Recall of the Week: Club Car golf cars and hospitality, utility, and transport vehicles

11708

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.

Club Car is providing a free inspection and replacement of the brake pedal. The company is contacting its customers directly.

For more information, consumers should contact Club Car at 800-227-0739, ext. 3580 between 8 a.m and 5 p.m. ET or go to the firm's website at www.clubcar.com.

Golf carts are usually managed by six lead-acid batteries mounted on a metal rack under the seat. 36-volt system has six 6 volt and 48 volt charging system has six 8 volt battery voltage. This type of water is distilled golf cart battery added periodically. Each golf cart used by the owner of the wagon in a different way and this model determines how often the batteries need to be maintained. If you use the golf car 5-7 days a week to play golf, work at home or at work, you need to check the water level of each battery every 10-14 days. If you use it less, it is important to check the batteries at least once a month. We do not recommend that you add another battery acid.

Cars are now electrified, i wonder what will be the end of all this. You cant even imagine your life without electricity these days.

New technology such as the SoloRider, an adaptive golf cart designed for a single user, is allowing disabled persons access to the golf course and the game itself.
