What’s the Problem?

According to the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) [1], this recall affects Textron Prowler Pro, Prowler Pro Crew, Tracker 800SX, and Tracker 800SX Crew utility vehicles from model year 2022 and 2023.

The recalled Textron UTVs were sold in green, gray, red, fossil, and timber. “Prowler” or “Tracker” is stamped on the side of the cargo box. The 10th digit of the VIN, which is printed on the operator side of the frame under the cargo box, includes an “N” for model year 2022 and a “P” for model year 2023.

The fuel tank cap does not fit correctly, causing a fuel leak around the filler neck, posing a fire hazard, CPSC said. The firm has received 48 reports of incidents of fuel leakage around the cap.

The recalled Textron UTVs were sold at Arctic Cat and Tracker dealers nationwide, including Bass Pro Shops, Cabela’s, and independent dealerships from April 2021 through September 2023 for between $14,000 and $22,000.

If you purchased a Textron UTV that is affected by this recall, you should stop using it immediately and contact an authorized dealer for a free inspection and repair.

This recall began on May 9, 2024.

The Recall Number for this item 24-229.

OHV Recall Analysis: Increasing Number of OHVs Pulled from Market Due to Safety Concerns

According to an analysis by the Consumer Federation of America (CFA), off-highway vehicle (OHV) recalls revealed a significant increase in recall incidents over the years [2]. From January 2010 through July 14, 2023, there have been 175 recalls involving OHVs, which include all-terrain vehicles (ATVs), recreational off-highway vehicles (ROVs), and utility task vehicles (UTVs). The annual recall numbers have risen sharply, from just two recalls in 2010 to 21 in 2022, with 11 already recorded in the first half of 2023.

The CFA’s study, based on reports from the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), also highlighted that 31 different brands were affected by these recalls. Notably, Polaris was identified as having the highest number of recalls, more than three times the amount of the brand with the second highest number.

During the period in question, there were at least 86 injuries and two fatalities associated with recalled OHVs. Furthermore, it is estimated that over two million OHVs that were later recalled had been sold, pointing to a significant impact on consumer safety and product reliability.
