The Yamaha Golf-Car Company is recalling 11,000 of their 2023 golf cars due to accelerator issues that could result in injury or death. According to a statement from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”), the recall is due to the accelerator spring becoming “dislodged, allowing the accelerator pedal not to return to the resting position, posing crash and injury or death hazards.” Indeed, this is no small issue.
The golf cars were sold by Yamaha and distributors nationwide from August 2022 through March 2023 for $6,200 – $9,700. The faulty vehicles were manufactured in Japan by Yamaha Motor Powered Products Co. Ltd. Consumers are requested to immediately stop using the affected vehicles and contact Yamaha for a free inspection and repair.
