Polaris Expands Phoenix 200 Stop Sale/Stop Ride

The company states, “Consumers should immediately stop using the impacted vehicles.”

Polaris has announced an expansion of the recent recall of its Phoenix 200 ATV. Although initially issued on May 25 to cover the 2014-2021 model-year units, Polaris expanded the Stop Sale/Stop Ride to include Phoenix 200s from the 2011 to 2013 model years.

“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,” Polaris states. The recall addresses the possibility of the throttle lever speed control bracket failing, causing the throttle to stick open. At the time of this writing, Polaris has reported an additional two incidents in which a throttle stop failed, for a total of 10. That may not sound like a lot, but when safety is a concern, any issue is one too many.

Phoenix 200 owners should sideline their machines immediately.Polaris

Dealers cannot sell Phoenix 200 ATVs until a remedy has been performed, and owners should not ride their machines until they have been fixed. Polaris does not yet have a fix for the issue. Further information will be provided from Polaris when a repair procedure is available. In the meantime, it’s best for Phoenix 200 owners to sideline their ATVs. Those who are unsure if they own an affected model can contact Polaris at (800) 765-2747 or look up their vehicle identification number (VIN) to see if their rig is subject to any open recalls.
