Textron, manufacturer of specialized vehicles, has announced the recall of the E-Z-GO RXV Personal Transportation Vehicle.
As announced by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), the vehicles are recalled because the “steering knuckles and A-arms can break during or after an impact and cause loss of steering control, posing crash and injury hazards.”
The recall affects about 34,000 E-Z-GO vehicles sold between January 2022 and September 2022. Recalled vehicles have a model year of 2022 or 2023, and sell under the names Freedom and Valor.
Consumers are instructed to check for a serial number between 5656874 and 5656886, or 5659215 through 5700741. Owners of recalled E-Z-GO Vehicles should contact Textron to have their vehicle parts repaired.
The manufacturing defect has led to 355 reports of incidents of these parts breaking, leading to at least one injury.
