Golf Cart and Utility Vehicle Recall includes TXT, Cushmann Shuttle, and Bad Boy Brands

Bad Boy LTO -

(Best Syndication News) - The TXT, Cushmann shuttle, and Bad Boy brand golf cars and utility vehicles are involved in a voluntary recall because the carts have a rack rod ball joint that could brake causing the steering to malfunction. This could cause the vehicle to crash.

The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) reported that the E-Z-GO company who manufacturers the product received 71 reports of the ball joint breaking. Out of these, thirteen had the ball joint displace, which could have affected the steering control. No injuries were reported.

The electric and gas powered motorized vehicles were sold at E-Z-GO and Bad Boy dealers nationwide between February 2011 and July 2011 at a price range of $6,650 and $10,650. See recall list below.

Owners of the vehicles are asked to stop using it until it has been properly repaired. The authorized dealers will be offering a free repair. The E-Z-GO company is notifying the owners that are registered with them. Owners can also contact E-Z-GO toll-free at (800) 774-3946 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET or visit their website at
