If you are headed North for Spring or returning from an extended trip, now is a good time to rejuvenate and tune up your golf cart. Performing routine maintenance at the beginning of the season will insure that your car performs ‘down’ to par and that you do not get stranded on the course, or wherever you might use your golf cart. For those that use the car year round, it is a good time to give it a Spring check-up. The information provided below is a step-by-step explanation of certain mechanical and maintenance aspects of your vehicle that anyone can easily perform. This stuff can save you $BIG BUCKS$ down the road.
