The cockpit rear panel between the seats and the cargo bed can overheat and melt the plastic, posing a fire hazard.
This recall involves model year 2022 Fugleman UT10E and UT10X Utility Terrain Vehicles (UTVs).

The model number is located on the right and left rear side panels next to the Fugleman logo.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled UTVs and bring the vehicles to an authorized Segway Powersports dealer for a free repair, which includes installation of larger and additional heat shields. The firm has contacted all known purchasers.
The firm has received 10 reports of incidents including seven incidents involving fire and three incidents with overheating. No injuries have been reported.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is charged with protecting the public from unreasonable risk of injury or death associated with the use of thousands of types of consumer products. Deaths, injuries, and property damage from consumer product-related incidents cost the nation more than $1 trillion annually. CPSC's work to ensure the safety of consumer products has contributed to a decline in the rate of injuries associated with consumer products over the past 50 years.
Federal law prohibits any person from selling products subject to a Commission ordered recall or a voluntary recall undertaken in consultation with the CPSC.
