ElDorado Mobility is recalling 5,842 2010-2015 model-year Amerivan and Amerivan 10 wheelchair-accessible vehicles because of potential fuel leaks, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported.

The recall covers vehicles manufactured from Sept. 1, 2009, to March 28 of this year. They are built on Dodge and Chrysler minivan chassis.

“The crimp fastener on the fuel line assembly of the affected vehicles may not be fully crimped, allowing fuel to leak at the hose to fitting assembly,” NHTSA said on its website. “A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source can increase the risk of a fire.”

ElDorado dealers will inspect and rework or replace the fuel line assembly, free of charge. Vehicle owners can reach ElDorado Mobility customer service at (866) 392-6300.
