Short-distance cars recalled due to brake failure risk
Club Car Limited Liability Company of Augusta, Georgia has issued a voluntary recall for approximately 100 of its transport and utility vehicles due to the possibility that the brake pedal mounting blocks can become fractured and separated, causing brake failure and increasing the likelihood of a collision.
This recall affects model year 2012 electric and gas powered vehicles sold for $6,000 to $11,000 at authorized Club Car dealers across the United States in April and May 2011 in assorted sizes, models and colors. These short-distance vehicles are used for transportation and utility purposes, and they can be identified by model names and the serial number located above and to the right of the vehicle’s accelerator pedal. Vehicles affected by the recall bear the model and serial numbers listed here: Carryall 2, Turf 2, and Turf 2 Plus (EG/QB/QT/RG 1222-286712 to 1225-288285); Villager 6 Plus (QS 1225-287558 to 1225-288079); Café Express (AF 1225-287118 to 1225-287529); Carryall 1 and Carryall Turf 1 (FD/FG/HD/HG 1225-287074 to 1225-288151); TransPorter 4 (JS/JT 1225-287102 to 1225-287869); Carryall 252 and Turf 252 (JK/JL/XG/ZG 1225-287215 to 1225-288287); Villager 8 MG/QE 1225-287531 to 1225-288088); and the Carryall 6 and Carryall Turf 6 (JR/JU/JV 1225-287116 to 1225-288112). The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is asking that any consumers injured by this product contact the agency to report their experiences.
