Consumer Product Safety Commission has issued a recall statement yesterday for about 30,000 E-Z-GO vehicles about concerning safety issues. CPSC stated that the driver cannot properly control the steering due to a loose steering wheel nut. And this can result in a crash hazard.

Actually one such incident was also reported in which the vehicle went over a curb. The passenger in the vehicle suffered a chipped tooth. This crash hazard occurred due to an insufficiently tightened steering wheel nut that reduced steering control.

CPSC recall involved E-Z-GO, Cushman and Bad Boy Buggies brand models. All vehicles were manufactured by E-Z-GO Division of Textron Inc. in Augusta, Georgia. The recalled vehicles include both gas-powered and electric-powered models that were sold in between August 2012 through February 2013 for between $6,650 and $10,650 via authorized dealers nationwide.

The serial numbers of recalled E-Z-GO and Cushman vehicles are from 2823208 to 2850425 and from 3000001 to 3003187. Bad Boy Buggies vehicles have serial numbers from 8005089 to 8006013. Customers can see these serial numbers printed on a plate or label inside the car below the driver's seat.

Recalled models include: E-Z-GO TXT Fleet golf cars, E-Z-GO Freedom TXT (Shuttle 2+2 TXT and Valor personal golf cars all with one bench seat and one rear-facing seat), E-Z-GO Express with two bench seats and one rear-facing seat, E-Z-GO Terrain with a cargo bed, Cushman Shuttle vehicles, Bad Boy Buggies HD, LD, LTO, and LT Safari utility vehicles. The brand and model names are printed on the sides and front panels of the vehicles.

CPSC asked all of its consumers to "immediately stop using the recalled vehicles and contact E-Z-GO or an authorized dealer for a free repair. E-Z-GO and E-Z-GO dealers are already contacting known owners."
