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.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at 1-800-774-3946, or click here for more information on the Safety Recall Alert.
Like all E-Z-GO vehicles, the E-Z-GO® RXV™ and Freedom® RXV were designed from the ground-up with the safety and security of its operators and passengers of paramount importance. The RXV incorporates technology unavailable in any other golf car to ensure that its passengers remain safe from injury.
The electric RXV features an industry-first automatic parking brake to prevent dangerous rollaway situations, and also features a state-of-the-art automatic braking system that allows the vehicle to brake automatically on steep grades, controlling the vehicle’s speed and providing a safe and secure ride for driver and passenger.
Unlike any other golf car, the RXV features 360-degree energy-transfer bumpers that are rated to withstand impacts of up to 5 mph without significant damage.
But no safety features, however advanced, can replace the precautions and common sense of a responsible driver and passenger. Although by no means a comprehensive list, the tips and recommendations on this page can help ensure that drivers and passengers of E-Z-GO vehicles remain safe and enjoy their E-Z-GO experience.
