Hardkore Karts has issued a recall for golf carts due to multiple safety issues.

The manufacturer is voluntarily recalling certain model year 2009-2013 Club Car Precedent golf carts equipped with the street package. These vehicles do not have a vehicle identification number (VIN), certification label, or DOT compliant windshield. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of 49 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 567, "Certification."

In the event of a crash, a non-compliant windshield may have an increased risk of occupant injury compared to a DOT-compliant, safety-glass windshield.

The company believes that about 35 carts are potentially defective.

Hardkore Karts will notify owners, and provide a VIN, the correct certification label and install the correct windshield, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule.

Owners with questions about this recall can contact Hardkore Karts customer service at (877) 796-5501.
