Club Car Recalls 2011 DS Golf Carts Due to Brake Pedal Defect

Club Car Golf Cart Safety Recall

Club Car has issued a safety recall due to an issue with defective brake pedal blocks

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has recently announced that Club Car has voluntarily issued a safety recall for its 2011 DS golf carts and other hospitality, utility and transport vehicle models. There is a potential defect with the brake pedal mounting blocks which can crack and separate, resulting in a loss of braking ability. This can obviously result in a crash if this failure happens while the golf cart is in use.

Although Club Car has not aware of this happening to any other the affected carts during operation by its customers they are dealing with this potentially serious problem with a product recall.

Owners should stop using the recalled Club Cars that are affected and contact the firm to receive free brake pedal replacement mounting blocks. As a preemptive measure Club Car is contacting all known owners of the recalled vehicles. If you are concerned that you own a Club Car which potentially could be affected please contact Club Car at (800) 227-0739 ext. 3580 between 8 a.m and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday or go to the firm's website www.clubcar.com
