Club Car is recalling certain model year 2012 vehicles because of reported risk from fuel lines falling off.

The fuel lines have fallen off because of improper assembly of the fuel hose clamp, according to a release published by Club Car and the US Consumer Product Safety Commission. If not corrected, this problem could lead to a fuel leak and create a fire hazard.

Club Car has begun an inspection and repair campaign to take care of the problem, free to the consumer. Involved in the recall are the DS Gas Golf Car, Villager 4 Gas, XRT 850 Gas, XRT 800 Gas and Carryall 232 Gas vehicles.

Bill Bryant, Club Car spokesman, said 767 units are involved in the recall and no related injuries have been reported.

I will never forget what this

I will never forget what this company thought of veterans back in 1995. At that time I attempted to apply for employment at that firm. At the time I was a retired senior NCO and had been in many high level positions. I was told that the only way they would accept applications from military retirees was if I completed a course on how to work at Augusta Tech. Needless to say, I told them where to take their company. It appears they were looking for someone who would work without thinking about what they are doing. I find it hard to believe that they were installing an inferior clamp on a fuel line.
