Polaris Expands ATV Recall

Polaris Industries has added another 700 ATVs to a recall launched in February. The recall affects 95,000 ATVs subject to fire hazards because of a faulty Electronic Control Modules (ECM) that overheat. The company recalled 45,000 ATVs for the same issue three years ago.

This recall adds 2004 model year vehicles to the 2005 through 2006 model Polaris Sportsman and Scrambler 500 ATVs announce in February. The ATVs were sold at Polaris dealers nationwide from July 2004 through January 2008 for between $3,800 and $7,900.

Polaris says owners should disconnect the negative (black) battery cable from the battery when the ATV is not in use and contact their local Polaris dealer to schedule a free repair. Registered owners received direct mail notification of this recall.
