Polaris Industries of Medina, Minn., is recalling about 28,000 model year 2019 - 2020 Ranger XP 1000 & model year 2020 General XP 1000 Utility Vehicles (UTVs) in the U.S., and Canada.

The throttle can fail to return to the idle position after the engine stalls and is restarted in gear without switching the key to the off position due to a software problem, causing the vehicle to accelerate suddenly, posing a crash hazard to the user.

No incidents or injuries are reported.

This recall involves model year 2019 Polaris Ranger XP 1000 EPS, Ranger CREW XP 1000, and model year 2020 Polaris Ranger XP 1000, Ranger CREW XP 1000, General XP 1000 Deluxe and General XP 4 1000 Deluxe.

The vehicles were sold in gray, blue, white, red, green camo, orange, sand and maroon, and have two or four seats.

“POLARIS” is stamped on the front grille and “Ranger” or “General” is printed on the sides of the rear cargo area. Vehicle identification numbers (VIN) included in this recall can be found stamped into the left rear vehicle frame below the cargo box.

The following model names are included in this recall:
