The CPSC is recalling 2009 Polaris Ranger “Crew” and “6x6” recreational vehicles because an electrical short can lead to overheating in the rear tail light wiring harnesses, posing a fire hazard to consumers.
Affected model numbers and names are R09RF68AF (Ranger 700 EFI 6x6), the R09RF68AR (Ranger 700 EFI 6x6), the R09WH68AC (Ranger 700 EFI Crew), the R09WH68AG (Ranger 700 EFI Crew), the R09WH68AL (Ranger 700 EFI Crew), the R09WH68AR (Ranger 700 EFI Crew) and the R09WH68AZ (Ranger 700 EFI Crew).
About 3,800 of the vehicles were sold from December 2008 through July 2009 for about $11,500.
The company has received 46 reports of overheating in the vehicle’s tail light area, resulting in melting of plastic. In 22 of these reports, consumers reported small flames. No injuries have been reported.
Customers are instructed to contact the company for a free repair.
