I like the bike but when I opened the box the rear fender was bent and after contacting the store that I picked it up at, I was told the only thing they could do was 10% off the purchase price or return it, this was to be a birthday present the day it was picked up at the store, very frustrating to give a gift that was damaged.
I finished paying off this item 2 weeks ago and I have not received a comfirmation that it is in yet, so there is no way that I can rate anything that I don't have yet. They told me that it would take 10 days to get in and I have not received anything on it yet.
I purchased this ride on beetle a few days ago for my 2.5 year old daughter. There isn't very many detailed reviews for it so I thought I'd write one. First off the box is quite large, best to bring a truck or SUV to haul it, it did fit it in my mid size sedan\/car but I had to fold my back seats down and remove the toy from the box to squeeze it in. Best to have someone help carry, not too heavy just awkward to lift due to size. I did manage by my selfthough. As far as assembly, took me about an hour or so, wasn't to difficult. Just follow the instructions and leave macho man persona behind just once. You'll need a Phillips head screwdriver, a small stubby one works best for tight areas. I used a ratchet for the wheels but it does include a little wrench which would do the job for any inferior man without tools. I joke. Performance is great, my only complaint is the headlights only work when the pedal is pushed, my guess is to save battery life, I rewired the headlights to the on\/off switch to bypass this quite simple but don't attempt to do this if you're not experienced with that sort of stuff. Rides fine and won't dissapoint you. All the features listed in the product description work perfectly. I havent let my little on drive yet, she has to wait till Christmas but I tested it out with my hand and even sat in it...it moved not very fast haha. I'm not worried about weight issues for children. I assume it will work fine up to 120-140 lbs. Any more it would be sluggish so no drunken beer runs to the gas station for me. 10 out of 10 would buy again:-) :-)
