Polaris Recalls Tens Of Thousands Of Snowmobiles Due To Defective Fuel Hose

Nearly 60,000 Polaris snowmobiles have been recalled due to a risk the fuel hose may disengage, potentially exposing riders to a risk of serious injury if the snowmobile catches on fire after coming in contact with an ignition source.

The Polaris snowmobile recall was announced by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) on July 16, after problems were identified with the fuel hose, which may not have been improperly secured during the assembly process.

To date, the manufacturer and the CPSC have become aware of at least 13 consumer reports indicating the fuel hoses disconnected. No injuries or fires have been reported.

The recall includes an estimated 57,300 model year 2015 through 2020 600cc and 800cc AXYS Trail Performance and Crossover snowmobiles sold under the model names Rush, Switchback, RMK, Voyageur, and Indy, which are printed on both sides of the hood and on the side panels of the vehicles.

The recalled snowmobiles were manufactured in the United States by Polaris Industries Inc., of Medina, Minnesota. They were distributed for sale to licensed Polaris dealers nationwide from December 2013 through April 2020 for between $7,400 and $15,100.

According to Polaris, an estimated 41,200 impacted models were distributed throughout the U.S., while another 16,000 units were sold in Canada.

Customers are being asked to stop using the recalled snowmobiles immediately until they are repaired. Polaris will begin notifying customers of the recall and will provide instructions on how to schedule a free inspection at their local dealer, where dealers will be instructed to inspect and replace as necessary the fuel line.

Customers with additional questions or concerns regarding the recall are encouraged to contact Polaris at 800-765-2747 and reference the recall campaign number 20-764.
