The Vehicle Production Group "VPG" is recalling certain model year 2011 and 2012 MV-1 vehicles, equipped with a compressed natural gas "CNG" engine. The pressure relief plug for the CNG storage tank may be incorrectly assembled.
If the plug is incorrectly assembled, it may inadvertently discharge the CNG. A CNG leak in the presence of an ignition source may ignite and result in a vehicle fire.
The Vehicle Production Group will notify owners, and dealers will install a secondary pressure relief device on each vehicle to prevent leaking, free of charge. The safety recall began on November 13, 2012. Owners may contact the Vehicle Production Group at 1-877-681-3678.
