Textron has recalled numerous golf carts due to a crash hazard.

Consumers should stop using the recalls immediately.

The recall, posted by the Consumer Product Safety Commission, states the parking brake catch bracket can wear out and cause the parking brake to fail on the E-Z-GO PTVs and Tracker Off-Road vehicles.

This can pose a crash hazard.

The company plans to repair the sold units and is contacting its customers.

About 6,000 units were sold. They were manufactured between March 1 and June 10 of this year.

Recalled vehicles include the E-Z-GO Express S2, S4, S6 and L6, the E-Z-GO Freedom TXT, Valor and the Tracker Off-Road OX 400.
