  • RXV Owners, Weak Hip Restraint Prone to Fracture

    Almost 17,000 E-Z-GO RXV vehicles, both electric and gas manufactured after January 28, 2008 up until May 12, 2008 have received multiple complaints that the hip restraint located at both ends of the seat are prone to crack if excessive force is placed on them.



    A voluntary recall has been issued by E-Z-GO and a modified version can be installed by your local dealer at no cost to you. E-Z-GO states "When entering and exiting the golf car, please use caution and DO NOT LEAN on the hip restraint, as it may fracture if excessive force is applied and the rider could fall from the vehicle." The complete article can be viewed below.

    We recently received reports that the hip restraints on a small number of RXV golf cars have fractured. The safety of E-Z-GO’s customers and their guests is the Company’s top priority. Therefore, in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, the hip restraints on all RXV vehicles are being replaced. The replacement hip restraints are identical in strength and materials to those used without incident for years on the E-Z-GO TXT golf car.
    Unfortunately, there have been reports of a few minor injuries resulting from a hip restraint breaking. While we believe it is safe to continue to operate your vehicle, we want to take every precaution in ensuring the safety and comfort of you and your passengers. When entering and exiting the golf car, please use caution and DO NOT LEAN on the hip restraint, as it may fracture if excessive force is applied and the rider could fall from the vehicle. Please use the safety handle located on the vehicle top for additional support while entering, exiting, turning or stopping the golf car.
    E-Z-GO representatives will be contacting owners of RXV vehicles to arrange a time for our service technicians to, at no cost to them, replace the hip restraints on the golf cars.
