We bought one for our kids this winter. It's a 1998 model. They drive it all over the place. We take it camping so they can run around and terrorize the neighbors
The EZ-GO uses a four stroke two cylinder engine that has proven to be dead-reliable with plenty of grunt. You'll like it. It's easy to govern down for the kids use. I would advise doing so.
We'll be getting an adults-only cart within a year for lifting and "other" modifications.
