Hunters and everyone else love these popular ATVs. Unfortunately, certain models made by Polaris, have some big problems that can lead to serious injuries and burns. There is now a Recall in place which applies to 43,000 of the vehicles.
Notably, for us in Mississippi, there is an even higher risk of problems when outdoor temperatures are high. So far, “at least 7 injuries have been reported” according to this WKRG article out of Mobile, Alabama.
Here is the link to the Consumer Product Safety Commission Notice.
It is important to remember, all recall hotlines run by the company operate for information gathering purposes as much as they operate to help customers. Like any company facing litigation, we always have to be aware, they have already begun building their cases against the folks who have legitimate claims for injuries caused by their defective products.
