A company seeks to repair some of its snowmobiles after reports of fires and injuries.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission reported that Polaris Industries is recalling its 2021-2023 Matryx, 2015-2022 Axys and 2013-2014 Pro-Ride snowmobiles because an electrostatic discharge inside the fuel tank can cause vapors to ignite during operation and the tank to burst, posing a fire hazard.
The company said it has received 30 reports of the fuel tank bursting, including 16 incidents of fire and one report of a second-degree burn.
The snowmobiles were sold at Polaris dealers nationwide from October 2011 to August 2022. Customers can enter their VIN at polaris.com to see if their snowmobile is included.
Consumers should stop using affected snowmobiles and contact Polaris at 800-765-2747 or an authorized dealer to schedule a free repair, consisting of replacement of the fuel tank assembly. Those who need to start their snowmobile in order to move it should make sure the fuel tank is full.
