Dear Polaris Slingshot Owner,
I want to thank you for joining the Polaris Slingshot family. You now own the best ride on three wheels that turns heads the moment you pull up, and we are proud to have you in the cockpit with us.
With constant innovation and relentless focus on quality, we’ve identified an opportunity to reduce oil consumption in your Polaris Slingshot. An updated Positive Crankcase Ventilation (PCV) system and dipstick are available for installation by an Authorized Polaris Slingshot Dealer. We ask that you contact your dealer and schedule an appointment to have the update performed, at no cost to you, at your earliest convenience.
While this update will enhance the performance of your vehicle, we recognize the inconvenience and time required to have it completed. As part of the work performed, we are providing a complimentary engine oil and filter change. That way, you can get back in the cockpit knowing a full engine oil and filter service has been completed using the recommended PS-4 5W-50 oil.
To take full advantage of your Slingshot, performing a pre-ride inspection as described in your Owner’s Manual is always recommended. When checking or changing the oil, note that this update will change the fill capacity to 6 quarts. At operating temp, the oil level should be maintained between the ADD and FULL marks on the dipstick. Visit the Slingshot Help Center for a video tutorial on completing the pre-ride inspection.
The team here knows and appreciates how much you enjoy the open road and that’s why we’ve always sought to engineer the best ride on three wheels. Again, thank you for being a Polaris Slingshot owner and for taking the time to have your vehicle updated. We hope to see you out on the road soon.
If you need assistance contacting or locating a Slingshot Dealer, or if you have questions your Slingshot Dealer is not able to address, contact our Polaris Owner Connections Department at 1-855-863-2284 or visit the Slingshot Help Center.
