Polaris Industries of Medina, Minnesota, is recalling about 3,000 model year 2018-2020 Polaris Phoenix 200 ATVs sold in the U.S., and Canada.
The throttle lever stop can fail due to damage during shipping, posing a crash hazard.
The firm has received five consumer reports; four of them pertain to the throttle stop breaking, and one report of the throttle stop sticking. No injuries are reported.
This recall involves all model year 2018 through 2020 Phoenix 200 ATVs.
“Polaris” is decaled on the front body and on the sides of the ATV seats, and “Phoenix 200” is decaled on the side panels. The ATVs were sold in a gray color.
The Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) is located on the vehicle’s front left frame.
The ATVs, manufactured in Taiwan, were sold at Polaris dealers nationwide from November 2017, through April 2020, for between $3,800 and $4,200.
