We bought a reconditioned electric Club Car from Golf Cart Connection and are very pleased . As someone mentioned earlier, there are a number of threads related to this subject and all are worth reading before proceeding with a purchase.

I went the same route as "The Great Fumar", we have two Club Car electrics, several friends have gas, I just can't get past the smell and noise of gas. Wife came home the other day after golfing with a friend who has a gas cart and changed clothes as soon as she got home because she smelled like exhaust, and they just bought their cart six months ago, just my .02 cents.

Has anyone done a cost analysis on the gas vs electric golf cart over a five year period?

That is, the cost of routine maintenance, repairs, and operating expense including having the batteries replaced on the electric cart.

Purchase price not included.

Golfnut, That is what I thought. I have a neighbor that owns a gas Yamaha. Lots of fumes.

If you're a snowbird, how do you store your electric cart over the summer months?

We purchased an EZ-GO gas and love it. We now have it forsale because it's a two seater and we want a four. Found that it's cheaper to get a new one rather than convert. It's posted on the 'for sale' forum. Just a note on fumes. That argument strikes me as somewhat disingenuous because it is not very noticable IN the cart, and you can get a pretty good whiff in your electric as you go through the tunnels. So really, it's a question of efficiency, features, etc.

Which brand has the most leg room, I'm 6'6" I'm ok with any cart I get at a golf course, but if I'm buying my own I want the one with the most interior room?

opbob77 - You're right it would be disingenuous if we only cared about ourselves. So what you're saying is that the smell doesn't bother YOU because the smell is trailing you as you go down the road? I haven't experienced it myself as i haven't driven a cart down there yet - I'll let you know my opinion (not that anyone cares) after my preview visit.

stjade,

I bought a 4 seater electric Star cart about 6 months ago. Thus far have been very pleased with it and you certainly can't beat the price. Check out Golf Cart Connections web site and read what the Star offers.
