Polaris Industries, Inc. (“Polaris”) has recalled an estimated 18V484000 model year 2016-2017 GEM E2, E4, E6, and ELXD Vehicles. The drive mode switch can send an incorrect signal, causing the vehicle to become inoperative or go in the opposite direction than intended.

Polaris will notify registered owners, and dealers will replace the drive mode system with one that has separate inputs for each position Forward, Neutral and Reverse), free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in August 2018. Owners may contact Polaris customer service at 1-855-863-2284. Note: This recall supersedes recall 16V-884.
