Polaris has issued a stop-ride/stop-sale order for 2,400 2023 and 2024 Polaris Ranger Kinetic utility side-by-sides. According to a news release from Polaris, pushing the brake and accelerator pedals at the same time could cause a loss of throttle response. If you then release the brake, the rig could roll away without throttle control.

According to a news release, Polaris has received 10 complaints of the issue, though so far the company is not aware of crashes or injuries resulting from the problem. Dealers have been told to stop selling the machines while the company works on a solution, and owners should immediately stop using their vehicles.

Once a fix is pinpointed and a plan developed to solve the problem, Polaris will contact affected owners. Until then, unfortunately, it’s best to stop using your Kinetic. Polaris says it has reported the matter to the Consumer Product Safety Commission.
