by BROOKE GOLD HASSON | Mar 03, 2014

club-car2-300x220Club Car is recalling roughly 1,800 of its Precedent I2 golf and transport vehicles because of a potential falling hazard. The hip restraint on the passenger side of these vehicles can break, creating the danger.

The recalled vehicles vary in model, color, and size, but all are from the model year 2012. Models can be identified by both model number and serial number located to the right of the accelerator pedal.

If you own a 2013 model, be sure to check the wheel recall associated with some models. It was issued in November of last year.
