action lawsuit was filed against Polaris, Inc., in August 2022 alleging that the company misrepresented the safety of the roll cages on the majority of their RZR and Ranger vehicles.

Plaintiffs Jeremy Albright and Paul Guzman claim that Polaris falsely represented the strength of the roll cages of their UTVs through the use of an old loophole that permits manufacturers to “adopt” voluntary guidelines from manufacturer-controlled interest groups.

Instead of implementing the updated roof strength tests for automobiles requiring vehicle roofs to withstand 3 times their gross vehicle weight, Polaris adopted a 1972 standard for farm tractors, then failed to comply with its higher strength requirement based on horsepower, according to the lawsuit. However, Polaris sold their RZR and Ranger UTVs claiming that their roofs were up to OSHA standards.

The class action lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California and is seeking to represent a class of California residents who purchased Polaris UTVs with labels stating that their roll cages met OSHA standards.

Albright and Guzman are seeking $200 million to $300 million in damages against Polaris.
