AWESOME and heavy duty go-kart. EXCELLENT purchase!
on May 6, 2006
I bought this go-kart for my five year old son and he loves it. However, so do I! I'm not sure who has more fun on it. ;O) The car is very heavy and solid. It's not one of those junky plastic things. It's made by HONDA, so that fact alone speaks for itself. The car is quick, but safe. It's super quiet. It charges easily and runs for a good amount of time. My son is bored for the day before the charge runs out. It is easily stopped by pulling the t-bar on the back if necessary. My son finds it easy to steer and he maintains perfect control of it while driving. IT IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
The only issue I have with the car (and it's not a huge one) is that the plastic trims could secure better to the car. They shake a bit because they are held on by plastic overlays on pipes. My son bumped something lightly and the front popped off because a piece cracked. I'm always afraid they're going to crack on a bump or something. Replacement parts are available at a reasonable cost, but I expect reasonable use of the ones I have first before I have to buy them. Otherwise, the car is EXTREMELY well built with a welded frame and top of the line mechanical parts.
I know the price tag is an issue for some people, but I have no argument for that point in my case. I bought mine on clearance at Walmart for only $125.00!!!! Can you say bargain? Apparently, no one wanted these at the initial high price or possible did not know they were there. WHATEVER! If there were more, I would have bought all of them. GO GET ONE!
