Due to a defect in the fuel tank filler neck in 4000 gas golf carts which can crack and allow fuel to leak, resulting in a fire hazard, Club Car has issued a recall notice to its customers.
There have been 10 reports so far of incidents of cracked fuel tank filler necks, thankfully no fires or injuries have occurred. The recalled carts and utility vehicles were sold at Club Car dealers within the US from April 2012 through June 2012, priced between $5,500 and $17,700. The full list of recalled carts can be found at the bottom of this post and if you own one of the affected carts you are advised to stop using the cart immediately and contact Club Car for a free replacement fuel tank and filler neck.
