CPSC, SoloRider Industries Announce Recall of Single Rider Golf Carts

PRODUCT: Golf Carts - SoloRider Industries Inc., of Englewood, Colo. is voluntarily recalling about 200 SoloRider AteeA Model 32 golf carts. The AteeA model 32 is a single rider electric golf cart that came in hunter green, or Daytona white. The four-wheeled cart has dual-hand controls, a front-mounted golf bag rack, and a seat basket mounted on the back of the seat. Serial numbers that begin with 32 can be located on a label on the frame of the vehicle near the left front tire. The golf carts were sold nationwide at SoloRider and other golf dealers. The golf carts were sold from October 1999 through March 2000 for $5,000.00 to $9,000.00.

PROBLEM: The golf cart's software can be corrupted by static electricity allowing it to move forward without assistance. Riders or bystanders could suffer injuries.
