Reedsburg, WI — The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Columbia ParCar Corporation have voluntarily recalled golf, service and utility vehicles for crash hazards the vehicle poses to consumers. The CPSC announced the nationwide product recall on January 26, 2012.

The recall was issued after discovering that the lower steering yoke can loosen where it attaches to the steering rack and pinion, which can cause the driver to lose control of the vehicle and crash.

“The recalled items are 2009, 2010 and 2011 Columbia ParCar golf carts, low-speed service and utility vehicles. They are 36- or 48-volt electric vehicles manufactured from July 1, 2008 through June 30, 2011. Vehicles can be identified by their Vehicle Identification Numbers (VINs) located either on the passenger’s side left kick panel, in the driver’s side storage compartment or on the steering wheel beneath the center cap,” the CPSC reported.
