Question What to look for in a used golf cart?

Hello,

I'll be soon looking for a used Yamaha gas cart. Outside of personal preferences (color, seats, accessories, etc) what should I be looking for or aware of?

Service records if they are available, mileage or hours, efi, check tires for even wear do all the lights function.

Where/how do you check mileage or hours?

Not in all cases, the ones that have the bicycle speedometers once the battery goes dead it starts from zero again.

Take a test drive up a hill to see that it doesn’t slow down too much.
