    It's a good car, but ...

    There are a couple of things you need to know. First and foremost, the "Battery Charger" they give you should be thrown in the trash. I think the majority of complaints about the battery life stems from the charger, which isn't really a charger, just an AC/DC adapter that is not suited to charge a battery. You need something that automatically shuts off when the battery is full. If you don't already own a trickle charger, go buy one. I have a Battery Tender Jr that I use. I also feel the battery is on the small side and could benefit from a larger one, or do what I did and wire in a second battery. Second, as mentioned before, when you assemble the car, the L and R markings are reversed. Not sure if they were assuming the car would be upside down so they marked it like that or what. Other than that, it's been a great little car. It has rubber strips in the center of the tires so it's pretty quiet on pavement, something not found on more expensive brands. I like the 2 speeds and the little gear shifter with boot. For the price (even adding in the cost of a trickle charger) it's a great value for the money. The overall construction is good too. The plastic is of a good quality. The kids have rammed the car in the curb a few times not paying attention or goofing around and nothing is cracked yet. The white hides the scratches well. I did some modification to ours. In addition to the 2nd battery, I added a working brake pedal, LED headlights and LED tailights. See pictures of the results. (Note: This is only for people who know what they are doing)

    Nice car

    Nice car for the money. Plastic not as thick as one would think and the screws that come with it are not labeled so it made it a little harder. Would be better if it had a metal frame type structure. It has seat belts and everything is screwed in place so keep screwdriver handy if you need to get to the battery for any reason. Great car for younger children or safety concerned parents. The doors dont open at all (I wish they did). It dose seat 2. Very sharp looking car. Iv added L.E.D. head lights and tail lights (cheap and easy to do). Overall i would buy it again.

    Great little car

    I bought this for my three year old grandson and like so many others we had an issue with the battery charging. I called the manufacturer and was told what steps to take to clear the lines so the battery would charge correctly. I'm not sure I remember them step by step but I had to disconnect the red battery wires at the white connector, make sure the switch was in the on position and press on the gas pedal for 20 seconds. I recharged the battery for 8 hours and the car has worked great since then.
    My daughter is almost 2 and she loves this car. She cant stay out of it. Even though her legs are too short to reach the pedal she enjoys sitting in it and turning the steering wheel. Great product, easy to assemble and its cute!

    Great car for the price

    I bought this car back on Christmas 2012, but I'm just now writing this review because my son was just now able to ride it do to the weather. This car was easy to put together, but it's no 20 minute job, and I'm mechanically minded. It was more like 45 minutes. The boy loved it, to see the look on his face, and the joy he was having made it all worth it. That being said there were some issues with the car. First of all bolting down the seat was a nightmare! you couldn't see where the bolts went, and it didn't seem to fit. Finally I left the first bolt loose so I could wiggle the other one into place. Number 2 is the "steering" For some reason there was these little tabs that stopped the wheels from steering. I suspect they were there to assist in the manufacturing of the thing, but someone forgot to bend them out of the way! Once I got that taken care of the car steered just fine. Before that it would only go straight. But everything said and done for the price this was a great buy, and I would highly recommend it!

    Broke within days

    This car appears cheap and easily broken, and sure enough- within two days of use it will only go one speed and one direction (lost two of its three gears.)

    My Comments Keep Disappering.

    This car only works for a short (very short) time, I purchased 2 and both cars do not work at all!

    Doesn't stay charged...waste of money!

    My mother purchased two of these cars for our children last christmas. The children could not ride for 10 minutes without the battery going dead. We intially thought maybe we didn't allow it to charge long enough, but after charging it for almost 24hrs it did the exact same thing. I would say that maybe we bought a lemon, but for two cars to do the same thing is more than a lemon; it is absolutely ridiculous. This is an item that you can apply the old saying " You get what you pay for!" I wouldn't tell my worst enemy to purchase one of these for their children.

    Broken with misssing parts

    Bought for my daughter 4th birthday. Removed care from box and realized the box had been previously opened and car front panel was broken. Clearly, this was a return that got put back on the shelf broken. With my daughter crying as to why she cant have her car, we put it back in the box and to reload it back into our suv and explain that we would try to find another one. Ok Day 2, car returned to different store because walmart had no more in stock. In process of putting car together, it's missing the wind sheild!!!..UGHH!!. okay back to walmart to see if we can get the windhsield off the previous return to place on the 2nd one. 2 walmarts, one sells us a broken car that was returned and placed back on the shelf and the other sells us one with missing parts!!! I swear if we have anymore problems with this car, it will be returned for a full refund and we will make our pruchases elsewhere!! :(

    Awesome product for a good price!

    I bought 2 of these cars (each in a different color) for my 3 & 8 year olds for christmas and they love them!!! It was easy to put together and charge them, they work great!! We have taken 1/2hr trips around our neighborhood and the kids enjoy riding them in the back yard! As long as you follow the charging directions and do not over or under charge them they will continue to work fantastically. I have even riden them myself despite the weight limit of 100lbs. Fun for my 8 year old son and my 3 year old daughter! And I got them at a great price, especially considering they are built for 2 kids at a time!
