John Deere Gator Recall Issued Due to Fuel Line Problems

About 4,650 John Deere Utility vehicles have been recalled following reports that suggest the fuel lines may separate, posing a potential fire hazard. 

The John Deere Gator recall was announced by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) on January 10, after at least three reports were received of the fuel lines separating.

Although there have been no injuries reported in connection to the defective fuel lines, this may pose a potential risk of fires, which may cause property damage or burns for riders.
