Yamaha is recalling about 11,000 golf cars and personal transportation vehicles (PTV) from model year 2023 [1.] over concerns that the accelerator spring can become dislodged, allowing the accelerator pedal not to return to the resting position, posing crash and injury or death hazards.

Yamaha golf carts affected by this recall were sold at Yamaha Golf-Car dealerships and distributors nationwide from August 2022 through March 2023 for between $6,200 and $9,700.

If you purchased a recalled golf car, you should stop driving it immediately and contact Yamaha for a free inspection and repair. Yamaha is contacting known purchasers directly.

This recall began on July 6, 2023.

The CPSC Recall Number for this item is 23-772.

How Common are Golf Cart Accidents?

While not as common as other types of motor vehicle accidents, golf cart accidents do occur, resulting in severe injuries and even death. According to the CPSC, there are about 15,000 golf cart-related injuries requiring emergency room treatment in the U.S. each year.

According to the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), a team at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia investigated golf cart-related injuries in children and adolescents and found the number of injuries recently increased to over 6,500 annually, with just over half of the injuries in children ages 12 and younger.
