Customer service is third rate

Brought a MGI navigator 3 years and 3 months ago, spent ~$2,000 on it, did not use it for 18 months because of lockdowns, electronics unit is no longer working and has to be replaced (at a cost of $408), and MGI has said that they can not help... "Unfortunately due to the age of your buggy we're unable to supply a discount for this repair"... can get a new buggy for $500 with new 12 month warrantee... will tell anyone I can to shop around and avoid MGI like the plague...

Thanks team Show details

Disappointed is an understatement

I have had my MGI Zip 5 for a bit over 4 years and I have to say I do love it. However last year I suddenly needed a new gearbox. My buggy just completely stopped mid game - unfortunately no longer under their 3 year warranty- cost me $460. Now the battery is apparently faulty and I need a new one - another $400+ so all up around $900 to replace these parts within 5 years which themselves only have a 12 month warranty. Very very disappointing to say the least Show details

No brakes??

This is the their top of the line buggy. On first use I noticed that while on a gentle slope lining up to tee off in a crowded area the buggy very slowly rolled forward. I was then looking for a brake. There's no brake. I contacted MGI and the reply was, you need to put the buggy at a 90 degree angle to the slope. That is a design flaw if you ask me. The manual doesn't mention the need to do that. Apart from that it works fine. Show details

Oh I also bought the travel bag. It barely fits the unit disassembled, and forget about putting the battery in the battery pouch. The bag is just too small.

Cracked screen after 3 rounds

Perspex screen cover cracked after 3 rounds. Makes reading the screen difficult. MGI service repairer advised my Golf Club Store (to which I sent the cart to as instructed by MGI) that it is not covered under guarantee and he could only replace it with a second hand screen once one becomes available. As the cart is less than 1 month old and the crack was not caused by any fault of mine this is not a satisfactory solution. Rather disappointed with this offer. Show details

Wish I had done this earlier

Good power for my course, which has a hilly back nine. Remote is responsive and easy to learn. Wish there was a little more weight in the front - I "pop wheelies" on a regular basis. Still the rear (extendable) wheel is strong and eliminates tip overs. A bit more plastic on the chassis than I would like, but that keeps the weight down. Still testing wet conditions: light rain & light bog is ok, haven't had it out in a downpour. Show details

Verdict is still out!

I liked the robust look, higher handle, and marginally better value compared to Motorcaddy, and Powercaddy. All good until it rained the 3rd time I used it. Next time out screen had misted up. No problem changing it for new one and so far it has been great, but waiting for the rain! Button controls could be better, as a lot of fiddling to change mode when using, and setting distances particularly cumbersome, and slow compared to my previous 15 yr old trolley. Show details

Great golf buggy, should of bought one sooner

The unit is very easy to unpack and assemble before play, round disappears before you know not having to push. It is not completely all terrain and can tip if you are not careful. I did have to calibrate mine but ever since it has driven straight. Calibration was very easy too. Hardest thing is remembering to charge it but i could nearly get 4 rounds if i pushed it will do 45 holes and only be at half charge. Show details ·  2

Game improver

Since having the Navigator AT my handicap has come down by 4 strokes. I feel fresh and loose during and after the game. Try one and I am sure you will feel the difference. Show details

The perfect golf buggy

This is a fantastic golf buggy. It is very quiet and the powerfull battery can easily last 3 rounds of golf.
The remote control works flawless and I absolutely love the gyro system that keeps the buggy driving straight Show details

Very happy with it

Best thing I ever bought for golf saved my back from pushing up hills. Not tired anymore after I get done playing golf. Every golfer who walks playing should get one will enjoy golf a lot more. Thanks for creating this product. Can't say anything bad about this product. Thank you, Jerry R Show details

Zip Navigator poor design

Poor design , I was sold a Callaway golf bag and it didn't fit the buggy .Buggy arm adjusted downwards resulting in broken buggy , had to replace golf bag and re adjust arm upwards. Battery charger light failed , was advised by MGI to replace charger , light failed again after a while , Powergolf said it was just the charger light , I didn't need to replace the charger after all .

Great buggy except for clumsy hand and remote controls

Very touchy if trying to change speed when using hand control. Speed dial can increase the speed of unit rapidly or alternatively the sensitive touch of the controller can abruptly stop unit. I have had previous electric buggies which were much simpler and safer to use. Also the remote has similar sensitivity issues in particular if the lock button is not activated (hard to see red light in bright daylight). This can lead to unit accidentally being activated with potentially dire consequences, i.e running into another player, into a water hazard, etc. Show details
