I bought this for 150 at the black Friday event. After that it went on sale for 129.00 (I imagine because of the bad reviews) I went back to my local Walmart. They honored the online price of 129 without question. I was still a bit leary due to the horrible review I had read.
When putting the car together (which you have to do yourself) it is easy to mistakenly put the motor marked L on the drivers side. Most people I think would do the same thing. However L means the passenger side (which is clearly marked in the instructions) when looking at the car from the front.
This is why the gentlemens review complains that the shifter is reversed. It isn't the shifter is messed up. It is the fact he put the motors in opposite. I almost made the same mistake.
All in all it goes as fast as any other 12v ride on toy my 4 year old has had before.
One thing I would have liked is a larger battery. This battery is much smaller than the ones I have for his last 2 12V ride ons. Also the battery isn't removable. This makes it a bit more of a throw away than other versions I suppose. I am extremely happy with it all in all though and better than that my son is happy.
Thank you for reading my review,
This jeep has lots of power. Built good. I got it for my grandson for Christmas and he loves it.
I bought this for my son. He loves it.
We got this for our son's 3rd birthday. It took forever to arrive at the store, but has worked out pretty well. My husband was able to completely assemble it by himself in a few hours, which is great it means it really does need only one person! The seatbelts aren'y super effective but it has kept him in the vehicle. He loves the spare tire area where he keeps a bunch of toys. Our son loves his "cowboy truck".
This jeep was just what I expected. Well built and well constructed. Instructions were very easy to follow but took a little longer than twenty minutes. My grandson (9) had no problem driving it over driveways or grassy areas.
Last Christmas (Dec. 2012) our boys wanted power wheels trucks, since we needed 2 of them we were hesistant with the price. We ended up finding these at an incredible price (almost half of power-wheels brand). We have had them for 9 months already and have not had any problems. It's just a tad-bit slow, but perfect for our 3 year old and 7 year old. Again no problems with parts, very functional and look great. My nephews have power wheels and there is not much difference at all other than $$$. I always read reviews before buying, hope this helps.
purchased for just turned four year old
easy for him to operate foot pedal and turn steering wheel
just fast (12-volts) enough to give him excitement, safely
adult can easily keep up with rolling vehicle
we have found no dangers of turning over
easy to move locations when not being powered by a child
large size grill cover fits perfectly if outdoor storage is necessary
The gears are reversed, forward is reverse and the hi and low gears are working in reverse only. The SUV only works forward very slowly. Very disappointing.
This product is horrible and the company is horrible to deal with. I got this for my son's birthday. Within two weeks the truck broke. I ordered a new gear box which i had to pay $16.00 for shipping. I fixed that problem and the other gear box broke and the tire stopped working. I ordered both parts paying $16 again for shipping. They have been out of parts for 2 months now. I have emailed the company three times and called weekly. I keep getting told it will be 2-3weeks before i have the parts. I called yesterday and asked to speak with the supervisor, i was told he was at lunch that he would call be back. GUESS WHAT I never got a call back. My son has had this truck for 4 months and has gotten to use it two weeks. PLEASE don't waste your money on this product.
This was a gift for my grandson and he loves it!!!
bought it for my nephew last christmas and he hasnt been able to ride it in a few months have been sent replacement parts and still don't work so there for a waste of money will never buy anything like this again and i wouldnt recommend no battery power ride ons to anyone SAVE YOUR MONEY
My 3 year old Granddaughter just loves driving her vehicle, and with 12 volts, this item is VERY reliable. Exceptional product.
If there was an option to give the Monster Trax SUV negative stars I would do so. SUV was first used in April, by May the back right gear box was completely stripped out. I opened the box and the gears were just shredded to pieces. I tried to buy a new one from the Manufacturer, but they were sold out (probably due to the fact that their product is a piece of junk). 4 weeks later the part was available (for $60). 2 months later the other one went out, which we just ignored and now the thing doesn't even move. 4 months of use is hardly worth the money (no matter how good the deal seems to be). Spend the extra money and get a Power Wheels, or just save it and spend your money on something else.
Bought it for my son last Christmas; stopped working after two weeks. It's a two seater, but seats are too small. Wish I would've spent more on something better.
Bought this for my 3 year for christmas. The worst battery ever!! I charged the battery like the instructions said. My son could only ride for about 10-15 min sometimes less and then the battery would die. My son couldnt enjoy it because it was always plugged up being charged. Im going back to powerwheels.
WORKED MAYBE A WEEK THEN STOPPED! HUSBAND DONE SOMETHING TO IT TO GET IT WORKING AGAIN BUT THE BATTERY DOESN'T LAST!!!! DO NOT BUY THIS!!!!!
i should have known better than to purchase anything but a power wheels...this thing with my 25 pound 3 year old grand son on it , the battery only lasted 20 minutes , i would NOT recommend it to any one it was a waste of my $175.00.
Its a great jeep but the front end is really light and easy to flip over.
I'm returning this Monster Trax SUV. I'm so upset that it doesn't work! My 3year old son was loving it for the whole 20 mins that it worked!
So...I should of known not to buy this....all the reviews say that the wiring is all messed up..well they are right!!!! My son couldn't even drive in the grass because the battery would shut down then you would have to let it cool down..and he could only ride it on pavement.
Not to mention that the battery when fully charged only lasted about 1/2 hour. How can a "knock off" version be this bad????? The body of it is really cute...nothing wrong with the body. It's the wiring and the battery size! Why did this company mess up on the wiring? Why did they make such a small battery for this. So people! Save your money and pay the extra for a POWER WHEELS its well worth it!!!!! DO NOT BUY THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Do not buy this!!!! We had to return it the next day it would not work !!
