“The snowmobile’s muffler can overheat and cause the upper right-hand vent grill to melt and drip plastic on the exhaust, posing a fire hazard,” CPSC said. “BRP has received 10 reports of overheating mufflers, including three incidents that resulted in fires.”
Ski-Doo and the model name are printed on the side panels of the vehicles. The vehicle identification number (VIN) is on the decal located on the right-hand side of tunnel.
The recalled snowmobiles were sold at Ski-Doo dealers nationwide from August 18, 2020 through March 18, 2021 for between $8,000 and $11,000.
If you purchased a snowmobile that is affected by this recall, you should stop using it immediately and contact a Ski-Doo dealer for a free repair.
