PhotoPolaris Industries of Medina, Minn., is recalling about 1,600 GENERAL recreational off-highway vehicles (ROVs).

Inconsistent tire pressure information can result in improperly-inflated tires, posing a crash hazard.

The GENERAL Base was sold in red and the GENERAL Hunter was sold in camo. “Polaris” is printed on the front grill, “GENERAL” is printed on the rear panel and “1000” is printed on the front panel.

The VIN is printed on the left rear vehicle frame below the cargo box.

The ROVs, manufactured in the U.S. and Mexico, were sold at Polaris dealers nationwide from June 2016, through July 2017, for between $16,300 and $19,000.
