Golf cart recalled

WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Consumer Protection Safety Commission, or CPSC, published information concerning a recall of Garia two-passenger golf carts. Garia Golf & Courtesy electric vehicles are battery-powered and could erupt into flames if a fuse overheats while the vehicle is recharging. A fire, especially when the vehicle is parked in a garage, poses a tremendous risk of injury or death to the homeowners, in addition to property massive property losses. The CPSC, in its publication issued recently, reported that 1,000 Garia golf carts must be recalled. Garia said that the company would repair the fuse problem without charging the customer. Consumer Affairs said that five golf carts have overheated and burst into flames. At the time of this article, there have been no injuries reported in those incidents.

Garia’s recall campaign involves 1,000 golf carts from model years 2010 to 2019. The specific models under recall are Garia’s Golf, Golf 2+2, Courtesy 4+2, and Courtesy 4. Although the vehicles are made in Denmark, Garia dealers from across the United States sold them from January 2010 to September 2019 for $15,000.00 to $75,000.00.

Garia advised customers to stop charging the vehicles immediately. Additionally, owners of the recalled golf carts must contact a local Garia dealer or Garia to schedule free maintenance, which will repair the overheating fuse issue.

Collective life experience informs us that fire spreads fast. According to Ready.gov, home fires can go from a spark to a major fire in about 30 seconds, depending on the conditions. The heat generated by a house fire is unfathomable. Floor-level temperatures quickly rise to 100 degrees in a fire. The temperatures reach a lung-searing 600 degrees at eye level. Inhaling 600-degree heat will scorch lung tissue and melt clothing to skin.

Three-times as many people die from smoke inhalation than burns in a house fire. The thick, acrid smoke generated by a house fire emits toxins that cause disorientation and confusion. The toxins also deprive you of air. Asphyxiation is the primary reason people die in house fires in the U.S.
