Federal regulators have delivered another blow to Polaris by issuing yet another product recall for their off-road vehicles.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission issued the recall of 13,500 off-roaders made by the Medina-based company on Thursday.

It comes after 14 reports of vehicles catching fire were reported to the firm, which is believed to be related to the brake master cylinder. It also received one report of a fire and two reports of melted components caused by an engine misfire.

Fortunately, nobody was injured as a result.

The affected vehicles include 2016 and 2017 models of the RZR Turbo and RZR 900 and 1000 – which have previously been recalled – as well as the RZR Turbo and GENERAL 1000 recreational off-road vehicles in various colors.

They were sold by dealers across the country between August 2015 and February 2017 for between $12,800 and $24,000.

A full list of the product codes for the recalled vehicles can be found here. Anyone with one needs to contact Polaris and schedule it for repair immediately.

It's the latest disappointment for Polaris, which according to the Star Tribune is estimated to have costs beyond $120 million related to the series of fire risk recalls of its ATVs, snowmobiles and motorcycles over the last two years.
