A recall happens when a product has been deemed unsafe, does not comply with federal safety standards, or has a safety-related defect. The manufacturing company then puts out a recall to ensure no harm comes to the consumer, and so the product can be repaired or replaced. They do this by contacting buyers, providing them with a description of the defects and risks, information about how they will fix it, and detail the duration of time this will take. You do not have to pay for the repair.
Kawasaki 2017 Mule Utility Vehicle
A recall has recently been put out by Kawasaki in reference to their Mule Utility Vehicles. A total of 6,600 units have been affected. The Teryx and Teryx 4 and Brute Force 750 are also included in the recall. For Mule units, the vehicle identification number (VIN) is under the seat. The recalled range is JKBAFSL19HB500313 to JK1AFCR14HB531308.
The reason for this recall is that the fuel gauge retainer can collapse, causing the vehicle to leak fuel and create a fire hazard. No incidents or injuries have been reported as yet. These vehicles were sold between February and May 2017, at Kawasaki dealers.
