Default Best Yamaha carts

I own 2 Yamaha Drive gas carts - a 2010 and a 2017 Quietech. It seems the older cart requires much less service. It is a project to even replace a battery on the Quietech carts. You need to remove the bag well and left side body panel.
How about a discussion as to which year Yamaha was the best?

We just ordered a remanufactured 2019 so hoping it was a good year and for how much we're paying hopefully will outlast me!

2012 1/2 fuel injected. Battery-piece of cake, oil change 10 mins., 12K miles 1 tie rod replaced, set belts, and two tires. Belts wasn’t gone yet, tire I ruined running rear pressure too low.

Wasn't 2017 the first year for Qtech??
Never buy the first couple of years of "new stuff".

Like, don't buy the first year of the new Vette.

I replaced a battery on my 2018 quietech and it was a pull out drop in. No panels removed. I do say though, my 2010 just takes a licking and keeps on ticking. Lots of miles and done almost nothing but change the oil and new tires. Over 30,000 miles.

I have a Yamaha 2015 Fuel injected and a 2014 Carb model, both run excellent. For you owners like me who are new to the Villages.
I could not understand why Owners would go to The Villages Golf Cart Center in Sumter Landing to purchase gas when the prices are higher then most gas stations in the area. Very Simple Answer. They are selling gas with NO ETHANOL. Ethanol will clog up your fuel system especially the older carb models. I think it is worth the slightly higher price for No Ethanol gasoline. Any comments?

I have a 2013 rebuilt in 2017 and love it. Willie does all the maintenance on it and very few repairs other than yearly maintenance. Have replaced battery, drive belt and turn signal flasher.

Ethanol doesn’t clog fuel lines they are made to run on it
Ethanol is a corrosive if you don’t not have stainless steel lines and the correct seals it will damage them
All modern vehicles are made to run on alcohol

Look at your manual …..

Yamaha recommends REGULAR UNLEADED fuel containing no more than 10 % ethanol…..

However, if it makes you feel better paying more for “recreational” fuel , go for it ! However, your cart won’t know the difference !!

I recently traded in my 2014 Yamaha gas for a 2020 Quietech. The new one is much quieter as it is supposed to be, bu the ride is so much better also. Independent suspension, self cancelling turn signals, much larger cooler, high and low beam headlight, LED trim lights. Much more enjoyable to drive. When it comes time to replace the battery, I’ll be able to do it myself, but that will be a few years from now.

Non-Ethanol gas is probably cheaper at the Marathon stations in Lake Deaton and Pinellas Plaza.
