I was a little skeptical when I looked at this online at Amazon and I decided that their return policy would protect me in that event. I ordered the jack online and received it right away and it was packaged in another box with some packing paper along with some other ordered items. The plastic case that the Jack came in had a tiny dent in one corner and not easy to see but, I'm picky about quality and craftsmanship, but I won't let the dent bother me. I was well pleased when I took the Jack out of the case and used it for the first time. It is very easy to use and it performs exactly as stated by the manufacturer. It has a + slot at the top the of the jack where the the car body lifting point on some vehicles that have this feature like mine, fits in the slot. Just use care and get it in there properly, it is a safety feature and very thoughtful. It has a little light on the contol switch but it is not very bright however, it will let you see around the jack as you are using it. Better than no flashlight if you did not have one or one that was not working. This little electric jack raised my car up in about 1 to 2 minutes with it plugged in right from the cigarette lighter with no problem. For a disabled person, it is a great tool to have in your car if you ever need to change a tire especially at night. I am very impressed and pleased with this Pilot 12 Volt Jack.

I looked at a lot of reviews on this type product and this seemed to be the best jack in the price range that I could afford. I drive a Ford F150 with about 1000#'s of tools in the bed. I wasn't sure that this jack would be heavy duty enough to lift a vehicle of this size and weight, but to my suprise it does a great job. Just make sure when you go to raise the vehicle that it doesn't roll in either direction, and lift stright up, not at an angle and you will be happy with your purchase.

Just used this jack for the first time for a serious job...other than testing it. Did pretty well. Main issue I saw was some slop in the drive train (gear box) that caused it to rattle some when not under much load. I removed the 4 screws (allen wrench) that holds the cover over the gears. Found that the plastic cover holds a bearing that holds one end of the middle gear. So you wouldn't want to damage the plastic cover for sure. Also found that one gear had no grease on it. So using axle grease...I lubed all gears and bearings (ball type) very well. Not so sure about tolerances as far as the bearings and gears...only time and some use will tell for sure. Also some grease on the main screw. Was a bit quieter after the new lube.

Good idea to use a block of wood between this jack and your frame...top cap is plastic. Would be real easy to do some damage unless you have it placed just right.

* One newer issue after removing all 4 wheels from a 1/2 ton 4x4 (3100 lbs)...the base of the jack (part that is on the ground) bent in use...this is the longer end...so the metal the base is stamped from is too light in gauge. I put this part of the jack in a vise and bent it back straight by hand. Weak. I was using on a fairly soft gravel driveway.

So you'd definitely want to block at least one of the wheels remaining on the ground to avoid putting any side-strain on the base. And probably a good idea to use a 2X6 under the base?

This jacks draws some current...would work on the side of the road for maybe one wheel...but you'll need to put a charger on the battery if doing all four.

Dropping to 3 stars. IMO...after looking at the selection of motorized jacks available on Amazon...they all seem to be variations on a theme...

I tried to lift one wheel of my 2006 Dodge Charger and as soon as the jack hit resistance, it stopped. And then it wouldn't go back down. I had to get out my floor jack and lift the car so I could release pressure on the electric jack to lower it. Lifting one wheel of this car is well within the 4100-pound capacity of the jack, so I have to assume the jack is defective. I plan to order another one after I return this one, since if it works I think it will be a nice addition to my garage.

EDIT: The second jack arrived today. I plugged it in, and it did lift the Charger, although reluctantly the first time. I then tried it on my '72 Continental Mark IV, a tank of a car. It lifted one wheel of the Mark easier then it did the Charger, so I tried the Charger a second time. This time it was easier. The jack seemed very stable, even at the top of it's lift with the Mark. I think it will be a handy addition to my garage, so I'm going to keep it.

The other negative about the second jack was that all three extra fuses were broken and small pieces of glass were scattered throughout the plastic storage box. Plus, Amazon's packaging is getting downright horrible.

2ND EDIT: I have used this jack for 2 years now, and it has worked flawlessly. One thing I did was to buy this converter:
Max Burton 200W Converter

With the converter, I don't have to have the car running to be able to power the jack. That makes it safer and also seems to give the jack plenty of power. This arrangement has worked so well that I'm getting ready to purchase a second jack so that I can rotate my tires easily.
