Polaris Industries of Medina, Minn., is recalling about 1,300 model year 2018 RZR XP Turbo S recreational off-highway vehicles (ROVs).
In the event of a high-speed rollover, the rollover protection structure (ROPS) can fracture, providing inadequate protection during a rollover.
The firm has received six reports of rollover protection structures fracturing during rollovers. Polaris also has received one report of an injury but does not attribute it to ROPS fractures.
This recall involves model year 2018 RZR XP Turbo S recreational off-highway vehicles (ROVs) sold in red and blue.
The recalled vehicles have “POLARIS” printed on the front grille, “POLARIS” printed beneath the doors, and “RZR” printed on the rear fenders.
The vehicle identification number (VIN) and model number can be found on a label affixed to the vehicle frame in the left front wheel well.
The ROVs, manufactured in Mexico, were sold at Polaris dealers nationwide from January 2018, through August 2018, for about $27,500.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled ROVs and contact a Polaris dealer to schedule a free repair. Polaris is contacting all registered owners directly.
