Polaris Ranger ATV Recall Issued Due to Loss of Control Risk

About 327 Polaris Ranger off-highway vehicles have been recalled due to problems with the throttle, which could cause drivers to lose control of the side-by-side ATV and increase the risk of riders suffering serious injuries in a crash.

The 2013 Polaris Ranger 400 recall was announced by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) on January 9, because the throttle can possibly fail to operate properly, jeopardizing the riders control of the vehicle. However, there have been no injuries or accidents reported in connection with the recalled Polaris Ranger ATVs.

The recall consists of 2013 Polaris Ranger 400 recreational off-highway vehicles with model number R13RH45AG, which were sold at Polaris dealers nationwide from July 2012 through September 2012 for about $8,300. The recalled vehicles were sold in green and gray in color with “Ranger 4×4” printed on the rear bed box and a “400 HO” decal on the left and right side of the hood.
