Additional information:

Among the 91 vehicle recalls the NHTSA has announced this August comes news of the following:

Polaris Industries, Inc. (“Polaris”) has recalled an estimated 10,658 model year 2017-2019 Polaris Slingshot S, Slingshot SL, Slingshot GT LE, and Slingshot SLR Motorcycles. In the event of a crash, the seat belt retractor on the side opposite of the impact may separate, preventing the seatbelt from locking.

According to the NHTSA, in the event of a crash, if the seat belt does not lock, the occupant may not be properly restrained, increasing their risk of injury.

Polaris will notify registered owners, and dealers will install a kit that prevents the retractor from separating in the event of a crash, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin August 28, 2018. Owners may contact Polaris customer service at 1-855-863-2284. Polaris’ number for this recall is T-18-03.
