How to Identify Ezgo Golf Carts

By James Gapinski

Since its beginnings as a machine-shop in Grovetown, Georgia, the E-Z-GO company has grown to become "the world's leading manufacturer of golf cars, people movers and utility vehicles" according to BuyerZone.com. E-Z-GO golf carts can be seen at most golf links domestically and internationally, known even more widely than Yamaha and Club Car brands for durability and reliability. However, this fame comes at a price, and when it comes time to purchase a used E-Z-GO golf cart--or sell a used one of your own--it's important that you're able to identify the model and year of the cart so you can better estimate its age and worth.

Instructions

Difficulty: Moderately Easy
Step 1
Look for the E-Z-GO logo on the golf cart. The logo will usually be on the golf cart's plastic or metal grille; in some cases, the logo will be on the hood. The logo is easy to identify; it is simply the letters "E-Z-GO" enveloped by a black or silver oval.
Step 2
Look for a label on the back or side of the cart that indicates the E-Z-GO cart's model. RVX and TXT models are the most common, featuring clear labels on the passenger and driver's side of the cart.
Step 3
Write down the serial number as found in the glove box area. This is by far the most important piece of identification for an E-Z-GO golf cart, as every authentic E-Z-GO cart should have a serial number. On most E-Z-GOs, the serial number will be in the passenger-side glove box. However, some models have the number printed beneath the glove box. Additionally, CartsZone.com reports that E-Z-GO carts made before 1976 will feature a serial number on the fender beneath the driver's side seat rather than in the traditional glove box location.
Step 4
Log onto the Cunningham Golf Car Company's website (see Resources) to compare your serial number to the list provided on the site. You will be able to identify the cart's age by locating its proper place on the list of serial numbers.
