I'm with the others on the batteries. In fact, I would argue the new 12v's are not "newer" than the 6's because their average life span is a year shorter all else being equal.

I believe 2008 was the transition year when CC quit the 12v's and went back to 6v's in the Precedent (also in the DS I think). They abandoned the 12v for a reason.

I would also be interested in the model # of the exides. If they are GC8V-118 , that is a 170 AH battery and what most people use in 48v carts. If they are GC8V-110, that is a 150AH battery and will probably disappoint in run time and longevity. I would argue for a lower price if equipped with these or similar batteries.

My 2cents

I did go ahead and tell him to build out the 2010, based on the replies here and our gut feelings that it was the one to go with. I wish I had a picture of the batteries so that I could post it, I've looked on Google and I haven't found anything that looks like them. Like I said, they appear to be Exides under another label (it is my understanding that they do that), but I am really basing that on the water cover mechanism. We also like the fact that he will buy us batteries at cost in the future, as well as accessories, so that is a plus. Additionally, since it is $150 cheaper than the 08, it is a savings as well.

BTW, I was told that CC changed the battery config mid year in 2008, so early 08 CCs had 4 batteries while later ones have 6.
Just sayin...... If he is offering this "at cost" offer...... GET IT IN WRITING.
