    My son received this toy for Christmas. It's a cute toy and he was really excited about it, unfortunately it was a dud. We've had the same problem as most of the other reviewers. It just stops working. It started the very first time we tried it. It'll start to go, then just stops responding. You have to hit a button on the car to get it going again.This would be slightly less annoying if you were at least able to get it going again with one of the remote buttons, but no dice. We tried changing the batteries (which were brand new) as well as standing as close as possible to it (which kinda defeats the purpose) just in case. It was all in vain anyway. It still doesn't work properly. The sounds and music seem to go on forever even after it stops working, forcing you to get up and shut it off or listen to an unresponsive toy talk to you for an additional 15 minutes.

    I signed on VTech's website to get contact info for this product as I had the same problems with this product as the other reviewer had. The toy goes less than a minute, and you have to restart it by going to the toy and pushing one of the buttons. I think I did finally get a minute of play time out of it earlier. It's like the RC signals get mixed up with trying to use the direction keys along with the steering wheel, and the car decides to stop. The kids will re-start the car, but as an adult playing with it since at this age parents have to engage their children in play still, it's a let down having to restart it every few seconds. I'm going to try and return the product to the retailer, as I am hoping that if the retailer plays with the toy they will agree that it's not worth playing with. Otherwise, the price was decent, but the design poor.

    Bought this for our 3 year old on his birthday. The controls are super easy and he was having a blast. After 10 minutes, he put it aside for some other toys, then cam back to play with it the next morning and it no longer works. I thought maybe we had turned something off, or that the batteries had dies, but we tried everything, including replacing the batteries in the remote and car with no success. I checked the web for some tips/advice and it is literally filled with the same issues with this toy. Fun for a few minutes, then stops working completely. Toys really ought to last more than 10 minutes. Now, we just have an upset 3 year old who wants to play with his toy but it won't work.

    I had the same problems as most. I took it apart to find a worn and stripped gear wheel that connects the main gear on the rear axle bar to the gear housing. In other words it has a bad transmission. Lol. My sons loves this thing and I made a promise to fix it. I been to every RC Car and hobby shop I could find but to no avail. I also almost forgot to mention that the gears weren't made from the same material like they should of been and the lubricant they used dissolved the plastic teeth on the gear. So if your car isn't running this is probably the problem. Don't take it apart. Bring it back and have it replaced.

    My son (19 months) loved this toy at first! He wanted it out of the box as soon as he opened it for Christmas. We turned it on and he played for a good 10 minutes with it before we started noticing it stopped working. We continued to hit a button the car and then it would go off 15-20 seconds later. We changed the batteries as the instructions say if this happens and the same thing happened. My son still brings me this toy to play with only to become uninterested as soon as it turns off. I'm greatly disappointed in this toy, it makes me question buying from vTech again.

    My son got this car as a gift and we thought it was really neat. The first time we started playing with it the car continued to just stop running. You would need to turn it off and on to get it restart. Then after less than 2 days it completely stopped working. We changed the batteries in both the car and the remote, it still would not run. It would talk and tell you to push the buttons but it would not run or respond to pushing the buttons. The light on the remote would light up so you knew it was working. Very poor in my opinion and not worth spending a penny on it.

    This toy is obviously not made correctly. I came on the website looking for a copy of the manual because our car didn't seem to be working right. After reading the reviews I can see it is working the same as everyone elses. It worked for a minute or two, now we can not get it to go. You can turn the wheels with the remote and pushing the button seems to change the music and honk the horn, but no luck getting it to move forward or backward. This was a gift, so we did not keep any of the packaging, so I guess we are stuck with it. Bad toy - don't waste your money.

    I bought this for my two year for Christmas, and was so disappointed. We took it out of the box and tried it, and it never worked. The car by itself works just fine, all the lights and music and quiz feature respond, but the remote does not seem to be able to communicate with the car. The light on the remote works when you push the buttons, but when we push the buttons, the wheels don't even spin on the car. Tried replacing the batteries, but still nothing. I was really let down, usually I have nothing but good things to say about VTech toys.

    We have exchanged one of these remote cars hoping it was just a fluke that the first one didn't work worth a hoot . It continually turns off when using the remote control. It will MAYBE go forward or backward for 2 feet , then shuts down and don't think about "turning " the wheel !! We are so dissappointed by this product ,(my grandson loves the car ) as usually Vtech product are consistently good. Defiantly would not recommend buying this to anyone.
