Note: A defective fuel hose which can lead to a fuel leak may cause the vehicle to release air pollutants exceeding the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the California Air Resources Board (CARB) and Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC)  standards resulting in potentially failing a state or local emissions inspection.

As defined in Title 40 of the Code of Federal Regulations, the California Code of Regulations and the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, as a manufacturer, we are also required to correct vehicles that may be emitting pollutants in excess of emission standards. These emission standards were established to protect the public health or welfare from air pollution.

 

Your safety and continued satisfaction with our products are a priority for us. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you and remain committed to facilitating the process as much as we can.

 

Thank you for your immediate attention to this matter. 

 

Sincerely,

 

BRP Customer Services Department
