Ezgo 2five lsv review escoliosis toracica

I don’t submit reviews often but there are so few 2five reviews so I’m posting one. Seasoned golf cart owners may find some of this info obvious and boring.

After looking over a few carts I found carts from yamaha, club car and EZGO all seem well made with high quality parts. I ruled out other brands (tomberlin, star EV, etc.) due to bankruptcies and/or being too new to the scene.

The engineering level of golf carts in general does not appear as polished as the automotive world but more on "par" with products like recreational boats and high end lawn tractors.

The 2five body, frame, suspension and drivetrain seem beefy and nicely made. The plastic body is beautifully finished (blue in my case). Some of the parts that make the 2five an LSV (such as the mirrors, seatbelts, signal stalk) are non EZGO parts but also seem well made.

The cart goes exactly 25 MPH, which seems plenty fast for this type of vehicle. I would not be comfortable going any faster with family members riding along. The 2five will hold 20+mph on hills and I8+mph on hills with 4 adults on board.

The rack and pinion steering is precise and confidence inspiring. The steering effort is light and can easily be handled by my 100 pound wife. No power steering assist is available or needed.

The ride is firm (can I say "sporty" about a golf cart?) with not much leaning in turns. I like the ride but some may find it too firm on rough pavement. I heard the club car villager has softer suspension but I can’t confirm that.

4 wheel disk brakes is one major difference between a typical golf cart and an LSV (most golf carts are rear brake only). Light braking is handled with regenerative motor braking, while the disc brakes only start working during moderate to heavy braking…Then the disk brakes stop the 2five as fast as a "real" car but with a little more pedal effort than your typical car.

The cart is very quiet but not silent, a little electric whine is present, however, I can often drive unnoticed just a few feet from pedestrians. The backseat seatbelts can make a rattle noise on rough pavement.

The headlights are 37 watt halogen and not quite as bright as the typical 55 watt low beams found in many cars. There are no high beams. I may change to brighter LED bulbs in the future.

The vehicle charging port (below the drivers seat cushion is a standard 110v three prong socket and can (in a pinch) accept most household outdoor extension cords. The charging socket has a built-in LED charge status light.

All 2fives come standard with a lockable passenger glove box. A drivers side glove box is optional and simply covers up the large drivers side storage bin with a door.

All seat upholstery is very high quality vinyl (similar to used in recreational boats). The front seat upholstery is fastened to a plywood seat frame, while the back seats are mounted to heavy duty HDPE plastic sheeting. The HDPE plastic makes the flip seat very durable (but slippery). When flipped down in "pick-up bed" mode the flip seat has no perimeter lip or raised edges to keep stuff from sliding off. IMO the plywood front seat backing is the most unimpressive feature of the entire cart (see picture)

The standard wheels are steel with plastic hubcaps. In pictures the standard wheels often look like aluminum rims but in real person it’s obviously not. The aluminum wheels upgrade adds about $300 and makes the entire cart look better.

I have 50 miles on my 2017 2five (4-passenger) and so far I’m happy and would completely recommend it to anyone. My kids love the 2five and I find myself making up reasons to take it out. LSV’s are quite rare here in northern new jersey and I’m pretty sure I’m the first one in my town with one.

Due to this rarity I get more "thumbs up" and general interest in my 2five than the 67 camaro I just sold, however, inquisitive people are often turned off by the price (I paid $10,267 no sales tax on LSV’s in NJ).

Federal LSV/NEV safety regulations require a 1 piece safety rated wundshield. Some states, very few, will allow a non-safety rated windshield. I was a state licensed EV/LSV/NEV OEM (originall equipment manufacturer), and I had to certify compliance with both federal and state motor vehicle regulations before I could assign a VIN and issue a manufacturers certificate of origin for any vehicles that I built. There is a golf cart to LSV/NEV rebuilder in cleveland TN that will certify any golf cart as such, even if it does not meet the standards. They don’t even put physical brakes on regen brake only carts (like the RXV), even though all states require it! Just because it is done, does not make it legal. If they get caught, they will lose their OEM license.

Star is a chinese import, so I’m not sure how it works for imported lsvs/nevs as for legal requirements. I’ve never imported motor vehicles from china. I bought a pair of new minivans for testing while I was in china, but left them there when I came back to the US.
