Default Buying my first cart - lingering questions

There's been a ton of useful info on here - thanks for that. I've read the Club Car vs EZGO threads, and it looks like that issue has been beaten to death. My take aways are that the Club Cars are a bit sturdier and less susceptible to the elements. Sound about right?

I live in a golf community, so the cart will be used to get around the neighborhood and for golfing. The golf cart will be parked outside, but will be under cover (almost like a car port). I've decided to go the Club Car route.

I do have a couple of questions still, though:

1. Regarding 2 passenger vs 4 passenger - are the bodies any different? Or are all 4 passenger carts basically 2 passenger carts with a backwards facing seats attached to the back?

2. Are there any differences in battery life between EZGO and Club Car?

Welcome to the forum

My experience is that most of the 4 seat cars are converted from a standard golf cart. (I think you can order a factory 4 seat model).

As for the batteries, i got nothing to offer ya on an opinion between the two cart companies, but i doubt there is really any difference.

The bodies are the same on two and four passenger carts and, like you said, four passenger carts with rear facing seats generally started out as two passenger.

Battery life is very similar in Club Car and EZ GO.

Thanks for the responses. Someone in the neighborhood is selling a 2 seater at a really good price, but I'd prefer a 4-seater. Sounds like I can just add the back seats and I'll be good to go!

How can l tell if a 4 seater precedent was orig a 2 seater. In my opinion a 2 seater will have seen more use probably as a cart off lease from a golf course.

It cost very little to replace the body, some unsuspecting buyer will look at the cart thinking it was barely used but in all reality under the skin it was used to death.

Thanks

Finally settled on a cart - a black 2007 fully refurbished (new batteries, tires, seats, and body), rear facing flip down seat, speed code 4, deluxe light kit, wink mirror, golf club rack on the back, sand bottles, 1 year warranty... $3,700 all in (tax, delivery, etc.). Seemed like a good deal (if it's not, just tell me it is anyways!).

Thanks for the input on this site, it was really helpful. I will be checking back in regularly if/when I have questions.

I think you got a good deal, i paid 2100.00 for my 05 Precedent with a flip flop seat. I added the lights, mirrors, new batteries (converted from 12v to 8v), 48v to 12v converter, those add on cost me about 1600.00

SPEND THE MONEY FOR SCOTTYB's meter for the dash, you wont regret that!
