New York, N.Y.—The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Club Car LLC has voluntarily recalled golf cars and utility vehicles for fire hazards posed by a possible fuel leak. The CPSC announced the nationwide recall on September 19, 2012.
The recall was issued after discovering that the furl tank filler neck can crack and allow fuel to leak, which poses a fire hazard to consumers.
“This recall involves the following 2012 Club Car gasoline and diesel golf cars and utility vehicles. The model and serial numbers are located on a decal above the passenger's side floor board. ‘Club Car’ is printed on the front of the vehicles,” the CPSC reported.
Consumers are advised to contact Club Car for a free replacement fuel tank. Club Car is directly contacting consumers who purchased the vehicles.
