The only killer deal you’re going to get is on used one. There out there if you know what you’re looking at? If you can’t find a dipstick they full new MarkUp may be the killer deal?

Apart from one $14,000 new car I bought for my ex-wife, I’ve never bought a new car, and neither have my kids. I buy a car two or three years old owned by a little old lady that has 30,000 miles on it and a good warranty and drive it another 200,000 miles. I save a third on the price.
If it was My ex? I‘d probably buy her Yugo!

Where did you find the bucket seats that recline and move forward and back for $800? They are normally $1800. Thanks in advance for the info.

Good point. Country Village Power Equipment in Webster offered everything I wanted and needed except the self cancelling turn signals. I figured I did not need them and so far have lived without that almost $300.00 feature very well. Country Village Power offered the easy on/off snaps that I was not able to get at other dealers. These snaps are much easier to snap on/off than the ones featured at other dealers. I got the fancy "El Tigre" seats, the Sunbrella enclosure, the mirrors with the turn signals built in. seat belts (front and rear), golf bag carrier, cigarette lighter plug (cheap and recommend it), usb charger, cooler, flip down vented windshield, LED lighting, front overhead tray, and all the other accessories I wanted and saved over $3000.00. I also got my choice of color, white, which the Villages Golf Cars wanted to charge me $400.00 more for. Lastly, mine is a Yamaha factory four seater, not a two seater converted to a four seater. Not sure if it makes a difference but I felt more comfortable with the factory equipment.

As I mentioned in earlier post, couldn't be happier with the after the purchase service. They delivered my golf car to my driveway. They also performed the first scheduled maintenance in my driveway for $60.00, which I understand is much cheaper than the competition. I much rather have my golf car serviced in my driveway than to get a free loaner to drive around in while my car is being serviced somewhere else.

The Villages Golf Car did offer free use of a golf car anywhere in The Villages (I live south of 44). While it is a nice benefit, I realized that right now I would not be using it too often as the squares (etc.) are closed. Once the bridge over the turnpike is open, that offer is over according to what I was told.

If you are asking about Country Village Power Equipment, they have two locations according to their website, Plant City and Webster. Not sure where Plant City is, but Webster is about 20 minutes south of Fenney. You take 301 South and go left where it splits off just south of 470 (I think the road you go on is 471). From there it is a straight shot south. The address for CVPE is 599 N Market Blvd, Webster. The phone number is (352) 793-3948.

Good luck with finding a 2021 golf cart for $10 grand. Did you want one with a steering wheel and a motor? I paid $15k 2 years ago for a quiet tech gas cart with several options I considered necessary. Seat belts, horn, illuminated turn signals in side mirrors, LED lights, Sunbrella package and more. Bought from The Villages for convenience. They give you a rental when repair work is done and are great to work with.

My golf cart insurance is $88 per year (Progressive through The Villages Insurance) and I get a tad over 50 miles per gallon.

Progressive has pretty good rates. We pay $88 per year and I have the value of the cart set at $5000.

we pay $70 for full coverage - a year - with Progressive. Have a Tomberlin cart.

Re the OP topic - the profit margin on Carts -esp with Villages GC- is HUUUGE. Captive audience, but good to have competition inside and out of TV. That's good capitalism.

Default Villages Golf Cars Prices

I bought one used club car electric, one brand new club car gas with a Curtis cab,
Two brand new Yamaha Fuel injected with one quiet tech. A few weeks ago I decided I need a cab for long drives from the very last house to be built in Fenney And over the bridge that never seems to be completed and the shopping center that is taking more than three years to build.
So I SWAM into Villages Golf Cars and was immediately and cordially presented with various forms of bait. Remarkably there was a brand new Yamaha with all kinds of nice added options. The fisherman made a great pitch for the emblem laughter ( oops I mean light) on the front! Do the turn signals cancel? NO!
Why I ask because they do on the Yamaha carts at the store on 466. After I listen to all the reasons why VILLAGES Golf carts are greater than stainless steal lures I am guided to a cart with a price tag a bit higher than 17k!
ENOUGH! A brand new Ford Focus costs less!
Ok, Ok I am a sucker. If it was the very last Yamaha like our very last house I may have taken the bait but I still have to pay my BOND!

Is there a way to get one from out-of-area for less or is trying to pay significantly less sorta like wishing unicorns can run free up and down Morse avenue? Thanks for any tips you can share

Come Joe! Bite the bullet and buy a nice golf cart. We are on our second one and bought it loaded in Brownwood. Sunroof, roll bar, backup screen, blue tooth and alot of other stuff. You'll love driving it and it's cheap to run!!!

I suggest you shop round for cart insurance....yes you can get it for less than $90. AAA is a good example if you are already a AAA member 😎
