Amanda Tejuca6 months ago

A teenager's death has been cited in the recall of about 133,000 Polaris RZR recreational off-highway vehicles.

About the Recreational Off-Highway Vehicles (ROV) Recall

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), a fire hazard is presented to the drivers and passengers of the recreational ROV’s as they can catch on fire. More than 160 reports of fires were reported, with one death and 19 reports of injuries.

The 15-year-old passed away from a rollover that resulted in a fire and the injuries reported included first, second, and third degree burns.

As a solution, Polaris recommends that consumers stop using the ROV’s immediately and contact the firm for a free repair.
