Polaris Ranger ROV Recall Issued Due to Fire Hazard

Roughly 43,000 Polaris recreational off-highway vehicles are being recalled following several reports that suggest the ROVs may overheat and catch on fire, posing an injury and burn hazard for riders. 

The Polaris Ranger 570 recall was announced by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) on June 28, following at least seven reports of the vehicles overheating and catching fire during use. To date, no injuries have been reported.

The vehicles reportedly burst into flames during heavy engine loading, slow-speed intermittent use and high outdoor temperatures. The cause of the overheating and fires has not been definitively determined, and customers are being asked to stop using the vehicles for any purpose.
