2004 EZGO models

The list below highlights some key models of the 2004 EZGO golf cart with a couple of details about each of them.

  • EZGO TXT PDS – The term PDS stands for Precision Drive System. This cart incorporates regenerative braking. It has a controller that supports various stages of this type of braking. The F&R switch is housed on the dashboard. The cart renders a maximum speed of 19mph.
  • EZGO TXT Series – This cart is also known as the Fleet TXT and is widely used on golf courses. It does not feature regenerative braking capability. The F&R switch is positioned near the leg. The cart has a maximum speed ranging between 12mph and 14mph.
  • EZGO MPT – The term MPT represents Multi Purpose Truck. This non-lifted cart has a square-shaped nose in front with two headlights. It features a cargo box or bed on its back.

The TXT models are best suited for personal or recreational use. On the other hand, the MPT vehicle is primarily designed for industrial or commercial applications. It resembles a pickup truck in terms of appearance and is a heavy-duty cart.


2004 EZGO gas golf cart

The initial costs as well as the follow-up maintenance and operation costs are higher in the case of a 2004 EZGO gas cart when compared to an electric cart.

A gas cart will travel slower than its electric counterpart but will help you cover a better distance. Ideally, the cart should have a speed lesser than 20mph.

The gas cart is lighter than its electric counterpart by around 200lbs because of its electric charger and smaller batteries. A two-passenger standard golf cart, on average, weighs close to 740lbs.

The following points are worth noting to help you make an informed buying decision if you are planning to check out a used 2004 EZGO gas golf cart.

  • Check out the appearance of the engine of the golf cart. A good engine should be free of burn marks and oil. It should have an overall clean appearance.
  • Do a compression check to determine the condition of the engine. Ideally, the engine must have a compression of close to 150PSI.
  • Ensure that other components like air filters and fuel lines are in good condition. They must be free of debris and dust accumulation. The dirty appearance indicates that the cart has had poor maintenance.
  • Inspect the belts to make sure that they look good and flat without appearing U-shaped. The big belt fitted to the clutch should be loose while the small belt fitted to the starter must be tight.
  • Watch out for an improper alignment by driving straight for a while and taking your hand off the steering wheel. If the cart moves to the right or the left, it needs a front suspension adjustment.


2004 EZGO electric golf cart

A 2004 EZGO electric golf cart is bound to be heavier than the corresponding gas cart because the batteries are heavier. A 48-volt two-seater electric golf cart weighs approximately 920lbs. The maintenance cost is less because it costs lesser to recharge batteries than to buy gasoline.

You must consider the following aspects when opting for a 2004 EZGO electric golf cart.

  • The golf cart is best suited for use on smooth and level surfaces and can be difficult to use on steep slopes or hilly terrains.
  • The electric golf cart renders a quieter or less noisy ride in comparison to a gas cart.
  • The batteries will often have to be charged every day for about six to eight hours. Hence, you will have to invest in an automatic battery charger to avoid overcharging the batteries.
  • The electric cart helps you travel at a decent speed but you will have to compromise on the overall distance.
