Thousands of Yamaha golf cars, personal transportation and specialty vehicles recalled

Yamaha is recalling about 16,000 vehicles including golf carts due to a fire hazard, according to the CPSC.

The CPSC says that the module that regulates the power to the vehicle’s USB ports can overheat and melt, posing a fire hazard.

The recall involves 2017-2019 models of golf carts, personal transportation, and specialty vehicles. The vehicles were sold exclusively at Yamaha golf car dealers nationwide from June 2016 through June 2019 for between $6,000 and $11,000.
