Polaris Issues Stop Sale/Stop Ride for all 2011-2021 Phoenix 200 ATV Models
Polaris has expanded the affected vehicle population for the Stop Sale, Stop Ride issued on May 25, 2021, to include Model Year 2011-2013. Polaris has determined that the throttle speed control stop on all Model Year 2011-2021 Phoenix 200 ATV models can break if the throttle speed control bracket is contacted with excessive force, which can lead to an interaction between the throttle lever and throttle speed control bracket that results in a stuck throttle condition, posing a crash hazard. This concern is present on all Model Year 2011-2021 Phoenix 200 ATV models and must be remedied even if a prior recall bulletin was previously completed.
If the speed control bracket has been removed, the vehicle is safe to be operated. Polaris is currently evaluating a repair procedure for this concern to allow continued use of the speed control system.
Number of affected vehicles: approximately 15,600 vehicles globally
Number of incidents: Polaris has received 10 reports of throttle stop breaking or sticking, including one report of a crash which involved a minor injury.
Consumers should immediately stop using the impacted vehicles. Polaris is currently evaluating a repair procedure for this concern. At the time of availability, Polaris will re-issue this communication with repair information.
Polaris is notifying dealers and contacting affected registered owners by mail, phone and email if available. Polaris has reported this matter to the Consumer Product Safety Commission.
