stewy, my addvice is to know where youwant to go before you purchase the cart. If you want an off roader then you need... if you want to go 25 to 30 on the street then you need... Point being their is no good reason to purchase a running cart at top dollar if you will need to rip everything out to make it do what you want.

However if you want to get a cart and use as is for a good while then upgrade, the 08 sounds like it might be a good deal. What year are the batteries? marked on battery post) if they are 08s then you will probably need $600 to $1000 worth of batteries soon. so keep that in mind. Batteries that are well taken care of last around 5 years. Not so well taken care of and your are looking at 3to 4 years.

If the batts are 08s, haggle a little or at least get a written discount on a new set when you need them.

good luck

Thanks, I was thinking the same thing about the batteries, for that reason should I consider the gas? Cart will be for mostly wife and kid.

Had a gas EZGO a few years back, it was OK. I now own an '07 EZGO 36 volt series cart and love it. It's quiet, plenty of power for running around the park, although I changed out controller, wires, F/R cam to some hopped up stuff from scottyb. My batteries are '08 but still show good numbers on digital battery gauge. I'll continue running these batteries till they die, then put some new T105's in.

I'd be looking at one of the '08 36volts.
