The recall notice advises that the upper steering shafts on 2016-2017 General vehicles may experience movement along the length of the power steering spline.

What are the hazards?

In extreme circumstances, this movement may ultimately result in separation of the shaft from the spline, which may lead to the loss of steering.

What should owners do?

Affected owners will be contacted by direct mail and are being asked to stop using the vehicle and contact their nearest Polaris General dealer to arrange for an inspection and repair.

Further information is also available from Polaris Customer Service on 03 9394 5610 and the Polaris website.
