Polaris Recalls 2016/2017 General Models
|October 31, 2017
Yesterday Polaris issued a recall of about 19,000 Polaris General models due to a faulty steering wheel shaft. The recall affects 2016/2017 2-seat and 4-seat General models. According to the recall, the steering wheel shaft can shift and detach while in use, resulting in a loss of control and crash hazard.
The side-by-side recreational off-highway vehicles were sold in black, blue, camouflage, orange, red, silver and white and have a cargo box on the back. "Polaris" is printed on the front grill, "GENERAL" is printed on the rear panel and "1000" is printed on the front panel. The VIN is printed on the left rear vehicle frame below the cargo box.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled ROVs and contact Polaris to schedule a free repair. Polaris is contacting all known purchasers directly.
Polaris has received five reports of the steering shaft separating and one report of a broken hand injury.
Polaris dealers nationwide from December 2015 through September 2015 for between $16,000 and $21,000.
Chaparral Motorsports is an authorized Polaris dealer.
