Summary: 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.
Consequence: 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.
Remedy: 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 manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact the Vehicle Production Group at 1-877-681-3678.
