Georgia-Based Golf Cart Company Recalling Carts for Accelerator Issues


October 14, 2018

KENNESAW, GA. -  October 9, 2018 (dailyhornet.com) According to an online news report from dailyhornet.com, a Georgia-based golf cart company is recalling 145,000 golf carts because of issues related to the accelerator pedal springs.*

The accelerator pedal springs on certain golf carts from Yamaha Golf-Car Company can reportedly break, which poses a crash hazard. Yamaha, based in Kennesaw, Georgia, has received more than 400 reports regarding accelerator spring failures. No injuries were associated with the failures. 

The recall affects Yamaha golf carts manufactured between 2016 and 2018 and applies to both gas and electric carts, as well as personal, transportation, and specialty vehicles. The models came in blue, green, red, white, tan, and silver and were sold at Yamaha golf cart dealers around the United States from June 2015 to August 2018. The carts retailed between $5,500 and $12,300. 

A full list of recalled carts can be found on the website for the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. Model and serial numbers for each cart can be located on the label under the seat on the right or left side. 

Yamaha will soon be directly contacting all registered owners of affected vehicles. Owners of affected golf carts should stop using the vehicles immediately and contact a local Yamaha golf cart dealer to schedule repairs. Repairs will be at no cost to cart owners. For more information, consumers can contact Yamaha at (866) 747-4027 or visit the Yamaha website and click on the “CPSC Recall Alerts” tab.
