GM Recalls Hummer Golf Carts to Fix Built-In Ball Finders That Don’t Find Owners’ Balls
DETROIT, MI — Citing problems with the in-dash golf ball finders and consumer complaints that it was not helping them finding their balls, General Motors today recalled all Hummer H2 Golf Cart models.
“Here at GM, we take it very seriously when Hummer owners don’t know where their balls went,” said GM CEO Mary Barsa to The New York Times.
“We have also had concerns raised about there only being 4 cup-holders and we will be adding 4 additional ones.”
The 541-pound Hummer H2 Golf Cart was a limited production vehicle but GM estimates 64,000 have been sold.
“We have been in contact with all golf courses that use the Hummer H2 but those only represent about 16,000 vehicles,” said Barsa.
“The Hummer H2 is a very popular way to get around in gated communities…mostly um…retirees. So we are now advertising in Florida newspapers and on late-night TV…Golden Girls re-runs…that sort of show.”
“This is not a safety issue. This a quality of life issue,” Barsa summed up.
General Motors has recently recalled more than 4.1 vehicles and is under investigation for knowingly allowing faulty ignition parts to be installed on those vehicles, allegedly resulting in 13 deaths.
