Polaris is recalling approximately 13,500 recreational off-highway vehicles (ROVs).

The vehicle engine can misfire and the temperatures of the exhaust and nearby components can get too hot and cause the components to melt, and/or a contaminated brake master cylinder may cause unintended brake drag, posing burn and fire hazards.

This recall involves model year 2016 and 2017 RZR 900, 1000, Turbo and GENERAL 1000 recreational off-road vehicles (ROVs). Polaris is printed on the front grill and RZR or GENERAL is printed on the side of the rear cargo area. The ROVs were sold in various colors.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled ROVs and contact Polaris for a free repair. Polaris is contacting all known purchasers directly, and consumers can check their VIN on the Polaris website.

The affected ROVs were sold at Polaris dealers nationwide from August 2015 through February 2017 for between $12,800 and $24,000 each.
