Polaris Fined $27.25 Million by CPSC For Not Reporting Vehicle Problems

Polaris RZR Fire

The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) fined Polaris Industries $27.25 Million for failing to report defective vehicles that were at risk of catching fire. The fine is in relation to RZR and Ranger vehicles. This is in conjunction with a new recall for 107,000 Polaris RZR models from 2014 to 2018.

The manufacturer defects potentially created "an unreasonable risk of serious injury or death," according to the CPSC.

Polaris will email and direct mail to customers for more information about the recall to get free repairs.

Polaris knew some of their RZR models from 2013 to 2016 were in danger of catching fire and had received reports of 150 fires.

"Despite having this information," the agency said, "Polaris failed to immediately notify CPSC of the defect or risk posed by the off-road vehicles as required by federal law."

I took my 2014 Polaris Razor to the Dealer after they installed one of their “RECALLS” because you can not touch the wall between the cab and the engine it was so hot. After they had it for about a week I called them and asked what they where doing about it and I was told by the Dealer they could not duplicate the heat. I have installed a car windshield sun reflector and that has helped but it’s NOT RIGHT. I asked the service manager what will happen if it catches on fire and I was told “I DON’T KNOW”. So how many more people have to die or get burned before Polaris is forced to buy these things back?
