About 5,000 Club Car golf cars and hospitality, utility, and transport vehicles are being recalled.
The brake pedal can crack and separate, resulting in a loss of braking ability. This could cause a crash to occur.
Club Car has received two reports of brake pedals breaking. No injuries have been reported.
The recalled vehicles are Model 2010 DS golf cars and hospitality, utility, and transport vehicles used for short-distance transportation. They are various sizes, models, and colors.
The vehicles can be identified by the serial number, which is above and to the right of the accelerator pedal. For a listing of models and serial numbers, see the photo above.
Manufactured in the U.S., the vehicles were sold at authorized Club Car dealers nationwide from April 2010 through July 2010 for between $6,000 and $17,000.
