SVR’s Take

This is a large recall representing basically a year’s worth of vehicle sales for these models. Luckily nobody reported being injured. The STOV market in general continues to experience a significant amount of recalls relative to total market sales. SVR’s latest market study showed that recalls accounted for anywhere from 11% to 47% of vehicles sold in North America. Even excluding the very large Polaris recalls during those years, the percentages remained high for the rest of the market. Marc Cesare, Smallvehicleresource.com

  1. I need two things: First, a return call for messages I left for Jonathan Cook.
    Second, agreement that your company will either have a repair person come to my address to provide repair per this recall, or your company will pay to have the EZGo golf cart taken to an authorized dealer for appropriate repair.

    • We are not EZ-GO.We are a third-party website that provides information about vehicles from a wide range of manufacturers. You should contact EZ-GO or an EZ-GO dealer directly.

  2. I’m having the same concerns with this recall. Messages left for Jonathan Cook of Textron have gone unanswered and a representative from the department at Textron which handles warranty claims is telling me that they are not responsible for transportation.
