The clutch can fracture, causing fires and injuries

Polaris is recalling 27,300 off-road vehicles because of potential fire and injury hazards. The recall includes the 2021 RZR XP Turbo and Turbo S recreational models.

The company warns the vehicles’ clutch can fracture, causing fragments to be ejected from the vehicle. It says that could pose a fire danger as well as cause injuries.

The firm has received 206 reports of clutch failures, including reports of six fires, two injuries, and one vehicle tip-over.

 The recalled vehicles were sold in the following colors: black, blue, gray, lime, orange, and sand. The recalled vehicles were sold in two and four-seat configurations. POLARIS is stamped on the front grille and POLARIS and RZR are printed on the sides of the vehicles. The model name is also printed on the side of the chassis. The VIN is located on the vehicle’s frame in the left rear wheel well.
