If you play golf, you may want to pay attention to a recent recall, or you could end the game with a bigger handicap than you started with.
Club Car LLC. is recalling its golf carts, hospitality, transportation and utility vehicles after reports that the brake pedal may break off, possibly causing an accident. So far, two occurrences of the breaks cracking have been reported, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.
A wide variety of electric and gas golf cars, hospitality vehicles and short-distance transportation vehicles are included in the recall:
The Club Car recall includes the DS Electric Golf Car, the DS Gas Golf Car, Café Express, Villager 4, Villager 6, Villager 6 Plus, Villager 8, Carryall 1, Carryall Turf 1, Carryall 2, Carryall 2 Plus, Carryall Turf 2, Carryall Turf 2 Plus, Carryall 6, Carryall Turf 6, Carryall 232, Carryall 252, Turf 252, TransPorter 4, TransPorter 6 and the XRT 800, 810, 850 and 900 models.

The vehicles were sold by Club Car dealers from April 2010 through July 2010 for $6,000 to $17,000.
As a North Charleston personal injury attorney , I’m glad to hear there have been no accidents related to the recall . Hopefully the company is able to fix the problem before any injuries occur.
