Kawasaki Motors of Foothill Ranch, Calif., is recalling about 2,600 Kawasaki Mule Pro-MX off-highway utility vehicles.
The vehicle’s oil cooler hoses can separate and the fuel tank cap gasket can crack allowing fuel to leak, posing a fire hazard.
The company has received seven reports of vehicles catching on fire and being damaged. No injuries have been reported.
This recall involves 2019 Mule Pro MX utility vehicles, models 700 EPS, 700 EPS LE and 700 Camo EPS.
The four-wheel, off-highway utility vehicles were sold in camo, green, red and white. They have side by side seating for two people and automotive style controls. Mule Pro MX 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 utility vehicles, manufactured in Taiwan, were sold exclusively at Kawasaki dealers nationwide from August 2018, through February 2019, for about $12,000.
