Some have complained about the price. The nearest dealer here in south New Jersey is over in the Philadaelphia area. I tried three-four times to contact them through the online email URL with no response each time. So I went to amazon who came through again.

The x2 is everything it is advertised to be. Easy to operate, reliable, quiet, Eco-friendly and more than sufficient to my needs. I live about 1.5 miles from my usual golf course and ride it over, around eighteen holes and home again with battery power to spare. I'm something of a tubby so am at the top end of the weight range for the x2 and have no trouble Segwaying about our village and around the course.

One problem I have had is due to the uneven terrain on the golf course. Because of uneven terrain, the golf bag and holder tend to get thrown side to side when riding the course. After almost getting thrown off once when the bag and stand became disconnected from the frame, I now make it a habit to check the fastening system regularly for fit and tightness. I also have wrapped two bungee cords around the front and rear attachment points as safety belts should it become loose again. But don't let this deter anyone from buying a Segway. They are great little machines if used properly and appropriate care is taken.

These machines are cool but more than a little pricey. So even if you are willing to pay the price, do you some checking first:
1. Some golf courses object to these carts because it reduces the revenues from renting conventional carts. They may want a fee.
2. There is a history of accidents on these machines. For example, in 2010, the CEO of the company died when he ran a Segway off a cliff. Some golf courses are concerned with insurance liabilities for mishaps on their property. They may ask you to sign a waiver or, more common, simply not allow them to be used on their course unless they are rented by the course (and they have covered the insurance issue).
You may hear excuses from management about how they are bad for the turf or whatever but it's a smokescreen.
User cost, golf course revenue loss and liability. That's why you don't see many of them around on golf courses.

Only buy from authorized dealers!!Software upgrades cost $200, if you don't buy a unit that is current.Shipping to the factory costs upwards of $150-$200 per direction.Bad Batteries are about $850 to replace.Buy from an authorized dealer. Ask questions. Be smart. Don't fall for "U can get it from a dealer for about $1,000 less" kind of crap. Buyer Beware - you really do get what you pay for.

While a great product, do not pay this price. Any Segway dealer can get it for you for about 1K less.
