New and Used Golf Cart Prices from BuyerZone Buyers
BuyerZone regularly surveys its users to learn about their buying experience. We've compiled select responses to detail how much businesses and consumers paid for golf carts.
Pricing for new golf carts starts around $4,000 to $5,000 for basic models and reaches $8,000 to $10,000 for fully-featured vehicles. Extras like upholstery upgrades, fancy wheels and rims, custom paint jobs, or lights will all add to your costs. New golf carts come with a manufacturer's warranty that provides comprehensive coverage on critical parts during the first year, and longer-term protection on other parts.
Many smaller companies and individuals purchase used golf carts instead of new, since they're considerably less expensive. Two types of "used" carts are available: refurbished and "as is." Refurbished models are carefully inspected, cleaned, and fixed to look as good as new. In some cases, the dealer can even customize selected features, the same as they do for new golf carts. The dealer provides a warranty of at least 30 days to protect you against immediate breakdowns.
"As is" golf carts are also inspected, but the vendors don't put in as much work - they just want to sell them quickly. They're cheaper up front, but buying "as is" golf carts is much riskier: you won't receive any sort of warranty, and could end up with a vehicle that will cost you more in the long run.

Used golf cart prices
"Bought a Club Car for $6,700. The fact that it is a remanufactured 2002, but everything is completely new on it, and we were more concerned about all of the bells and whistles, color choices, quality, warranty, seats, etc., than we were concerned about the year. Also, if the cart doesn't start or we have problems, these people will service it while we wait or pick it up if necessary. This is HUGE for people in a senior community!"
