Ski-Doo snowmobile models are under recall due to a fire risk, according to an announcement from the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).
The CPSC specified that a “fuel injector hose retainer screw can loosen and cause a fuel leak,” a malfunction that has led to at least five reported leaks and two fires.
The recall includes 6,200 Ski-Doo snowmobiles sold between February 2021 and September 2022. Recalled snowmobiles were sold with the model year 2022 and are equipped with 850 E-Tec and 850 E-Tec Turbo engines.
On May 11, 2023, the Ski-Doo snowmobile recall was expanded to include additional models. The recall expansion now includes around 12,500 units total, with 8,000 in Canada. Some of these units were previously recalled in October 2022.
The recall includes the following models:
Backcountry 850 E-TEC 2021 and 2022
- Expedition 850 E-TEC
- Freeride 850 E-TEC
- Freeride 850 E-TEC Turbo

Backcountry 850 E-TEC Turbo 2022
