I looked at the atomic cart yesterday. Very comfortable and loaded with extras that you wouldn't believe. The only drawback I could see was a max of 80 miles on a single charge, and that was not using any of the accessories, ie: a/c or heat--headlights--power windows--radio, etc. Very reasonable priced, also.

What is the estimated cost of replacing batteries when the time comes?

I'd want to take a golf cart as the primary source of transportation. For me, that's the whole point of building a "golf cart community." In my fantasy world, cars would be restricted to moving in and moving out, and garages would be placed outside on the community perimeter and not allowed in any other time.

Of course that'd mean it would need to be a much smaller community, because at the Villages now, it can take more than an hour to get from point A to point B in a golf cart.

Taking a golf cart from point A to Point B is a large reason why a lot of us moved here. But there is a lot of weaving involved that makes a really long trip less desirable. So my cart driving is limited to about 30 - 40 minutes each way.

We are situated just north of LSL which gives us easy access to all 3 squares and everything in between by golf cart and is the reason we selected that location.

My back will only take so much pounding crossing the street drains and speed bumps. So about 5 miles one way enough for me, unless I have no other transportation options

Weather permitting I go just about everywhere in my golf cart. In the high season I tend to avoid the Morse Avenue (north of 466) and the strip malls on 441. The traffic is just too scary. Golf carting is a great way to see The Villages!

I prefer the golf cart almost indecently of the weather. I can get where ever I want to go with 2 or three miles or 15 minutes. I could see driving 30 minutes but that could be a problem in the cold or rain. So I would say 15 minute drive is preferred

Highly dependent on weather and how the cart is equipped. We first moved here into a rental that included a cart, but it had the original seats. The very first week I found a used Yamaha that had the high end adjustable seats with armrests. The seats make a huge difference. After riding the rental cart for 20 to 30 minutes, I felt like I needed to get off and rest. The cart with the upgraded seats I sometimes feel I could ride it all day and be comfortable. I would ride from most anywhere in TV to anywhere else in TV by cart as long as travel time is not an issue, and that includes once they open up the trails and bridges to/from the Southern Oaks area.
