Indmar fuel line recall?

Recommended Posts

I was told yesterday by my dealer some 2014 monsoons had a recall regarding their fuel lines, affecting both Malibu and axis. Luckily my boat is still there, but anyone else hear this?

I got the phone call yesterday. Malibu is asking that we not use the boat until the repair is made. No details really. They said they haven't had any accidents, but want to keep it that way. We have an Axis A22 with about 5 hours on it. Kinda sucks they dont want us to use it over the holiday weekend. Apparently parts will not be available until Tues. Atleast they're on it and addressing the issue. They offered to come pick up and deliver the boat which was nice, the dealer is about 125 miles from us.

all I can say is my 350 monsoon is affected. That's all the info I have. I think the dealer said they only had four boats involved.

Dealer said he just got the service memo. I looked on the web but couldn't find it. I was told the same, parts ship Tuesday. I don't know all engines, but I have a 350 CATS and I know he said the 330. Beyond that, not sure.

I wonder if this is the same issue the GMs are having where they catch on fire and burn to the ground.

I have the 2014 23 LSV with the monsoon 350 and i got the notice from my dealer last night about the recall. As of right now the dealership don't have much information but they did tell me that he had 9 boats already affected with this concern. So far Malibu hasn't disclosed the main issue yet but i am sure we will find out soon.

I just got a certified letter from Malibu talking about a faulty crimp on the fuel lines from their supplier. According to the letter this is a quick fix but unfortunately we can't use our boats until the repair has been made so it looks like no lake time this long holiday weekend...

At least they are on it. I wonder how many people either

A. Don't know about it and will be using their boat

Or

B. Figure they'll chance it and use it anyway.

At least there have no issues on a boat yet

Identical thing happened with 2003 Monsoons days before I was going on summer vacation.

The issue is with the short, flexible fuel line between the fuel tank and engine on a number of recently manufactured Malibu's fitted with the 350hp and 410HP engines (not sure about the 450hp). It is a simple fix and WSA changed out mine this morning with the boat on the lift at the lake and it took less than five minutes.

450 is impacted by the recall as well.

So this doesn't just affect indmar engines then?

I saw my boat at the factory on April 8th. I thought that I would have had delivery last week so I stopped by my dealer today to get the scoop. Apparently the fuel line issue is more widespread. Even though my boat was finished and shrink wrapped for delivery, they pulled it back out along with 3 others from my dealer and fixed the fuel line issue. So even though my boat was just built... Indmar is still having problems.
