Maybe he will deal on it with you. Cant hurt to try... I am curious what the market is like elswhere because here the local economy is very strong. Booming in fact, so people are willing to pay. Look around and see what else is there. You'll be looking at 700-800 for a new set of 6 good batts. Trojan T105s just went to 129.00 each here. Welcome to BGW by the way and keep us updated.

Well, if YOU feel it is a good deal, then go for it . . know that a rear seat kit will run about $300 or so from one of the site sponsors (unless you find a good used one with all the hardware) plus whatever you decide on batteries . . the lift kit/wheels saved you probably $500+ . . .

I am in the Cincinnati area. In the winter is the time to buy here. When I was looking in the summer I couldn't believe the prices. I feel like this would be a good deal for me as long as the 12v wont actually hurt the cart. He could have not even listed the kind of batteries it had and most buyers around here would never know the difference I suppose. I emailed him and he said he gets 10 mile between charges.

I would personally take that statement with a grain of salt . . . as with any used vehicle, seller may exaggerate a little, but I never really measured how far a cart would go on a charge because I plug mine in after each/every use. . .

I agree, in fact I take anything anyone says with a grain of salt when they are wanting to sell me somthing. I'm not sure how he measured his ten miles. If it can last a full weekend driving around the campsite I would be happy. Campsite is about the size of a football field and is on the river. Would be ridden maybe 2 hours a day? Just going to the restroom and other campers.

Hi Xander,

I certainly agree with an immediate battery pack replacement. But, whether the price is good or not is a rather subjective question and would be based on the condition of the cart. (By the way it looks like it is in descent shape externally)

You would certainly not want to have to invest more of your hard earned money into getting it repaired just after purchasing it, where it isn’t an F.O.R.D. nightmare. Also, another question to ask your self is, “How long will I have this cart and will it hold up?”

To me, no matter what the price was (the lower the price the better), I asked myself when I bought my 2007 Club Car in 2009 (at $3000.00) do I like the thing as is? My answer was yes! Is the cart worth the price to me? My answer was yes! Well, after looking under the hood and kicking the tires a few times, I bought it!

The moral of this story is don’t settle for less than you are expecting or want, even if it costs a little more than expected.

It seems that in your case not only do you need to sell yourself on the purchase, but you will need to sell your wife on this purchase also. Take her along to see what your into and explain the in’s and out’s on the carts you look at and more importantly, let her drive it.

Just my two cents!

Happy hunting!

Thanks for the replys guys! To me it would be worth it as long as the batteries won't hurt the cart. From what I am egging they will drain fast and go bad quickly but not hurt the cart? Any way to prolong the batteries life? I'm ok with the short running time I will never be far away from the charger but I don't want to have to throw new batteries in right away unless I have to. I feel that even if I had 2600 invested it still isn't a bad deal as long as the cart is in good shape.

I have a question. Is this a 36 volt, 2002 Club Car with V-glide and resistors? If so, why did he put the three 12 volts in there to begin with? Also your stereo and lights are probably hooked to one of those batteries and that is going to exagerate the limited run time even more.
