About 21,900 TXT golf cars, Cushman shuttle vehicles and Bad Boy off-road utility vehicles have been recalled by E-Z-GO, a Textron Company, of Augusta, Ga. The threaded end of the rack rod ball joint can break and the ball joint can become displaced, causing the driver to lose steering control. This can result in a crash. The firm says it’s aware of 71 reports of the ball joint breaking, 13 of which resulted in the ball joint displacing. No injuries have been reported. The recalled vehicles are gas- and electric-powered, four-wheeled vehicles with bench seats for the driver and passengers. The brand and model names are printed on the side and front panels of the vehicles. Serial numbers are printed on a plate or label located on the exterior of the vehicle below the driver’s seat.
The vehicles were sold at E-Z-GO and Bad Boy dealers nationwide from February 2011 through July 2011 for between $6,650 and $10,650. Consumers should 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 contacting known owners. For additional information, contact E-Z-GO toll-free at (800) 774-3946 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET or visit its website at www.ezgo.com.
