Kawasaki USA recalls off-highway utility vehicles

Debris can ignite on the vehicle’s exhaust manifold

Kawasaki Motors Corp. U.S.A., of Foothill Ranch, Calif., is recalling about 72,000 Kawasaki MULE PRO off-highway utility vehicles

Debris can ignite on the vehicle’s exhaust manifold.

Additionally, frozen water can block the breather hose allowing oil to leak, posing a fire hazard.

The firm has received 165 reports of oil leakage and 84 reports of vehicles catching fire, resulting in three injuries, including one report of a burn to the user’s foot, one report of a burn to the user’s arm, hand and buttocks and one incident of smoke inhalation.

Kawasaki is aware of more than $131,000 in property damage claims -- excluding the cost of damage to vehicles.

This recall involves model year 2015 through 2020 MULE PRO-FX, MULE PRO-FXR and MULE PRO-FXT off-highway utility vehicles.

The recalled vehicles were sold in black, blue, bronze, camo, green, red, silver and white, and have four wheels, side-by-side seating for three to six people and automotive style controls.

Mule Pro is printed on the right and left front fender. Kawasaki is printed on the cargo box. The Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) is located on the steel frame between the right front lower A-arm mounts.

The following vehicles are included in the recall:
