Polaris recalls 13K more off-highway vehicles for risk of fire

Another 13,000 recreational off-highway vehicles are now being recalled by Polaris, after the company found the engines can overheat, posing a fire hazard. 

In December of 2015, 2,230 vehicles were recalled for the same reason. 

The recall involves all model year 2016 Polaris RZR XP Turbo and RZR XP 4 Turbo vehicles. The Medina company issued the latest recall on Thursday after receiving 19 reports of the vehicles catching on fire. Those fires resulted in six people suffering burn injuries. 

In one instance, a fire caused by one of these RZR vehicles led to a large forest fire in Utah's American Fork Canyon. More than 15 acres burned in that fire and a young child suffered severe burns. 

If you have one of these vehicles, you should stop using it immediately and contact Polaris for a free repair.
