Wrench 2013 XP 4 Recall

I got a call from my local dealer today. The service department said they had received a bulletin from Polaris saying they needed me to bring my car back for warranty work. The service employee said something about faulty skid plate bolts that needed to be replaced. The service employee was very friendly and asked me when I would like to schedule an appointment . Just wondering if anyone else has been contacted by the dealership they purchased from. I just picked my car up a week and half ago. 2013 XP 4 Indy Red. (Non e.p.s.)

Re: 2013 XP 4 Recall

I worked for a dealership for about 2 months that would use a line like that to get people to bring their car back so they could take it back if the financing fell thru or something. Not saying that is what it is just that I would wait to take it back until you are sure it is truly a recall. Once they have it back you have no leverage to make them make the financing work. But hey that was a car dealership so maybe it is different.

Re: 2013 XP 4 Recall

I got my two bolts in the mail along with a bunch of others with directions on where to put them. Mine is a 2 seater though...Something about the bolts where punching holes in the oil pan

Can't be that, I already got paperwork from the finance company in the mail.

I see what your talking about, I just looked at mine. Passenger side bolt is about an inch away from the oil pan. I wonder if I can get the new bolts from the dealer and do it myself. That sure beets loading it up in the trailer and hauling it down there.

Re: 2013 XP 4 Recall

Its two bolts in the rear of the skid panel below the motor. Its strange they called for a recall.. They just mailed me two bolts with instructions on what two to replace with them. Several others got the same bolts in the mail...

Re: 2013 XP 4 Recall

Went by the dealer today and they asked if I had received new bolts in the mail yet. I told them not yet. And asked if they could just give me a couple and I would do it myself. It sure beats hauling it down there just for that. The service person told me to give it another week and if I didn't get them to come in. They told me too be carefull of the bolts because they already lost two motors on XP 4's. and almost a third but the person driving noticed a trail of oil behind him. They said Polaris alots four hours to remove and replace of damaged oil pans. I guess they have to pull out the whole motor to work on the pan. So I guess I'll wait a week and see if they come in the mail.

Go to this site and put your VIN in and see what comes up

http://www.purepolaris.com/en-us/RZR...earch-VIN.aspx

I would take it to the dealer that way you have a record of the work being done.

Yep, thats what they said. I guess i'm gonna wait a week and see if they come in the mail. If not they said they would just give them to me to put in. Pretty smart of the sevice department to tell you to bring it in, you know they are going to charge polaris an hour and it only takes 30 seconds. I guess you got to think of it as buisness revenue. I'm sure in this economy everyone is looking for any kind of work.

Re: 2013 XP 4 Recall

I guess I'm going to have to look at mine more closely cuz it looks like mine are nowhere near hitting anything... and no call or bolts in mail. Hmmm
