April 17, 2020 — Polaris Industries has recalled 2019 PRO XD and 2020 Ranger utility vehicles (UTVs) due to a problem with the seat belts.
The recall involves about 10,100 utility vehicles in the U.S., plus another 400 in Canada.
The problem is that the seat belt can fail to protect a rider, posing an injury hazard in a rollover or collision. No injuries have been reported.
Polaris recalled the 2019 PRO XD 4000D AWD, as well as the following 2020 Ranger utility vehicle models: RANGER 500, 570 and 1000; RANGER CREW 570 and CREW XP 1000; RANGER EV; and RANGER XP 1000.
The vehicles have 2 or 4 seats. They were sold in black, blue, camo, gray and green colors. “POLARIS” is stamped on the front grille and “POLARIS PRO XD” or “Ranger” on the sides of the utility bed.
The recalled utility vehicles were sold at authorized Polaris dealerships between October 2019 and December 2019 for $9,500-$24,000.
Polaris is asking owners to immediately stop using the vehicles and contact a dealer to schedule a free inspection and repair.
