Club Car has issued a recall for golf carts, hospitality, transportation and utility vehicles after reports that the brake pedal may break off, which could cause an accident.
The Club Car golf cart recall was announced on Tuesday by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) after Club Car, LLC received two reports of the brake pedals cracking and separating. There have been no injuries or crashes reported in connection with the defective gas pedals.
