Default How to tell an orig 4 seater Precedent!!

Hi

I asked this question but didn't receive an answer.

How can I tell if a 4 seater precedent was an original and not a 2 seater converted into a 4 seater.

As we know it's an easy thing to do but l also know that most 2 seaters were used as golf carts that came off lease and this is not what l am looking for.

Thanks

Alan

Im not sure that there are alot of factory 4 seaters out there. If a two seater is a goid cart, just add a second seat, its not a big deal. No matter what cart you end up buying (i think you said you were only going to buy a used cart from a dealer in your previous posts) do your homework, ask questions, check batteries, ect... And you should end up with a great cart.

I purchased my cart off an on line auction site here in michigan. I scoped the cart out, visited it, drove it, bid on it and then converted it to 8v batteries and a few toys.

Im very happy with my previously used cart. (cart was owned by a golf course previously)

Hi

You are probably right and the more l think about it a person who drives around a community or town will log on more miles and time then driving around a golf course.

At least most golf courses have tech's who service the carts.

What is the serial number of the cart? The first two letters will provide info as to being a possible factory 4 passenger unit . . .

Only in a perfect world. We have very few courses in our area who actually take the time and effort to take care of their vehicles.

Hi

I am really sorry to hear that! I am very anal when it comes to condition
and keeping everything in top running condition.
But l just can't see spending $7000 plus for a new cart just to drive around a community.

I have seen pristine CC Precedent 4'seaters for approx $5000 with a warranty
and new everything's including Trojan batteries but l am talking about
only 2010's.

I might look for a demo or just pick up a new one being that the season in Ga. is coming to an end.

A left over would be fine if the color was right and the price was right.

I have a golf cart garage so it would be neat to have a cart in it.

Just get a refurbed car from a dealer. They'll fix whatever is wrong with it. There's a couple of courses here that have flipped the same car 2 or 3 times and we just keep fixing it. Money's no big deal to them evidently.

Hi

Being that this going to be my first cart l would feel better only dealing with
An authorized CC dealer.

Not looking to save a dime and then costing me a quarter.

There are too many carts for sale from what l call used car dealers and individuals looking to make a buck and taking shortcuts.

It all sounds good reading and looking at pictures on various sites but l need a local dealer l can depend on.

Alan, there are alot of nice carts out there for sale by private owners and there are also some crappy ones. It would take some knowledge buying from a private owner and since you are looking to get one soon after you arrive down there the best option is a CC dealer. I didn't have to search far and was very lucky that my companies owner had a 2005 stored away which I bought last summer and it was only used 4 times and was like showroom new.
