Anybody else get this recall yet?



Dear Polaris Owner,

Our records indicate that you are the owner of a Polaris Off-Road Vehicle affected by Safety Recall R‑20‑05, which was announced on October 16, 2020.

Polaris has determined 2016‑2018 GENERAL models were manufactured with a fuel pump flange assembly that when exposed to certain chemicals may degrade over time and may result in a fuel leak. If a fuel leak occurs in the presence of an ignition source, this may lead to a fire hazard.

A letter will arrive at your address by postal mail that provides more information about the update and what you should do next.

DO NOT OPERATE YOUR VEHICLE.

Visit our Off‑Road Safety Recall page to verify if your vehicle is impacted by the recall. Please contact your dealer to complete a transfer of ownership if you no longer own the vehicle. Your local dealer can be found on our Dealer Locator page.

Due to many state and federal guidelines implemented due to COVID-19, some dealers have made changes to hours of operation or may even be closed. Please visit the Polaris Coronavirus Response pageto help answer questions regarding these concerns. Polaris will continue to focus on the health and safety of our customers, dealer personnel, and all Polaris employees. We will continue to respond as the situation evolves. Continue to monitor this page for the latest updates.

While your dealer is in the best position to answer your questions, you can also contact our Polaris Owner Connections Department by calling 1-800-POLARIS (1-800-765-2747)to speak with a representative.

Sincerely,

Polaris Service​

Says to not operate vehicle and then what?
Dealers here are booked up for 2 months or more and one isn't suppose to use the machine until it gets looked at?
Don't think so!

Agreed. I'll get to it when I get to it. Like all other life threatening recalls. Had a couple on the wife's SUV for 2 years now...

Well, the email states that the letter will contain the details of the update. Are they kicking it down the road? I hadn't thought of that. Either way... not too worried about it...

It doesn't actually say they have a solution to the problem yet though.
That's normal in the industry. Once a safety issue is discovered, they have to notify the owner. Then the manufacturer can decide how to handle the recall and repair the issue. (the cheapest way to repair the issue with the least damage to the company bottom line)

I'll bet that I had a half dozen safety recalls on my last pickup for the Takata air bag fiasco. I traded it off before they ever got the repair parts.

Of course I bought my 2018 used! I bet I never get the snail mail cause the fella I bought it from probably won’t let me know. And I tried to use the link on the above notice, Off road safety recall page, and they have everything they make on there EXCEPT the General! Please keep us posted on this. I have a dealer close, but I won’t trust them to do any work. I will have them get me the fix, and I will install myself, like a lot on here will do also!

Select the Ranger ... then you will see the General models in the drop down menu.

I would bet if you are the current owner you could go to the dealer and show them registration and get listed with Polaris as the owner..

Well, there is a reason I don’t visit casino’s because my luck is so bad, and I live 8 miles from one! But, somehow my 2018 must have been built later in the year, cause it seems my general isn’t effected by this safety recall!👍😂 (Might need to go buy a lottery ticket!)

Obviously they made a part change on the 2019 - 20 Models.

After seeing Dega Hound's post I logged into the Polaris site and checked my VIN#, no recall on mine. Bought mine in late 2018 so they must have switched vendors for the faulty flange.
