Thanks. I was there on Friday. They have a huge facility for maintenance work. Who does service on your cart in TV land?

By the way, we've lived in Florida for over 30 years now, but up until two years ago, we had a little cabin in Lancaster County, PA.

Thanks everyone for your feedback. I'd like to hear from Tomberlin owners, if there is anyone who currently owns one. My main concern would be maintenance, but I understand there are a few people who come to one's home and does the maintenance. Perhaps I will contact them to see if they work on the Tomberlin..

Ben:

Did you get your new cart and, if so, what did you choose? Wondering if you went with the Tomberlin. I saw one at LSL tonight and really thought it looked spiffy with some neat features.

I don't understand why some people put themselves into situations that can later cause stress. What's the big deal? It's a golf cart. Buy a Yamaha or a Club Car. If you like something fancy, buy a Street Rod. Make life easy. Local service, free loaner. What else do you need? No I do not work for any golf cart dealer. I have never had any problems with my 2007 electric Club Cart or my Yamaha gas cart.

My point, if the cart uses custom parts, you are at their mercy for repairs and replacement.
You may want to check with companies that repair carts. The original charger can be had for much less.

Just took delivery of my second Star Cart...love it. Also have a ParCar and the service location is Nexus in Fruitland Park. They also sell Tomberlin. The service I received was excellent so I have to assume they are also excellent for Tomberlin Service. I also believe that Mellon's Golf Carts sells and services Tomberlin, also in Fruitland park, have no experience there but gives you a competitive view if you are fixed on Tomberlin.
