The recall involves all model-year 2015, 2016, and 2017 youth RZR 170 recreational off-highway vehicles (ROVs). The recalled vehicles have two seats and were sold in red, blue, and white.

There are two safety problems on the recalled RZR vehicles. One problem is that the fuel neck can crack and leak fuel. The other problem is that the wiring harness can overheat or short-circuit. Fuel leaking and hitting an electrical source is a fire hazard that could result in severe injuries.

Polaris has received 4 reports of fires, 102 reports of cracked fuel tank necks, and 28 reports of burning, smoking, and melted or shorted wires. No injuries have been reported.

The recalled RZR vehicles were sold at Polaris dealers nationwide from February 2015 until July 2017 for between $4,600 and $4,800.

The recall involves the following models of the RZR 170:
