The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission reported that Augusta-based E-Z-GO is recalling about 30,000 golf cars, shuttles and off-road utility vehicles.

The issue is that the steering wheel nut may not have been tightened sufficiently, reducing the driver’s steering control. This could result in a crash.

The recall involves E-Z-GO, Cushman and Bad Boy Buggies gas- and electric-powered, four-wheeled vehicles sold at dealers nationwide between August 2012 and February 2013.

Dangerous Junk on the Road

While they are recalling these, they should tell the State of SC that their carts were never designed to be used on a public road. Even though they state this on the dash of every cart built they need to spell it out very slowly and plainly for the idiots who use them on the road and the legislators who told them it was OK.
