The recall notice advises that the affected vehicles may have been manufactured with fuel tanks that do not meet quality standards. As a result, the fuel tank may crack, resulting in a fuel leak.
What are the hazards?
A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source may present a fire hazard.
The ACCC advises that consumers should not use their vehicle until it has been inspected and repaired by an authorised Polaris dealer.
Owners will be contacted by mail at their Polaris-registered address and instructed to contact their local Polaris dealer to arrange for an inspection and repair of the vehicle.
Further information is available from the Polaris Customer Service Department on 03 9394 5610, Polaris dealerships and on the Polaris Sales Australia website.
