Textron Specialized Vehicles, maker of E-Z-GO and Cushman products, has announced a recall for gas-powered cars produced between January 20, 2015 through May 5, 2015. There is a flaw in the fuel tank on the affected models that can cause a gas leak posing a fire hazard.
The affected vehicles include the E-Z-GO TXT golf cars, TXT 2+2 shuttle, Freedom TXT golf car, Valor, Express, and terrain vehicles. Also affected are the Cushman Shuttle, HD, LTO, and LT Safari models. If you own one of these cars, you are urged to call your nearest E-Z-GO or Cushman dealer for a free warranty repair. Textron also recommends that if you use your vehicle prior to having repairs performed, you should not fill the fuel tank over half-capacity.
If you purchased a 2015 E-Z-GO or Cushman gas-powered car and are unsure if your car is included in the recall, you can check the date code, located below the choke handle. The affected cars range from code G2015 to L0515.
