Other difference I have noticed is the Yamaha has more room, which only matters if you are taller like I am. My wife is short and can reach the pedals easier in the Club Car. The Yamaha also runs quiter. The steering is much tighter on the Club Car and doesen't float a little like the Yamaha. If we could only have one cart I would definitely go with the Yamaha. I can't justify getting a new cart since we have two relatively new carts already, but someday I want one of the newer Yamaha quiet- tech gas carts. A friend has one and it is a pleasure to ride in. The quiet-tech eliminates the main advantage of owning an electric cart, the noise difference between gas and electric.
Thank you

Any time I hear a golf car has that many issues, Its mechanic related. You find the right shop and you don't have the issues. No way a new cart like that needed 1500 bucks worth of work.

I believe it has been sold or is under new management AND THEY NO LONGER WILL GIVE APPOINTMENTS TO PEOPLE WHO DID NOT BUY FROM THEM.

As to clutches and belts. We also have a 2015 fuel injected Yamaha. NOT AN EXPERT-we were impressed with Villages Golf Cart that a year after we bought the cart-from another dealer, they replaced the drive belt at n/c under warranty. Seems Yamaha used some incorrect belts.
The replacement is wider.

Unfortunately, I am being forced to find another place to get my cart serviced and would appreciate suggestions.
actually, they are required (as are all dealers of new equipment) to service any cart under warranty regardless of where it was bought.

But do not expect to be placed ahead of the people who bought their cart there.

Golf carts are covered under the lemon law. You can find the info on the internet. We had a golf cart from the Villages golf cart that was a lemon and they honored the lemon law.

In my opinion, there is still nothing quieter than an electric cart. The ride is smoother also in an electric cart. Sis owns a Yamaha quiet tech and it can't compare to the ride quality and quietness of our Yamaha electric cart.

I came down in December and got Dad a substantial discount on a Yamaha, not club car, that he is very happy with. He's happy so I'm happy.

Agree, until it runs out of juice, then the ride is bumpy and louder when getting towed by a gas cart. Already towed two electric carts in 2019. One guy insisted on driving when we paired up for golf, so to be a good sport I went along with it. After 12 holes the cart died! I will never get into someones electric cart again for a round of golf, paying winter rates, I like to finish the round without worries.
