A golf cart can be a fun addition to your home or vacation rental but can be challenging to maintain. There are a few simple things you can do to get the maximum experience and longevity from your golf cart.
Make Sure to Check the Manual
Small issues with golf carts can sometimes have a simple fix with step-by-step instructions found in the manual. Always reference your manual when troubleshooting problems with your golf cart.
Run through this checklist when your golf cart isn’t functioning properly:
- Check the battery condition and connection.
- For gas powered vehicles – check the gas level, fuel lines and fuel filter.
- Check the air filter (gas only).
- Check the spark plugs (gas only).
Annual, Semi-Annual and Monthly Maintenance
Simple troubleshooting can be handled by any experienced golf cart owner but major repair and annual or semi-annual maintenance are best left up to the professionals. Don’t have time to do weekly or monthly maintenance yourself? We have custom maintenance plans available for you to choose from that fit your needs and your schedule. Our plans include some or all of the following:
