How Long Will My Golf Cart Last?

Posted in Golf Carts

If you are considering buying a new golf cart, you may wonder how long you can expect your purchase to last. While components can wear out, the vehicle itself can last for many decades. Both gas and electric golf carts have similar longevity expectations when it comes to their frames, but engines and other components can vary. Here are some factors that can impact whether your new golf cart is still running 30 years from now or needs replacement 7-10 years down the road.

Frame Material

Differing brands and models of golf carts may use steel or aluminum frames. Aluminum does not rust and can last much longer than steel but has other limitations. Steel can handle more weight and may be better for rougher terrain. Good paint can help protect steel from rusting and extend the life of golf carts with these types of frames.

Preventive Maintenance

Like any vehicle, a golf cart is an investment that is best protected by preventive maintenance. Tune-ups, brake service, battery care, new paint and other maintenance can help extend the life of your golf cart.

Type and Frequency of Use

It should be expected that a golf cart used for commercial purposes on a daily basis will wear out quicker than those used less frequently for recreational use. Heavier loads, rougher terrain and higher speeds will all impact the longevity of the vehicle.

For most people, a well-maintained golf cart used for recreational or private purposes can last for 30-40 years. However, it is common for owners to trade in their models after several years to upgrade to a newer vehicle. To learn more on how to make your golf cart last as long as possible, talk to your local golf cart dealer.

5 Features to Consider for Your New Golf Cart

Posted in Golf Carts

Whether you are buying a golf cart for the course or for personal transportation, you want to ensure you get the right features for your needs. Just like any vehicle you buy, golf carts have a wide variety of feature options to make them more versatile and comfortable. From stereos and heaters to street legal options, you can customize your golf cart to meet your expectations. Here are five features to consider when ordering your new golf cart.

  1. Wheels. You have many options on the wheels and tires for your golf cart. If you want a customized look, low profile tires and custom wheels can transform the look of your cart. Going on trails or in the woods? Consider off-road tires for better traction.
  2. Street legal kits. Give your golf cart more versatility with a street legal kit that can transform your cart into an economical vehicle to use on the road.
  3. Custom paint. If you don’t want to settle for the standard golf cart colors, opt for a customized paint job that can reflect your unique style.
  4. Amenities. What will make you more comfortable in your golf cart? Fans, heaters, stereos and other amenities can make your new cart a joy to spend time in.
  5. Safety features. It may be just a golf cart but you still want to be safe when driving around the course, neighborhood or property. Rear view mirrors, extended windshields and other safety features can protect you and your passengers.

Get the golf cart that will meet all your function and style expectations. Talk to your local golf cart dealer about packages and pricing for adding the features that will make your new golf cart reflect your personality and needs.

3 Options to Consider Adding to Your New Golf Cart

Posted in Golf Carts

Are you ready to invest in a new golf cart? Whether your new cart will actually head to the golf course or it will be used in another capacity for recreation or business, there are many options you can choose to customize your cart. The new golf carts available are far more advanced and have many features that can benefit you as an owner. Before you begin shopping for your new golf cart, consider these three options that could make your new vehicle more versatile.

  1. Street legal kits. Make your golf cart into economical transportation with a street legal kit. Even if you plan on using it mostly on the course or on your property, having your cart street legal adds value and can be useful for quick trips around the neighborhood.
  2. Comfort features. Cup holders, heaters and stereos are standard in cars, but not necessarily in golf carts. However, almost anything available for your car is also available in golf carts, just as custom options, not standard.
  3. Tires and wheels. You can opt for off road tires or larger wheels on your new golf cart, giving you more options where you can take your new cart. Larger wheels with better traction on your tires allows for more clearance to go into more rugged terrain.

Don’t settle for a plain golf cart when you can customize your new cart with all the newest options. Talk to your golf cart dealer about all the new features that are available for your new golf cart and make it exactly the way you want before you buy it.
