Default Re: '03 IQ is a still a Nightmare

A friend had an '06 Precident in for service yesterday. The front wheel bearings fell out in pieces. CC doesn't sell wheel bearings for this cart you buy hub assemblies. Bullshit! MInd you, the cart is only 3 yrs old..... The engineers have just made a simple golf cart too complicated IMHO.
The have attempted to make the carts IDIOT proof with features like roll away protection which when they go bad has made the techs job a nightmare .... just like your car today.
Cars in their simple form were something that the average person could use and repair to their own satifaction for decades.... that's not so anymore.
I believe ....... Everything new is not better

I agree! The reason these D@*% things are getting so complicated is because some engineer has to justify keeping his job.
So for all those out there beating the "Technology is better Drum"....You can sit there on your broken down "NEW" Precident with all its bells and whistles....While I cruise by smiling on my series cart.

This add does not express or implie Bionics personal feelings towards engineers.

You hit that nail on the head! They reduced the number of parts relative to the DS and raised the price of the cart BIG time. That makes sense (to CC). I'm sure that was easy to sell to their Board of Directors. Next you will have to buy a chassis if you want to replace an axle.

Agreed not all new technology is good Agreed cart/car engineers over engineer to a point of ridiculous Also feel that they will engineer to a point of stupidity, and then take 2 steps backwards and re-engineer to a point of feasability and reliability. At least thats what we all could hope for right...time will tell

Agreed.....I just can't figure why they take something as good as the DS, write it off, and start with a clean slate. The DS is an awesome platform. If they were worried about the Yami Drive when it came out and the Emerge hurting their sales.....Why not re-body the DS if the styling was so dated? If it ain't broke.....

Well as long as they don't get as bad as computers and TV's which are now designed
to be discarded after use , we'll be OK !
I remember when they started using sealed grease fittings on cars , I thought what a stupid Idea , Where's the Alemite ????
