We do have a gas Yamaha that we bought new 2014. My opinion-the cost is simply outrageous. It is essentially a riding lawn mower. Annual service at The Villages Golf Cart-spark plug,
oil change (1 qt) and air filter is $100 there is no oil filter. Probably no need to change the air filter every year. Compare that cost to your car.
No need to change air filter and spark plug for years. I have over 13,000 miles on my spark plug and the air filter. The 1st year the dealer did their annual tune-up and I requested the "old" plug and filter. Still looked new. When I need these to be replaced again I will use the original parts saved.

I sincerely appreciate all the responses and information provided.

Can anyone provide an actual invoice of a newly purchased Yamaha Gas Cart?

I'm curious as to how much is added to the invoice for all those "must-have" add on items such as bucket seats and curtains.
Thanks again !

I choose not to provide an invoice but I will tell you that the price for my 2019 Drive2 PTV (base and picked up at the dealer) was $6,300. I did not buy in TV. You can do your own math from there.

i just bought a really nice one owner used one. things that are perferred to include, seat belts - a MUST,
fuel injection-a WANT but not mandatory, runs and starts better, better fuel economy. fuel injection started around 2013-14
sunbrella or other side curtains that drop down, in a big rain you will need that
side mirrors
gas driven of course, not battery driven
locking glove box is nice, to secure garage door remote and other personal stuff
possibly auxillary light bar, mounted either on the roof or front bumper, if your area is dark and you will be out after sunset.
A folding rear seat is a nice feature if you expect a lot of company to visit.
side cooler
