In a news statement, Club Car, LLC, in cooperation with and in accordance with the rules and regulations of the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), issued a voluntary safety recall for certain utility and transport vehicles due to an issue with the braking system that poses a crash hazard to consumers.
The recall affects roughly 100 utility and transport vehicles that were available through authorized Club Car dealerships across the nation in April and May 2011. The vehicles come in a variety of sizes, models and colors. The vehicles included in the recall are model year 2012 gas and electric powered utility and transport vehicles with model names Café Express, Carryall 1, Carryall Turf 1, Carryall 2, Carryall Turf 2, Carryall Turf 2 Plus, Carryall 252, Carryall Turf 252, Carryall 6, Carryall Turf 6, TransPorter 4, Villager 6 Plus and Villager 8. This recall was put into action after the company discovered that the brake mounting blocks in these vehicles could potentially crack and separate, resulting in the loss of braking ability for the driver and increasing the risk of a collision. To date, no reports of accidents or injuries have been received in association with this recall.
The company is currently in the process of notifying the owners affected by this recall and will provide a free replacement of the brake pedal mounting blocks.
As a Harrisburg car accident attorney, I have seen this sort of safety recall in the past and know the dangers that defective auto products can present to consumers. If you’ve sustained an injury in a crash that you think was the result of a defective auto product, it may be in your interests to call a Harrisburg personal injury attorney to discuss the legal options the could be open to you.Tweet
