Bethesda, MD - Polaris Recalls RZR XP 1000 recreational off-highway vehicles due to fire hazard.
If the exhaust silencer fatigues and cracks, the heat shield may not manage heat, which may lead to melting of nearby components or fire.

The ROVs have "POLARIS" stamped on the front and back grilles, and "Polaris," "RZR," "1000," & "XP" stickers on the side panels.
The Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) can be found on the right rear frame of the vehicle, to the rear of the engine.
