Polaris recalling 16,550 Ranger, Crew SxS vehicles

Polaris is recalling about 16,550 2013 Polaris Ranger 500 EFI and Ranger Crew 500 EFI recreational off-highway vehicles because the vehicles’ throttle cable can melt on the exhaust pipe and fail to operate properly. The defect can cause the rider to lose control, posing a crash hazard, according to a notice posted by the CPSC.

The vehicles were sold at Polaris dealers nationwide from June 2012 through February 2014 for between $9,300 and $11,000.

Polaris has received one report of a vehicle’s throttle failing to return to idle after accelerating, causing the operator to lose control of the vehicle and be thrown from it, resulting in a scraped shin.

Consumers are advised to immediately stop using the recalled Polaris Ranger vehicles and contact a Polaris dealer to schedule a free inspection and repair. Consumers will also be given inspection instructions if they wish to perform their own inspection. Polaris is contacting its customers directly.
