Cincinnati, Ohio consumer safety attorney reviewing ATV accident cases and recent Polaris recalls
Polaris Industries has issued ATV and UTV recalls for several models, including the popular Ranger ATV. Polaris has also issued safety warnings and recalls for Phoenix ATVs, as well as General and Bobcat UTV models.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has issued several Polaris recalls over the years following ATV-related injuries and alleged ATV and ROV defects. Polaris Recalls have been issued due to throttle issues, ATV rollovers, fire and burn injury risks, and other crash hazards.
Hundreds of consumers have reported product defects and ATV-related injuries. If a defective or recalled ATV causes an injury, victims may weigh legal action. Plaintiffs involved in ATV accident lawsuits have recovered rightful compensation.
Joe Lyon is an experienced Cincinnati, Ohio product liability lawyer representing plaintiffs nationwide in a wide variety of personal injury and product recall litigation.
Polaris Ranger & Bobcat UTV Recall
In July 2020, Polaris recalled over 13,000 ATVs and UTVs due to an improperly manufactured clutch component that can cause the engine braking feature to fail, resulting in unexpected vehicle motion, and posing a dangerous crash hazard. Models affected include:
- 2020 Ranger XP 1000
- 2019 – 2020 PRO XD 4000D UTVs
- 2019 PRO XD 2000D UTVs
- 2020 Bobcat UV34 and UV34XL UTVs
Polaris Recalls Phoenix 200
Polaris is recalling around 3,000 units of their 2018-2020 Polaris Phoenix 200 ATVs in the U.S. and Canada. The safety recall is due to the Phoenix throttle lever stop failing, and posing a crash hazard. Polaris has received five consumer defect reports of defective throttles either sticking or breaking.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled Polaris ATVs vehicles and contact a Polaris dealer. If any injuries are sustained, call The Lyon Firm for a free consult.
Polaris Ranger & General Recalled
Polaris recalled 13,200 units of the 2019 – 2020 Ranger XP 1000 & 2020 General XP 1000 Utility Vehicles (UTVs). The recall was issued due to concern that the throttle may fail to return to the idle position after the engine stalls. The safety issue involves a software problem, and may cause the vehicle to accelerate suddenly, posing a crash hazard. Models recalled include:
- RANGER XP 1000 EPS
- RANGER CREW XP 1000
- RANGER XP 1000
- RANGER CREW XP 1000
