E-ride Industries (E-ride) is recalling certain model year 2005-2016 EXV2 electric utility vehicles manufactured March 1, 2005, to July 29, 2016, and EXV4 electric utility vehicles manufactured March 3, 2005, to July 19, 2016. The affected vehicles may not be equipped with a red reflector on the back of the vehicle. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 500, "Low Speed Vehicles."
A missing red reflector on the rear vehicle can make the vehicle less visible to other drivers, increasing the risk of a crash.
E-ride will notify owners, and dealers will install a red reflector to both corners of the rear bumper, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in September 2016. Owners may contact E-ride customer service at 1-800-950-4351.
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
