BRP U.S. of Sturtevant, Wis., is recalling about 11,000 Ski-Doo snowmobiles sold in the U.S. and Canada.
Fuel can leak from the fuel tank vent onto hot components when the snowmobiles are on a tilt or flipped over, posing a fire hazard.
The company has received five reports of fires related to fuel leaking. No injuries have been reported.
This recall involves Ski-Doo 2020, 2021, and 2022 Expedition LE, SE, and SWT snowmobiles with a 900 ACE turbo engine sold in a variety of colors.
Ski-Doo and the model name are printed on the side panels of the vehicles. The vehicle identification number (VIN) is on the decal located on the right-hand side of tunnel underneath the seat. A list of the recalled models may be found here.
The snowmobiles, manufactured in Canada, were sold at Ski-Doo dealers nationwide from June 2019, through January 2022, for between $17,000 and $19,000.
What to do
Consumers should stop using the recalled snowmobiles immediately and contact a Ski-Doo dealer for a free repair.
BRP is contacting all known purchasers directly to coordinate the free repair so dealers can change the routing and the exit location of the fuel tank vent. A protective plate will also be installed.
Consumers may contact BRP toll-free at (888) 272-9222 from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. (ET) Monday through Sunday or online for more information.
