Polaris is recalling certain model year 2010-2013 Global Electric Motorcars manufactured from January 14, 2010, through November 23, 2012. The parking brake has mechanical components which may wear prematurely and prevent the brake from engaging.
If the parking brake fails to engage while parking, the driver may not be able to prevent the vehicle from rolling away after exiting the vehicle, increasing the risk of a vehicle crash.
Polaris will notify owners and dealers will replace the parking brake lever assembly free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin February 4, 2013. Owners may contact Polaris customer service by calling 1-888-704-5290.
