Default New Golf Cart Purchase Inquiry / Suggestions

Greetings-

I am in the process of purchasing a new Yamaha Gas powered Golf Cart and would appreciate some assistance. Since there appears to be a wide variety and a vast difference in cost, I am seeking advice on which "basic" model to purchase, location to purchase and what is a fair amount to spend.

I’m willing to purchase outside The Villages if I can save a few bucks. A specific model number and any suggestion's of “must-add” items would also be helpful. Any suggestions are sincerely appreciated.

I thank you in advance for your assistance….

Buying New? Carts and Clubs in Ocala...go to their showroom and let them show you how they are made and what the basic and extras are. We bought new last November from them so the quiet EFI and deluxe high back seats with padded armrests were high on our list for sound and comfort. That was after 8 yrs of driving a 2010 rebuilt. Depends on how much you think you will be driving it too! Good Luck!
We love ours!!!

Just ordered a new cart from Carts and Clubs on Tuesday; bought it from Peggy.

I bought my Drive2 PTV in Gadsden AL and saved about $2,000 compared to TV and Ocala. Carts and Clubs are nice folks and seem honest but they still have a pretty hefty mark up. Buying in TV you will pay a very hefty mark up. Many folks choose to pay it for the convenience of preferred service.

BTW, I bought my El Tigre seats at Carts and Clubs for a reasonable price. Took me about 15 minutes to install them- literally just 4 easily accessible bolts.

I bought a 2019 Yamaha in Alabama, had it shipped in. 6950 all in, by this I mean shipping, tax, everything. This was a very basic cart, no windshield, no extras. I added exactly what I wanted, some items came from local dealers, some on-line. Saved thousands.

I could get any color Yamaha sold, not just white. Other than the color selection there wasn't much to discuss with the dealership. There was nothing special about this dealership. I am posting the price so you can judge for yourself if local dealers are giving you a "great" price.

Edit to add: this was a new gas Yamaha, with the high speed gearing, just like any cart in TV.

I have been to that dealership, if you saw it in person you would not be impressed. Not that this matters. They clearly are not in the business of impressing retail customers.

Carts and Clubs is the best place to buy a new cart. Several extras that are worth the price. They are lower than The Villages, but you can also buy a cart cheaper and have it shipped here, then do the add on's yourself. However they do some very nice things to a cart. All wiring is upgraded to one size larger. This is very important if you ever add any extras like a fan or radio. All fuses are located right under driver seat in a single fuse block. If you have ever spent hours looking for fuse in all the other dealers cart you will understand the value this has. Extra insulation around the engine so it is even quieter than other quiet tech carts. All LED lighting and dome light. Extra snaps on the enclosure, extra entry space because of enclosure design, and better seals around the windows. Window split is lower for better visibility. Zipper on drivers side for gate card or button entry so you don't have to open the side up when it's cold or raining.

Many little things that add lots of value to a cart. And they have a couple service vans in the Villages every day and do the service in your driveway. If nothing else, go up and check them out and see for yourself.
