Polaris is recalling 3,305 of certain 2018-2019 Slingshot vehicles because the driver and passenger seat belt and seat back anchoring bracket may have been improperly welded.

Additionally, differences in the seat assembly may prevent proper latching of the seat slider, allowing the driver’s seat to move unexpectedly while underway, increasing the risk for loss of control and a crash.
