The Polaris Scrambler ATV recall was issued after 9 reports of the throttle release switch failing, which resulted in 2 minor injuries.

The ATVs were sold at Polaris dealers nationwide from April 2013 through June 2017 for about $13,300.

The name “Scrambler XP” is printed on the center panel and “Polaris” is stamped on the front grill and the rear panel.

The recalled ATVs can be identified by the following model-numbers: A14GH9EAW, A15SVE95AW, A16SVE95AM, A16SVE95AA and A17SVE95AM. The model number is located on the fuel tank cover.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled ATVs and contact Polaris to schedule a free repair.

For more information, owners can contact Polaris at 800-765-2747 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. CT Monday through Friday or online at www.Polaris.com and click on “Off Road Safety Recalls” at the bottom of the page.

The recall comes just 3 weeks after Polaris recalled about 25,600 Sportsman 570 ATVs after 30 reports of fuel leaks and 4 fires. On July 20, Polaris also recalled 1,160 of the 2017 RZR 570 and S 470 off-road vehicles because the front brakes can detach and cause a crash.
