Textron Specialized Vehicles is recalling certain Prowler Pro and Tracker 800SX utility vehicles (UTVs) from the 2022 and 2023 model years. This recall affects approximately 10,300 units in the United States and about 1,000 units in Canada. The primary issue is that the fuel tank cap does not fit correctly, leading to fuel leaks around the filler neck and posing a potential fire hazard. There have been 48 reports of fuel leakage around the cap, though no injuries have been reported to date.
