Thank you sir - 2 things of interest here which may or may not help in the final decision.
When I tried to lift my foot from the accelerator to hit the brake the accelerator seemed to stick and because the distance from the grass to where I finally grabbed cement on the cart path was barely a foot, the cart pulled me right into the wall immediately and didn't even slow down (regardless if I hit the brake).
The 2nd thing is what the golf professional himself told me on the phone - he said (and I quote): "It's interesting, we had to decrease the accelerators on some of the carts earlier this year because they were driving too fast".
And thanks again for your assistance.
