2005 EZGO models

The 2005 EZGO model golf carts comprise both the gas and electric variants of the golf cart. The key 2005 EZGO models are

  • EZGO TXT Series – The maximum speed of this golf cart varies from 12mph to 14mph and does not support regenerative braking. The F/R switch is placed near the driver’s leg in this cart.
  • EZGO TXT PDS – This cart has a slightly higher speed than that of the Series and renders 19mph top speed. It is equipped with the ability to support regenerative braking. The F/R switch is fitted on the dashboard.
  • EZGO MPT – This cart has multiple variants and is used for heavy-duty tasks. It comes with a cargo bed fitted on its rear. The engine is also very powerful.

Additionally, the EZGO DCS golf cart was available in 2005 as a second-hand golf cart as the manufacturer had stopped the production of this model by 2000. This model incorporates a toggle switch on the cover of its controller. The Freedom and Electric Shuttle 2 + 2 EZGO golf carts are some other less popular 2005 EZGO cart models.


2005 EZGO gas golf cart

The 2005 EZGO gas golf cart requires maintenance similar to that of a car. The cart must be operated using regular unleaded gas to render maximum performance. The gas variant of the EZGO cart has a 10HP to 12HP engine. The cart is more versatile than its electric counterparts and can also be used out of the golf course.

Two major drawbacks associated with the golf cart are in terms of eco-friendliness and noise. The cart generates more noise than an electric golf cart. Also, the toxic emissions are high in a gas-operated golf cart.

You must inspect the engine oil level at regular intervals as part of the maintenance and do a top-up if needed. The oil must also be changed at periodic intervals.

A used 2005 gas golf cart often has several moving parts, which increases the chances of the cart breaking down if it’s not handled with care.

However, with proper maintenance and use, the gas cart can help you cover a better range than an electric cart.


2005 EZGO electric golf cart

The 2005 EZGO electric golf cart is a quieter cart when compared to the gas golf cart. The cart also doesn’t have any toxic emissions that affect or pollute the environment.

The maintenance costs, in the long run, is also lesser when compared to that of a gas golf cart.

The main drawback of the electric golf cart is with respect to the distance covered. Although the cart has a higher speed than the gas counterpart, the overall distance covered is lesser.

A 2005 EZGO electric golf cart with fully charged batteries will cover a lesser distance than a 2005 gas golf cart with a fuel tank full of gasoline from the same manufacturer.

Moreover, the batteries will have to be charged every day. You will have to invest in a battery charger.


2005 EZGO golf cart manuals

You must buy the right manual for your golf cart. Also, keep in mind that the manual is different for both gas and electric golf carts. There are usually three manuals for a golf cart, namely, the parts manual; the service manual and the owner’s manual.

A manual can be handy when you want to purchase a part for your golf cart or want to troubleshoot the cart.

Here are the links to some manuals of 2005 EZGO golf carts.
