Polaris is recalling approximately 51,000 Ranger 900 recreational off-highway vehicles (ROVs) due to fire and burn hazards.

A heat shield may fall off the affected vehicles, posing fire and burn hazards to riders.

The recalled vehicles include all model year 2015 Polaris Ranger XP 900, XP 900 EPS, and CREW 900 recreational off-highway vehicles. They were sold in several colors and include either three or six seats, as well as a rear box. The word Ranger can be found on the rear box, while 900 is printed on the vehicles' hood.

All 2015 Ranger 900 models and vehicle identification numbers—which are printed on the vehicle frame on the driver's side close to the rear—are included in the recall. The vehicles were sold across the country at Polaris dealers from April 2014 until March 2017 for between $13,400 and $21,300.

No injuries have been reported to Polaris, but there have been 13 incidents reported involving the ROVs, including five reports of fires. For this reason, consumers are urged to stop using the affected ROVs immediately and contact the company to arrange a free repair. The company is contacting all purchasers it knows about directly.

For more information, consumers can reach Polaris at (800) 765-2747.
