I found one in good condition in about ten days for $5,300 out the door. Sometimes you have to go to different stores to see them. The service on mine included oil change, high speed gear, tires, windshield, wheels... It includes a loaner.
Depending when you bought it the price seems high

Regarding golf cart engine life, it will depend a lot on maintenance. Yamaha does warranty their golf cart engines for 5000 hours if you use Yamalube and follow their maintenance schedule. For most people, this will be around 80K miles. I doubt many people will keep a cart that long but the message is that I doubt engine life will be an issue if you do the recommended maintenance.

We use ours 12 months a year.

We have 2 Par Car golf carts. 2014 and 2016 (No longer being made.) Couple of comments.
1) Both carts look like they are new. I live in Osceola Hills and drive to the courses at the North end of TV and never have had a problem. But...I don't have a stereo or a heater which will reduce the range.
2) While I replaced with the batteries on the 2014 cart with lead acid, I will probably go with lithium in the future.
3) When looking at electric carts, buy one that is 48 volt system. Some of the older ones were 36 volt systems and don't have the power and the distance of a 48 volt system - which is why the lore often says that electric carts don't have the ability to go the distance.

Good luck and have fun!

I have a 1999 electric Club Car. A mechanic told me that 1995-2000 were the best years for Club Cars. He also said if you have a problem they are worth fixing and the parts are getting cheaper. You can keep them forever (figure of speech I would imagine). I agree. I later bought a 2001 electric Club Car as a second golf cart. I will also have it for a long long time.

A couple things to consider:

1. Will you be buying Gas or Electric?
2. Will you be modifying the cart at all?
3. How well has the cart been maintained?

If you are going GAS: We recommend going fuel injected. And if you can afford it, choose the Yamaha QuieTech powered models (very quiet gas carts).

If you are going ELECTRIC: Any cart will do, as long as maintained well.

If you will be adding modifications to your cart (rear seat, windshield, etc.), then going with a cart that is a few years older is best (like 2010-2016). The reason is, the longer a cart is on the market the more aftermarket Golf Cart Accessories that will have been produced for it. Many newer carts don't have lift kits or other accessories available for them.

Our personal shop cart is a 2007 EZGO TXT that is maintained like new. Lots of mods available from all aftermarket manufacturers for it.

Here is a golf cart buyer's guide we also hope helps: Buying the Best Golf Cart - Buyer's Guide | GCTS
