May 14, 2021 — BRP has recalled about 2,400 Ski-Doo snowmobiles due to a fire hazard.
The recall involves 2021 and 2022 model-year Ski-Doo snowmobiles, including Backcountry, Expedition, MXZ, Renegade, Skandic and Tundra snowmobiles equipped with a 600 EFI engine.
The problem is that the “snowmobile’s muffler can overheat and cause the upper right-hand vent grill to melt and drip plastic on the exhaust, posing a fire hazard,” according to the recall notice.
BRP said it has received 10 reports of overheating mufflers, including 3 incidents that resulted in fires. No injuries were reported.
The recalled snowmobiles were sold at Ski-Doo dealers nationwide from August 18, 2020 to March 18, 2021 for $8,000 to $11,000.
The manufacturer is asking consumers to stop using their recalled vehicles and contact a Ski-Doo dealer for a free repair.
