On January 31, 2024, Ski-Doo announced a voluntary safety recall for certain 2024 Ski-Doo MXZ and Renegade snowmobiles that came equipped from the factory with Pilot X skis due to a potential for the left ski to break. The issue relates to the molding process from Ski-Doo's supplier, where the mold cavity AC2 produced defective skis. 

On snowmobiles with affected left skis, riders could lose control and risk possible injury or death. As a result, Ski-Doo parent company Bombardier Recreational Products is recommending that owners of affected snowmobiles not ride them until after the recall service is performed. All recall service will be performed at no cost to the customer.
