An improperly installed center brake line can cause the rear brake circuit to remain pressurized during operation, resulting in overheated brakes and reduced braking performance, posing fire and crash hazards.
This recall involves certain VINs of Model Year 2023 RANGER XP 1000 NorthStar and XP 1000 NorthStar Crew vehicles.
The RANGER vehicles were sold in the following colors: blue, brown, camouflage, graphite and white. They were sold in three and six-seat configurations and have “POLARIS” stamped on the front grille. The model number and VIN are printed on a portion of the left rear frame (on the driver’s side of the vehicle) under the cargo box.
Polaris has identified one report of fire and three reports of kinked brake lines.
