Australia Recalls 50,000 Honda PWC

Potential fuel tank failure leads to recall

The Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (ACCC) has recalled more than 50,000 Honda personal watercraft due to an issue with the fuel tank.

According to the recall notice, the plastic fuel tank may crack, allowing fuel to leak into the enclosed hull of the craft, which is a fire hazard. All of the units were supplied by American Honda Motor Co. Inc.

All of the affected models, says the ACCC, should be inspected and, if necessary, have a new tank installed by an authorized Honda dealer.
