Recall of Mario Kart Ride-On Cars Due to Accelerator Pedal Jamming

Jakks’ Mario Kart Ride-On Racer Cars have been recalled due to an issue with the accelerator pedal. There have been 65 reports of the pedal jamming when clogged with debris, meaning the karts don’t stop when the pedal is released.

Jakks is issuing kart owners with free repair kits upon request that include a replacement pedal. If you own one of these karts and bought it from Amazon, Walmart, or Target between October 2022 and January 2024, you can contact Jakks to receive the free repair kit.

The safety commission revealed it has received 65 reports of the kart’s accelerator becoming jammed. Of those reports, 15 resulted in the car colliding with permanent structures.

One child suffered a minor injury as a result. If you own one of these karts, you can claim a free kit to fix it and make sure the problem doesn’t affect you.

If you can’t find a Mario Kart Ride-On Racer or the jamming accelerator pedal has put you off picking one up, then maybe stick to the regular games on which the ride-on car is based. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is the best-selling game on the Nintendo Switch, and now its Booster Course Pass expansions have all been added, so there are twice as many tracks in the game as there were at launch.
