Club Car Has Recalled the Pathway
- Club Car Has Recalled the Pathway because the vehicle fails to
comply with federal standards.
Number of Units Affected: 3552
Manufactured: 06/2002 - 08/2002
CERTAIN 2-PASSENGER, OPEN BODY, VEHICLES FAIL TO COMPLY WITH REQUIREMENTS
FOR FEDERAL MOTOR VEHICLE SAFETY STANDARD NO. 500, "LOW-SPEED VEHICLES."
ELECTRICAL RELAYS RATED FOR 12-VOLTS HAVE BEEN INSTALLED IN PLACE OF RELAYS
RATED FOR 48-VOLTS.
THE 12-VOLT RELAYS SUBSEQUENTLY FAIL DUE TO OVERVOLTAGE, RENDERING THE BRAKE
LIGHTS INOPERABLE. INOPERABLE BRAKE LAMPS WILL INCREASE THE RISK OF A CRASH
TO THE REAR OF THE VEHICLE WHEN OPERATED IN TRAFFIC CONDITIONS.
CLUB CAR WILL PROVIDE FIELD TEAMS TO PERFORM THE INSPECTION AND REPLACE
PARTS AS REQUIRED WITHOUT CHARGE TO THE OWNER OR END USER. OWNER
NOTIFICATION IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN DURING AUGUST 2002. OWNERS WHO DO NOT
RECEIVE THE FREE REMEDY WITHIN A REASONABLE TIME SHOULD CONTACT CLUB CAR AT
1-800-258-2227, EXTENSION 3820.

Regarding Auto Recalls
Frequently SafetyAlerts will list
auto recalls before
your dealer will know about them. If you have a vehicle
affected by one of these posted recalls be sure and
write down the NHTSA
CAMPAIGN ID Number.
If your dealer doesn't know about the recall when you
check, ask them how they are notified of recalls and
when the next update is due.
