Polaris Industries of Medina, Minn., is recalling about 107,000 model year 2014-2018 Polaris RZR XP 1000 recreational off-highway vehicles (ROVs).
If the exhaust silencer fatigues and cracks, the heat shield may not manage heat, which may lead to melting of nearby components or fire.
The company has received 30 reports of cracked exhaust silencers, including 3 reports of fire. No injuries have been reported.
This recall involves Model Year 2014-18 Polaris RZR XP 1000 ROVs.
The ROVs have “POLARIS” stamped on the front and back grilles, and “Polaris,” “RZR,” “1000,” & “XP” stickers on the side panels.
The Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) can be found on the right rear frame of the vehicle, to the rear of the engine. The full list of affected models can be found on the CSPC's website here.
