The recall includes an additional 560 vehicles that were sold in Canada (CPSC Recall Notice, No. 21-709, November 19, 2020).

Incidents and injuries. Polaris has received 136 reports of clutch failure, including eight reports of debris and clutch component ejection that damaged nearby parts of the vehicle. No injuries have been reported.

Product description. This recall involves Model Year 2020 RZR PRO XP and RZR PRO XP 4 and Model Year 2021 RZR PRO XP, RZR PRO XP 4, RZR Turbo S, RZR Turbo S 4, RZR XP Turbo, and RZR XP 4 Turbo recreational off-highway vehicles. The two- or four-seat vehicles were sold in the following colors: black, blue, gray, lime (green), sand (light brown), orange, red, titanium (silver), and white. POLARIS is stamped on the front grille and POLARIS and RZR are printed on the sides of the vehicles.

The recalled vehicles were manufactured in Mexico and were sold at Polaris dealers nationwide from March 2019 through October 2020 for between $18,600 and $32,300.

Remedy. Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled vehicles and contact a Polaris dealer to schedule a free inspection and repair. Polaris is notifying all dealers and contacting registered owners directly.

Important CPSC Recall Remedy Notice Due to COVID-19. CPSC is advising consumers that because of the extraordinary circumstances surrounding COVID-19, some of the remedies identified in recall notices may not be currently available.
