Kawasaki MULE Utility Vehicle Recall announced for Fuel Hose Repair
(Best Syndication News) - The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced a voluntary recall of Kawasaki MULE 600 and 610 model utility carts because there is a danger of the vehicle catching on fire. The problem is that a fuel tube could rub on the air cleaner housing and develop a hole. This hole could leak fuel and cause a fire. No reports of injury or product damage has been reported to the company.
There are around 3,900 utility carts involved in the recall and were sold at Kawasaki dealerships between June 2011 to February 2012 for between $6,700 and $8,200. The 2012 model year of the Kawasaki MULE 600 (KAF400BCF), MULE 610 4x4 (KAF400ACF), and the MULE 610 4x4 XC (KAF400DCF or KAF400ECF) have the problem that needs to be inspected and repaired. The utility carts come in green, red, black, and camouflage.
Consumers who have the recalled utility carts should stop using them until they can have an authorized Kawasaki dealer inspect and repair the problem at no cost.
