The first week of July, The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Polaris Industries Inc recalled 800 2009 Polaris Assault model snowmobiles. Bolts on the rear suspension can break causing the rail tip to become dislodged and interfere with the snowmobile’s track. This can cause the track to lock up and the rider to lose control of the snowmobile, posing a risk of injury.

his recall involves 2009 Polaris 800 Assault RMK 146 snowmobiles model numbers S09PL8EE and S09PL8ES. “Assault 800” is printed on the snowmobile’s hood. “Polaris” is written on the seat. The model number is located on the right side of the tunnel below the seat. The snowmobiles are red and black. Polaris dealers sold the snowmobiles nationwide from September 2008 through June 2009 for about $10,600.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled snowmobiles and contact any Polaris snowmobile dealer to schedule a free repair. Polaris has notified registered consumers directly about this recall. For additional information, contact (888) 704-5290 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. CT Monday through Friday, or visit the firm’s Web site at www.polarisindustries.com

If you or a family member is injured by a product, you need to get immediate medical care. If there is a significant affect or injury, you should contact an attorney concerning the problem. Early investigation can include the collection of product, checking recall alerts, and the proper notifying of those who caused the problem.

    Bad luck, bad design, or just a combination of both ? What an ironic name for a snowmobile ! Thankfully the recall came about fairly quickly and people can get these repaired before the upcoming winter. Polaris is a very good brand, and this shows that even premium brands can encounter mishaps from time to time. Thanks for the update.

  2. We don't have these in Hawaii but we have a lot of problems with ATV's that flip over too easily.

    Hopefully this will be the only problem with the new ones and that there will be enough snow to use them. Thanks to both of you for reading and commenting.
