In a press statement, Club Car LLC, in accordance with the standards and guidelines and with the full cooperation of the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), announced the voluntary safety recall of their golf cars due to a potential fuel leak and fire hazard. The recalled golf cars were manufactured in the U.S and have a fuel tank seam that can separate and allow fuel to leak, posing a fire hazard to consumers. Club Car has received three reports of incidents involving fuel tank seams splitting, however no injuries or fires have been reported to date. Consumers are being asked to stop using the recalled golf cars at once and contact the company for a free inspection and replacement of the fuel tank.
