What’s the Problem?

According to the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) [1], this recall affects about 20,573 gas-powered E-Z-GO, Cushman, and Tracker brand off-road vehicles.

These carts were sold at E-Z-GO, Cushman, and Tracker off-road dealerships nationwide from June 2019 through December 2019 for between $6,300 and $13,400, CPSC said.

If you purchased a golf cart that is affected by this recall, you should stop using it immediately and contact Textron Specialized Vehicles for a free repair. Textron is contacting all known purchasers directly, according to the CPSC.

EZ-Go Golf Cart Traumatic Brain Injury Case

In July 2021, a young man was ejected from an EZ-Go golf cart resulting from a sharp left-hand turn. The ejectment threw the man head-first onto a paved road. He spent many months in the hospital, yet managed to make a miraculous recovery.

However, despite his recovery, he was left with a permanent traumatic brain injury (T.B.I.) due to the severity of the impact on his head.

After hiring experts to investigate the cart and the circumstances of the incident, it was determined that Textron, Inc. d/b/a E-Z-GO, had been warned by a well-known engineer years earlier about passengers being ejected from golf carts because of inadequate passenger-side hip restraints. This engineer was particularly concerned with the rise in injuries to children between the ages of 12-16.

From 2007 until 2012, E-Z-GO had more than 10 meetings with the engineer who issued the warning, yet failed to make any safety changes to the passenger hip restraint, failed to issue any warnings to existing customers, and failed to recall any of the unsafe golf carts already on the road.
