Used Gas Power Golf Cart
Consider a used gas power golf cart if you are in the market for buying a gas golf cart. They are not as readily available as the electric golf cart since most used carts come from golf courses that are replacing their fleet of golf cars. Some areas ban gas golf carts because they are not environmentally friendly, so be sure to find out if this is true in your state or county.
The major advantage of a gas golf cart is the ability to go long distances and for a longer length of time. You can carry extra gas with you to replenish your fuel - with an electric cart once the charge is used up, the only way to get it going again is to get back home to charge it over night.
Questions for the Seller
You can save a lot of money buying a used gas golf cart if you know what to look for and what questions to ask the seller. Here are some guidelines:
1. How old is the cart
2. How was it used - how often
3. What parts of been replaced or repaired
4. What kind of maintenance was provided and how often
5. What accessories are included? Golf cart cover, enclosure, radio, heater, etc.
6. Is there a warranty, if the seller is a dealer,and how long is it good for
After a thorough inspection and a satisfactory test drive (include a ride up a hill with an extra passenger or two) don't be afraid to consider a used golf cart.
Why Buy a Used Gas Power Golf Cart?
Why buy a used cart instead of a new one?
1. Significant Savings
Used golf carts can provide significant savings over buying a new one - often they can be half of what you would pay for a new one. A golf cart that has been used can typically run around $2,000 - $3,000. A new golf cart will start at around $5,000 - buying used can save you a lot of money.
2. Provides reliable and solid performance
A well maintained used gas power golf cart can provide the same performance and reliability as a new cart. However, this does requires that you do some checking and ask some questions.
What to Inspect and Check
So be sure to:
1. Find the serial number - the number tells you the age of the golf cart
2. Inspect the golf cart body for rust, scratches, damage, or roof leaks
3. Inspect the engine. The 4 cycle engine is preferable over the older 2 cycle engine
4. Check the tires for wear
5. Take the golf cart for a test drive including a hill, or with a load of people to see how well it can handle it. Test the brakes, acceleration, turning, stability, play in the steering wheel and the battery charge.
7. Consider only used golf carts from well-known companies like Club, EZ Go and Yamaha. If you buy a cart made by a company you have never heard of, you will have a hard time finding replacement parts.
