The cart runs great and has super speed control, regen circuitry, no speed dropoff on hills, etc. but has slammed to a stop when cruising at 21mph 3 times now. The dealer picks it up and the first time said the code stored was a resistor, that they replaced. The second time it was a circuit board. The third time they replaced the whole controller assembly. I said if it does this again it will be their cart, not mine. I love the cart but the factory is not saying if this is widespread or not. They told the dealer if it happens again they will authorize the motor changeout. The brake system is on the motor, not the wheels, but they think the unexpected stopping and shutting down is the controller telling the motor or brake on the motor to do that. It won't run when it shuts down for awhile, but will reset and go again. I am posting this info just in case someone else expereiences the same thing. The warranty is 4 years, bumper to bumper and I am only 1 month into it, but this happensevery day. The dealer has had the cart more than I have.
