Honda has issued a recall for 65,000 of their off-road vehicles due to fire and burn hazard. The recall involves all model year 2016-2017, and some model year 2018 Honda Pioneer 1000 Vehicles.

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the muffler can overheat, causing the plastic heat shield to melt or catch fire, posing a fire and burn hazard to consumers.

The serial number (VIN #) is stamped in the frame at the left rear, below the tilt-up bed/seat.

The following model and serial number ranges are affected by the recall:
