July 27, 2020 —Polaris recalled certain 2020 Ranger XP, 2019-2020 PRO XD, and 2020 Bobcat off-road vehicles / utility vehicles due to a crash hazard.
The problem is that an improperly manufactured clutch component can cause the engine braking feature to fail, resulting in unexpected vehicle motion, according to Polaris.
The recall involves model-year 2020 Ranger XP 1000 and Ranger CREW XP 1000 Off-Road Vehicles, model-years 2019-2020 PRO XD 4000D UTVs, model-year 2019 PRO XD 2000D, and model-year 2020 Bobcat UV34 and Bobcat UV34XL utility vehicles.
