Polaris has issued a recall of its 3-wheeler Slingshot over some seat issues. The company said that the ‘autocycles’ manufactured between 2015-2018 are affected by this recall.
The report says, “If the seat slides unexpectedly, this may increase the risk of a loss of control or the risk of injury in the event of a crash. If the seat belt buckle and seat back dislodge from the seat base, this may increase the risk of injury in the event of a crash.”
Perhaps, there’s some issue with the welding of the bracket of the driver’s seat and passenger’s seat belt and seat back anchoring. This might cause the seats to not stay in their places properly and would cause them to move around unexpectedly.
Polaris says that a total of 24,235 units have been affected. It will contact the owners of these vehicles and notify them about the problem. The dealers will check the vehicle and any repair/replacement needed will be done free of cost. The entire recall process is expected to commence from April 16, 2018.
