HEADLIGHT CONTROL
Vehicles with Headlights
The headlight switch (3) is located on the instrument panel to the right of the steering column (Figure 10 or Figure
11). Press the side of the switch with the headlight symbol to turn the headlights on and press the other side to turn
the headlights off.
NOTE: Gasoline vehicles: Using the headlights for extended periods of time without the engine running, or with the
engine idling will discharge the battery.
BATTERY WARNING LIGHT
Electric Vehicles with PowerDrive 3 Battery Chargers
Electric vehicles feature a dash mounted warning light (4) (above steering column) that, when the vehicle is in
operation, indicates low battery voltage or, when the vehicle is being charged, indicates a charging problem (Figure
11). The battery warning light is controlled by the onboard computer.
When the vehicle is in operation, the warning light will illuminate and remain illuminated if:
• Batteries’ voltage drops below 48 when there is no load on the batteries (the vehicle is stopped and there are
no accessories on).
• Batteries have discharged to less than 25% of rated capacity.
If the warning light illuminates when the vehicle is operating, there will be enough power remaining to drive the vehicle
for approximately 30 minutes. However, the vehicle should be charged at the first opportunity. If the warning light
illuminates and the vehicle is unable to operate for 30 minutes, have your Club Car distributor/dealer check the
vehicle for a possible battery or electrical system problem.
When the batteries receive an incomplete charge because 1) the DC power cord is disconnected, 2) AC power to the
charger is interrupted, 3) automatic charger shut-off occurs after 16 hours of operation, 4) the charger malfunctions,
or 5) the wrong charger is used, the warning light will indicate as follows:
• The warning light will not come on if the charge is 90% or more complete. The onboard computer will retain in
memory the amount of charge needed to fully replenish the batteries and will complete the charge during the
next charge cycle.
• When the charger is unplugged, the warning light will illuminate and remain illuminated for 10 seconds if the charge
is less than 90% complete but the vehicle has enough power for approximately 30 minutes of operation. This will
alert the operator that the vehicle may be used, but that it must be charged to completion as soon as possible.
• The warning light will repeatedly illuminate for 10 seconds, with 4 second intervals if the charger times out at 16
hours and the batteries are not sufficiently charged. This indicates an abnormal charge cycle. The charger and
batteries should be checked by your Club Car distributor/dealer.
• The warning light will repeatedly illuminate for 10 seconds, with 4 second intervals during a charge cycle (DC plug is
still connected) if AC power to the charger is interrupted. The light will go out when AC power is restored.
LED light: In addition to the warning light, there is an infrared LED in the dash light assembly, which transmits an
infrared signal from the onboard computer (OBC). This signal is received by the optional Communication Display
Module, which provides information on the condition of the vehicle and batteries.
CHARGE INDICATOR LIGHT
Electric Vehicles with QuiQ™ Battery Chargers
The electric vehicle features a charge indicator light (4) (above steering column) that, when the vehicle is in operation,
indicates low battery voltage or, when the vehicle is being charged, indicates a charging problem (Figure 11). The light
serves two functions: 1) Battery low state-of-charge warning, and 2) Charging confirmation.
Battery Low State-of-Charge Warning
• The light comes on and remains solid when the battery state of charge falls below 20%.
• The light begins flashing when the battery state of charge falls below 10%.
XRT 850 Electric and Gasoline Vehicle Owner’s Manual Page 19
Controls and Indicators
CAUTION
• When the light indicates a low state of charge, the vehicle should be placed on charge as soon as
possible.
Charging Confirmation
• The light will flash three times and the reverse buzzer simultaneously will sound three times to indicate a battery
charging session has begun.
LOW OIL WARNING LIGHT
Gasoline Vehicles Only
The gasoline vehicle is equipped with a low oil warning light, located on the dash panel to the right of the key switch. If
the warning light comes on, oil should be checked and added to the engine as necessary before continuing to use the
vehicle. The vehicle should never be driven with the low oil warning light remaining on. If the warning light goes on and
off, you may proceed, but oil should be added at the first opportunity. If the oil level is correct and the warning light
stays on, have a trained technician check the vehicle. See following CAUTION.
CAUTION
• Failure to add oil immediately when the low oil warning light stays on may result in permanent
engine damage.
FUEL GAUGE/HOUR METER
Gasoline Vehicles Only
The gasoline vehicle is equipped with a fuel gauge/hour meter (5), located on the instrument panel (Figure 10). The
fuel gauge allows the operator to monitor the fuel level in the vehicle. The hour meter should be used by the trained
technician to track vehicle usage and determine when periodic service procedures are required. See Periodic
Service Schedule on page 37.
ACCELERATOR PEDAL
The accelerator pedal is the pedal on the right, with the word GO molded into it (Figure 12).
• Electric and pedal-start vehicles: When the key switch is in the ON position, and the Forward/Reverse handle or
switch is in either the FORWARD or REVERSE position, pressing the accelerator pedal will automatically release
the park brake and start the vehicle moving in the direction selected (forward or reverse). When the accelerator is
released, power will be cut off and the motor or engine will stop running.
Electric Vehicles
Electric vehicles use a special electrical system, which employs motor braking in some modes of operation. In
those modes, the vehicle operates as follows:
• Walk-Away Braking: This feature prevents the vehicle from rolling away uncontrolled should the driver park on a
slope and leave the vehicle without locking the park brake. The vehicle will roll at about 1 to 3 mph (1.6 to 4.8 km/h).
If the walk away braking function remains engaged for two seconds or more, a warning buzzer will sound to alert the
driver that motor braking has been activated. See following WARNING.
Page 20 XRT 850 Electric and Gasoline Vehicle Owner’s Manual
Controls and Indicators
WARNING
• Walk away braking will not limit vehicle speed to 3 mph (4.8 km/h) on very steep grades. Do not
operate vehicle on slopes exceeding 20% grades.
• Pedal Down Motor Braking: This feature helps to control vehicle downhill speed. Motor braking is activated when
the vehicle reaches the programmed top speed and holds the vehicle at that speed. Motor braking is automatically
disengaged when vehicle speed slows below the programmed top speed. See following WARNING.
• Pedal Up Motor Braking: When vehicle speed is above 11 mph (17.7 km/h), releasing the accelerator pedal will
activate motor braking, which slows the vehicle speed. Once vehicle speed slows to below approximately 11
mph (17.7 km/h), with the accelerator pedal still released, motor braking will be deactivated and the vehicle will
coast freely. This feature is selectable. Contact your dealer/distributor to inquire about this selectable feature.
See following WARNING.
WARNING
• When batteries are fully charged, a warning buzzer will sound during motor braking to alert the driver
that motor braking is operating at a reduced level of performance. When this occurs, use the brake
pedal to control vehicle speed.

Pre-Operation and Daily Safety Checklist
PERFORMANCE INSPECTION
After you have familiarized yourself with the vehicle controls and have read and understood the driving instructions,
take the vehicle for a test drive.
Use the following checklist, in conjunction with the Pre-Operation and Daily Safety Checklist, as a guide to inspect the
vehicle and check daily for proper operation. Any problems should be corrected by a Club Car distributor/dealer or a
trained technician.
All Vehicles
• Forward/Reverse control: Check for proper operation. See Controls and Indicators on page 17.
• Brakes: Be sure the brakes function properly. When brake pedal is fully pressed under moderate pressure,
it should not go more than halfway to the floor, and vehicle should come to a smooth, straight stop. If the brake
pedal goes more than halfway to the floor, or if the vehicle swerves or fails to stop, have the brake system checked
and adjusted as required. Brake adjustment must be maintained so that the brake pedal cannot be pressed to the
floor under any circumstance.
• Park brake: When latched, the park brake should lock the wheels and hold the vehicle stationary (on an incline of
20% or less). It should release when either the accelerator or brake pedal is pressed.
• Reverse buzzer: The reverse buzzer should sound as a warning when the Forward/Reverse handle or switch is in
the REVERSE position.
• Steering: The vehicle should be easy to steer and should not have any play in the steering wheel.
• General: Listen for any unusual noises such as squeaks or rattles. Check the vehicle ride and performance. Have
a Club Car distributor/dealer or a trained technician investigate anything unusual.
Electric Vehicles
• Accelerator: With the key switch in the ON position and the Forward/Reverse switch in the FORWARD position, as
the accelerator pedal is pressed, the motor should start and the vehicle should accelerate smoothly to full speed.
Club Car vehicles operate at reduced speed in reverse. When the pedal is released, it should return to the original
position and the motor should rotate freely or go into motor braking mode. See Pedal Up Motor Braking below.
• Walk Away Braking: With the vehicle parked on level ground and the park brake disengaged, place the Tow/Run
switch in the RUN position and attempt to push the vehicle. Motor braking should engage and limit rolling to no
more than 1 to 3 mph (1.6 to 4.8 km/h) with the Forward/Reverse switch in any position. When walk away motor
braking is engaged, the reverse buzzer should emit a distinct pattern of beeps.
• Pedal Up Motor Braking (adjustable on IQ System vehicles): Accelerate the vehicle to full speed and then
release the accelerator pedal. Motor braking should quickly and smoothly slow the vehicle to approximately 11 mph
(17.7 km/h). Motor braking will disengage when vehicle slows to 11 mph (17.7 km/h). This feature is adjustable for
IQ System vehicles. Contact your local Club Car dealer/distributor to inquire about this adjustable feature.
• Pedal Down Motor Braking: Accelerate down an incline with the accelerator pedal pressed. When the vehicle
reaches maximum programmed speed, motor braking should engage and limit the vehicle to its maximum
programmed speed. On very steep grades, the vehicle may slightly exceed its maximum programmed speed,
requiring use of the brake pedal.
Gasoline Vehicles
• Accelerator: With the key switch in the ON position and the Forward/Reverse handle in the FORWARD position, as
the accelerator pedal is pressed, the engine should start and the vehicle should accelerate smoothly to full speed.
When the pedal is released, it should return to the original position and the engine should stop.
• Governor: Check maximum speed of the vehicle on a level surface. Refer to Vehicle Specifications beginning on
page 68 for the rated speed of the vehicle.

PREPARING THE ELECTRIC VEHICLE FOR EXTENDED STORAGE
Check Battery Water Levels Two Weeks Prior to Storage
Check water levels at least two weeks prior to winter storage to ensure proper mixing of water and electrolyte. Note
that it takes approximately five charge cycles with a minimum of 10 amp hours removed to properly mix the water with
XRT 850 Electric and Gasoline Vehicle Owner’s Manual Page 31
Storage – Electric Vehicles with PowerDrive 3 Battery Chargers
electrolyte. Do NOT water batteries immediately prior to storage because this will not provide sufficient charge time to
mix the water with the electrolyte. Freezing can occur when batteries are stored in this condition.
1. Check the water levels in each battery cell. If water is required, fill the cells to cover the plates, charge the
batteries, and then use distilled water to fill each cell to the correct level. Electrolyte level should be from 1/2 inch
(13 mm) above plates to 1/4 inch (6 mm) below the level indicator (Figure 20).
Immediately Prior to Storage, Perform the Following Steps
1. Unload the vehicle so that tires are supporting only the weight of the vehicle.
2. Turn the key switch to the OFF position, remove the key, and leave the Forward/Reverse switch in the NEUTRAL
position during storage.
3. If so installed, turn off all accessories, including GPS units, fans, etc.
4. Place the Tow/Run switch in the TOW position. Because the battery warning light does not illuminate with
the key in the OFF position and the tow switch in TOW, do not use the warning light as an indication of the
batteries’ state of charge.
NOTE: If Visage or Guardian units are installed on vehicles and remote monitoring will be used during the storage
period, make sure the Tow/Run Switch remains in the RUN position rather than in the TOW position required
for all other vehicles.
5. Batteries should be clean and free of corrosion. Wash tops and terminals of batteries with a solution of baking soda
and water (1 cup (237 mL) baking soda per 1 gallon (3.8 L) of water). Rinse solution off batteries. Do not allow
this solution to enter the batteries. Let the terminals dry and then coat them with Battery Terminal Protector Spray.
6. Tighten all battery cable connections to 110 in·lb.
7. Store vehicle in a cool, dry place. This will minimize battery self-discharge.
8. Adjust tires to recommended tire pressure. See Vehicle Specifications – Electric Vehicles on page 64.
9. Perform semiannual periodic lubrication. See Periodic Lubrication Schedules on page 40.
10. Thoroughly clean front body, rear body, seats, battery compartment, and underside of vehicle.
11. Do not engage the park brake. Chock the wheels to prevent the vehicle from rolling.
NOTE: It is recommended that the vehicles be plugged in and the electrolyte level maintained throughout the storage
period. If any of the following conditions exist, however, then disconnect the batteries for storage: 1) The
charger cannot remain plugged in, 2) AC power will not be available during extended storage, or 3) Electrolyte
levels will not be maintained. To disconnect batteries for storage, go to step 13.
12. To keep batteries fully charged during storage:
12.1.Plug the battery charger into the car. Leave battery chargers plugged in during storage. The onboard
computer (OBC) will automatically activate the charger when necessary.
12.2.Check the electrolyte level and charger function monthly to ensure that proper operation is maintained.
To check charger function, disconnect the DC cord (stationary charger) from the vehicle or the AC cord
(onboard charger) from the power source, wait five seconds, then reconnect it. The charger is functioning
properly if the ammeter indicates current.
NOTE: The OBC keeps track of the time spent in storage mode. When the OBC detects that the storage charge
cycles may have depleted the available electrolyte, it will stop the charger from further operation.
Disconnecting then reconnecting the DC cord (stationary charger) or AC cord (onboard charger) indicates the
electrolyte levels have been maintained and allows the OBC to resume operation.
12.3. If AC power is off for 7 days or longer, the OBC will not function or charge the vehicle again until it has
been restarted. To restart the computer, make sure AC power has been restored, disconnect the DC
cord (stationary charger) from the vehicle or the AC cord (onboard charger) from the power source, wait
five seconds, then reconnect it.

See General Warnings on page 10.
DANGER
• Battery – Explosive gases! Do not smoke. Keep sparks and flames away from the vehicle and service
area. Ventilate when charging or operating vehicle in an enclosed area. Wear a full face shield and
rubber gloves when working on or near batteries.
• Charge batteries in a well-ventilated area only. Batteries emit hydrogen while being charged. Hydrogen
is an explosive gas and must never exceed a level of 2% of the air.
• Battery – Poison! Contains acid! Causes severe burns. Avoid contact with skin, eyes, or clothing.
Antidotes:
– External: Flush with water. Call a physician immediately.
– Internal: Drink large quantities of milk or water followed with milk of magnesia or vegetable
oil. Call a physician immediately.
– Eyes: Flush with water for 15 minutes. Call a physician immediately.
WARNING
• Wear safety glasses or approved eye protection when servicing the vehicle or battery charger. Wear a
full face shield and rubber gloves when working on or near batteries.
• Use insulated tools when working near batteries or electrical connections. Use extreme caution to
avoid shorting of components or wiring.
• Ensure battery connections are clean and properly tightened. See Battery Care – Vehicles Equipped
with the Single-Point Watering System (SPWS) on page 44 or Battery Care – Vehicles Without the
Single-Point Watering System (SPWS) on page 45.
CAUTION
• Turn off all accessories before charging batteries.
NOTE: Recycle or dispose of discarded batteries in accordance with local, state, and federal regulations.
Club Car electric vehicles use deep-cycle batteries. Automotive batteries should never be used in electric vehicles.
New batteries will not deliver their full capabilities until they have been discharged and recharged 50 to 70 times. To
obtain maximum service life from new batteries, restrict the use of vehicles with new batteries to one hour of operation
between charges for the first two months vehicle is in service. Batteries should be fully charged before first use of new
vehicle, before first use of a vehicle after storage, and before releasing vehicle for use each day.
Page 42 XRT 850 Electric and Gasoline Vehicle Owner’s Manual
Batteries – Electric Vehicles
WATER QUALITY
Water purity is the most important factor in the performance and life span of the vehicle batteries. Club Car has,
therefore, placed an increased importance on battery maintenance.
Outlined below are four battery watering procedures, grouped into two categories: Preferred and Alternate methods.
Club Car recommends the use of a deionizer or distilled water. Alternate methods of reverse osmosis or tap water
are allowable but should be avoided since water quality can change from day to day depending on additives, water
main leaks, etc.
Preferred Methods
• Distilled Water: Distilled water is the most common type of water used in batteries. Distilled water is created by
boiling water, collecting the steam from the boiling, and allowing the steam to condense back into water. The
distilling process results in a water source which is free of minerals that can lead to the degradation of battery
performance and life.
• Deionized Water: Deionized water is created by inducing electrically charged resins that attract and bind to sodium,
calcium, iron, copper, chloride, and bromide ions. The result of this electrical filtering is a purified water, which
contains little to no mineral ions. To make sure the deionized water remains at a high quality, replace the filter in the
deionizer per the manufacturer’s recommendations.
Deionizer Systems
The Service Parts Department at Club Car offers two deionizer systems: one for vehicles equipped with the Single
Point Watering System (SPWS), CC PN 104006001 and the other for vehicles without SPWS, CC PN AM10974.
Alternate Methods
• Reverse Osmosis: Reverse osmosis involves forcing water through a membrane that allows water to pass while
trapping solids. The choice of membrane used determines the amount of solids or impurities which get trapped
and hence the purity quality of the filtered water. In addition, the usage frequency of the membrane can also
contribute to the filtered water quality. Due to the variance in water quality consistency, Club Car recommends
the use of the deionizer or distilled water.
• Tap Water: While the use of tap water without filtering is an alternate method of battery watering, its use should be
limited due to the levels of dissolved minerals and chemicals that can degrade battery performance and life. If
unfiltered tap water is used, regular water analyses must be conducted to check for impurities. The following chart
lists the maximum allowable minerals, solids, and contaminates in parts per million and their impact on battery
performance. Water testing, however, is expensive, and water quality can change from day to day depending on
additives, water main leaks, etc. Due to the cost and labor of performing water quality tests, Club Car recommends
the use of distilled water or a deionizer.

BATTERY CARE – VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH THE SINGLE-POINT WATERING SYSTEM
(SPWS)
To keep batteries in good working condition, follow this maintenance program on a regular basis:
1. Keep the batteries clean and free of corrosion. Wash tops and terminals of batteries with a solution of baking
soda and water; use 1 cup (237 mL) baking soda per 1 gallon (3.8 L) of water. Rinse solution off of the batteries.
Do not allow this solution to enter the battery. Be sure terminals are tight. Let the terminals dry and then coat with
Battery Terminal Protector Spray. See following NOTE.
NOTE: Dispose of waste water properly.
2. The battery hold-downs should be tight enough so that the batteries do not move while the vehicle is in motion,
but not so tight as to crack or buckle the battery case. Tighten retaining nuts on the two inner hold-downs to
110 in·lb (12.4 N·m), and tighten the retaining nuts on the two outer hold-downs to 55 in·lb (6.2 N·m). The
terminal connections should be clean and tight, and any worn insulation or frayed wires should be replaced.
Tighten battery terminals to proper torque. See Connecting the Batteries – Electric Vehicles on page 13.
See following WARNING.
Page 44 XRT 850 Electric and Gasoline Vehicle Owner’s Manual
Batteries – Electric Vehicles
WARNING
• If battery wire terminals are damaged or corroded, replace or clean them as necessary. Failure
to do so may cause them to overheat during operation and can result in fire, property damage, or
personal injury.
3. After use, charge the batteries. The batteries should never be left discharged any longer than absolutely
necessary (do not leave discharged overnight).
4. Water the batteries monthly or according to the watering interval. See Establishing the Watering Interval for
New Vehicles on page 45. See Watering Batteries with the SPWS on page 47.
CAUTION
• The watering interval must adequately maintain the electrolyte level above the top of the plates
(Figure 20, Page 46).
• Water the batteries only AFTER charging.
NOTE: Bottled distilled water, with the hand pump, CC PN 104006101, is recommended for private consumer SPWS
applications.
Establishing the Watering Interval for New Vehicles
If you do not already have a battery watering interval for your vehicles, manually check the battery water level weekly
to establish the correct watering interval. Thereafter, water batteries according to the established interval. During
periods of heavy use, add additional watering as required.
Single-Point Watering System (SPWS) Maintenance
1. For vehicles newly equipped with the Single-Point Watering System, the initial electrolyte level check on all
battery cells verifies that all the valves in the SPWS are functioning correctly. See Periodic Service Schedules
on page 37. If a valve fails to open, the cell will eventually dry out. The initial one-time inspection of all cells
will identify any occurrence of a valve that fails to open. If a valve fails to close, it will become evident due to
the cell overflowing during routine watering. Either failure scenario is rare, but should be monitored in the initial
inspection and during routine watering sessions. Replace malfunctioning valves to ensure maximum battery
life. See following CAUTION.
CAUTION
• After checking the electrolyte, fully tighten the battery caps to prevent electrolyte leakage.
2. After the initial six-week inspection, manually check the electrolyte level at least once per year, particularly after
long-term storage or any other period of vehicle inactivity. See preceding CAUTION.
BATTERY CARE – VEHICLES WITHOUT THE SINGLE-POINT WATERING SYSTEM (SPWS)
To keep batteries in good working condition, follow this maintenance program on a regular basis:
1. Keep the batteries clean and free of corrosion. Wash tops and terminals of batteries with a solution of baking
soda and water; use 1 cup (237 mL) baking soda per 1 gallon (3.8 L) of water. Rinse solution off of the batteries.
Do not allow this solution to enter the battery. Be sure terminals are tight. Let the terminals dry and then coat with
Battery Terminal Protector Spray. See following NOTE.
NOTE: Dispose of waste water properly.
2. Check the electrolyte level weekly (Figure 20). Add water only after charging unless the electrolyte level is below
the top of the plates. In this case, add just enough water to cover the plates, charge, and then check the level
again. Never charge batteries if plates are exposed above electrolyte level. For best battery life, add only
distilled water. See following CAUTION and NOTE.
XRT 850 Electric and Gasoline Vehicle Owner’s Manual Page 45
Batteries – Electric Vehicles
CAUTION
• Do not overfill the batteries.
3. The battery hold-downs should be tight enough so that the batteries do not move while the vehicle is in motion,
but not so tight as to crack or buckle the battery case. Tighten retaining nuts on the two inner hold-downs to
110 in·lb (12.4 N·m), and tighten the retaining nuts on the two outer hold-downs to 55 in·lb (6.2 N·m). The
terminal connections should be clean and tight, and any worn insulation or frayed wires should be replaced.

the pump is not grounded, the vehicle must be grounded to the pump before and during the fueling
operation.
• If the vehicle has an all-weather enclosure installed, be sure the fuel tank is properly vented as shown
(Figure 34).
• To avoid the possibility of fire, clean up any spilled fuel before operating the vehicle.
CAUTION
• Use unleaded gasoline only.
• Whenever possible, avoid using oxygenated and blended fuels.
• Do not use any fuel with an alcohol content that exceeds 10% by volume (such as E15 and E85).
Ethanol is an alcohol that readily absorbs moisture, causing corrosion of fuel system components. It
also damages neoprene and other plastic and rubber components. Use of these fuels in this vehicle
will void the warranty.
• Do not repeatedly attempt to start a vehicle when the fuel pump is dry (no gas in tank). Doing so
can damage the fuel pump.
Page 62 XRT 850 Electric and Gasoline Vehicle Owner’s Manual
Cleaning the Vehicle
NOTE: Whenever possible, avoid using oxygenated fuels and fuels that are blended with alcohol. Vehicles to be
stored for extended periods should be prepared for storage as instructed. See Preparing the Gasoline
Vehicle for Extended Storage on page 35.

2. The fuel tank is located on passenger side of vehicle (Figure 34). Remove fuel cap and fill the fuel tank with fresh
unleaded gasoline only. See preceding CAUTION and NOTE.
3. Replace fuel cap on tank. Ensure cap is securely tightened (tighten until it clicks).
4. Replace seat bottom.
CLEANING THE VEHICLE
These vehicles are equipped with Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS) front bodies and Thermoplastic PolyOlefin
(TPO) for rear bodies. Use only commercially available automotive cleaners with a sponge or soft cloth for normal
cleaning. A garden hose at normal residential water pressure is adequate.
Club Car does not recommend any type of pressure washing or steam cleaning. Such a process (especially if the
vehicle has the rear body removed) will expose electrical components to moisture. Moisture entering electrical
components can result in water damage and subsequent component failure.
Use non-abrasive wax products. Battery acid, fertilizers, tars, asphalt, creosote, paint, or chewing gum should be
removed immediately to prevent possible stains.
The seats of the vehicle will last longer with proper cleaning. Use a solution of 10% liquid soap and warm water applied
with a soft cloth. For imbedded dirt, a soft bristle brush may be used. For heavy soiling, difficult stains or scratches,
blemishes, or other body damage, see the appropriate Maintenance and Service Manual or contact your local Club
Car dealer. See following NOTE.
NOTE: Dispose of waste water properly.

OWNER’S WARRANTY RESPONSIBILITIES
As the engine owner, you are responsible for the performance of the required maintenance listed in your owner’s

cannot deny warranty solely for the lack of receipts or for your failure to ensure the performance of all scheduled
maintenance.
As the engine owner, you should however be aware that CLUB CAR may deny warranty coverage if your engine or a
part has failed due to abuse, neglect, improper maintenance or unapproved modifications.
You are responsible for presenting your engine to the nearest service dealer authorized by CLUB CAR when a
problem exists.
If you have any questions regarding your warranty rights and responsibilities, you should contact the CLUB CAR
customer service department at 706-863-3000 for the information.
THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT THE EMISSION CONTROL SYSTEM WARRANTY MAINTENANCE AND
REPAIRS
You are responsible for the proper maintenance of the engine. You should keep all receipts and maintenance records
covering the performance of regular maintenance in the event questions arise. These receipts and maintenance
records should be transferred to each subsequent owner of the engine. CLUB CAR reserves the right to deny warranty
coverage if the engine has not been properly maintained. Warranty claims will not be denied, however, solely because
of the lack of required maintenance or failure to keep maintenance records.
MAINTENANCE, REPLACEMENT OR REPAIR OF EMISSION CONTROL DEVICES AND SYSTEMS MAY
BE PERFORMED BY ANY REPAIR ESTABLISHMENT OR INDIVIDUAL; HOWEVER, WARRANTY REPAIRS
MUST BE PERFORMED BY A SERVICE DEALER AUTHORIZED BY CLUB CAR. THE USE OF PARTS THAT
ARE NOT EQUIVALENT IN PERFORMANCE AND DURABILITY TO AUTHORIZED PARTS MAY IMPAIR THE
EFFECTIVENESS OF THE EMISSION CONTROL SYSTEM AND MAY HAVE A BEARING ON THE OUTCOME OF
A WARRANTY CLAIM.
If other than the parts authorized by CLUB CAR are used for maintenance replacements or for the repair of components
affecting emission control, you should assure yourself that such parts are warranted by their manufacturer to be
equivalent to the parts authorized by CLUB CAR in their performance and durability.
HOW TO MAKE A CLAIM
All repairs qualifying under this limited warranty must be performed by a service dealer authorized by CLUB CAR. In
the event that any emission-related part is found to be defective during the warranty period, you shall notify CLUB CAR
customer service department at 706-863-3000 and you will be advised of the appropriate warranty service dealer or
service providers where the warranty repair can be performed.

OWNER’S WARRANTY RESPONSIBILITIES:
- As the vehicle engine owner, you are responsible for the performance of the required maintenance listed in your
owner’s manual. CLUB CAR recommends that you retain all receipts covering maintenance on your vehicle engine,
but CLUB CAR cannot deny warranty solely for the lack of receipts or for your failure to ensure the performance of all
scheduled maintenance.

CLUB CAR EXPLANATION OF EMISSION CONTROL WARRANTY:
1. WARRANTY:
CLUB CAR warrants to the ultimate purchaser and each subsequent purchaser that the SORE and related emissions
equipment is designed, built and equipped so as to conform with all applicable California environmental emission
regulations; and free from defects in materials and workmanship that cause the failure of a warranted part to be
identical in all material respects to that part as described in CLUB CAR’s application for certification with CARB. The
warranty period begins on the date the engine or equipment is delivered to an ultimate purchaser or first placed into
service. The warranty period is two years from the date of purchase.
2. COVERAGE:
Subject to certain conditions and exclusions as stated below, the warranty on emission-related parts is as follows:
