Bring the fun and excitement of the hit movie Cars 2 to life behind the wheel of your very own talking Lightning McQueen racecar! Three sound modes let you choose racecar sounds and real Cars 2 movie phrases in English or in Spanish, or racecar sounds only. And it really drives 3.5 mph (max.) forward and reverse on hard surfaces and grass! Includes 6-volt battery and charger. Requires 1 AA battery for sounds.
The Fisher-Price Power Wheels Disney/Pixar Cars 2 Lightning McQueen race car lets your kids relive the excitement of Cars 2 in their very own talking car. Designed for outdoor use on hard surfaces and grass, this vehicle features three sound modes that include real Cars 2 movie phrases in English or Spanish and race car sounds. With two forward drive speeds, one reverse speed, and a 6-volt rechargeable battery, this Lightning McQueen racer offers hours of fun for ages three and up.
Steel Frame is Built for Safety
The Power Wheels Lightning McQueen race car is constructed with a sturdy frame that supports a maximum weight of 65 pounds. Colorful racing decals, a rear spoiler, and a side-mounted dual exhaust highlight its durable red plastic exterior. For added safety, the interior of the vehicle features smooth contours and rounded edges to protect against cuts and scratches.
Three Sound Modes Offer Enhanced Play
To help bring Lightning McQueen to life, this racer includes three sound modes. Press the button on the steering wheel to select between movie phrases in English with race car sounds or in Spanish phrases with race car sounds. There's also an option to enjoy race car sounds only for realistic fun.
Two Speeds for Beginners and Advanced Users
Whether your child is a beginner or an advanced driver, the Lightning McQueen race car's two driving speeds can accommodate him or her. The vehicle features an electronic power lock braking system that automatically stops the vehicle when your child's foot lifts from the pedal. A shifter with high-speed lockout for beginners provides custom control of driving speeds--low speed for normal cruising, and high speed for maximum 3-1/2-mph racing. The vehicle can also shift into reverse for convenient backing up.
The Power Wheels Lightning McQueen race car performed remarkably well in testing. The vehicle took less than 60 minutes to assemble and 18 hours to fully charge. Its solid construction and low center of gravity provided optimal handling and balance. However, for a race car, a 12-volt battery would have been more appropriate to provide sufficient power. Despite this concern, kids will likely appreciate the sleek styling, powerful handling, and custom controls.

Putting together my 3-year-old's new Lightning McQueen Power Wheels car took the better part of my morning and early afternoon. Because some of the pieces did not align correctly, it was hard to do this without a little bit of help. The directions were easy to follow, and one of the tools necessary to screw on bolts was included. The only tool you will need to have on hand is a Phillips screwdriver.
Most of the stickers were already on the car, but the majority of them required me to place them. Some of the stickers already in place had bubbles or small creases in them, and I probably would have done a better job affixing them myself. The stickers I had to place myself were all on the same sheet of paper, and a few were a pain to remove from the sheet. On a couple of them, I managed to pull off the backing, and the sticky part was not showing. I had to then remove the sticker at a different place to make sure only the sticky part came off of the sheet.
I had a little bit of confusion because there is a new set of directions for where to place the stickers on a separate sheet of paper rather than inside of the instructions guide. I had forgotten about the extra sheet of paper, and followed along in the instructions guide. If there is a really huge difference on sticker placement, I missed it. But if you want it to be 100% perfect, then don't forget about the extra sheet like I did.
The Lightning McQueen Power Wheels car runs on a 6-volt battery and the battery and the charger are supplied. The 6-volt battery requires a bit of maintenance I wasn't prepared for; it must charge for at least 18 hours, and no longer than 30. When not in use, you have to charge it at least once per month. You will also need 1 AA battery (not included) to operate the sound effects in the steering wheel. There are English or Spanish phrases, as well as car sounds only. Set your preferred language, and the car sounds are mixed in with the phrases.
DRIVING THE CAR:
The Lightning McQueen Power Wheels car is intended for children 3 and up with a maximum weight of 65 lbs. I expect that my daughter will get a couple of years of use out of this car. We took it out for a spin this morning, and I was surprised by how quickly she was able to get the hang of using it. Pushing on the gas pedal is the easy part for her; steering the wheel to change course will take a bit more work. I was happy that she wasn't scared about riding in it, and loved listening to her gleeful giggles as she drove her very first car. Her first spin didn't last very long, but I suspect that she will be begging us to take her out "driving" again really soon.
A parent can easily keep up with the car with light jogging or fast paced walking (depending on your stride); younger children may need assistance with the steering so they don't run into trees or the side of your house. The plastic on the car is not as durable as I had hoped, so it will quickly show wear and tear if you and your child are not careful.
A FEW THINGS TO BE AWARE OF:
1. You should recharge the battery after each use for at least 14 hours. The battery can stay inside the car while you charge it.
2. Don't use the car during wet weather because it can damage the electrical switches.
3. Avoid using the car around sandy or gravely sidewalks; if the sand/gravel gets up into the car, it can cause it to jam and the motor might stop working.
4. To clean the car, use a DRY soft cloth. Never use soap on it or spray it down. The plastic pieces of the car can be polished with a non-wax furniture polish for a shiny look. If you do this, remember to use a soft cloth.
5. No more than one child should ride in the car at a time. This is a one-seat vehicle only.
Any child who loves Lightning McQueen is going to love riding around in their very own car. The speed is perfect for younger children, because supervision is a must for use of this car. Parents will love that over exertion isn't necessary to keep up with the speed, while the child will still think he or she is "driving fast".
A lot of upkeep is required to make sure the battery stays in good working condition. If a parent or guardian isn't willing to take that into consideration, then this is probably not the best outdoor toy for your child. The instruction guide is very simple to follow, and should be read before you begin assembling the car.
I definitely don't regret getting this car for my daughter; she loves Lightning McQueen and the Cars movie, so this was a very special treat for her. I'm sure she will get a lot of use out of it, and I am truly excited to take her out with the car on future outings.
Because of this, I was thrilled when I came across this Cars 2 Power Wheels. Though my daughter is still a little too short to reach the pedal (it's designed for children 3-7 years old), she enjoys sitting in it and playing with the steering wheel (the Cars 2 sound effects and phrases make a fun horn). When we walk through our garage, she often points to the car and begs to have a seat. She even waves goodbye to it sometimes. Next Spring/Summer, she'll be a perfect fit. Until then, a few of the neighborhood kids have enjoyed taking a ride.
The assembly instructions where clear and easy to follow, though it took me more than an hour to assemble all the parts and apply all the stickers (the stickers took the most time). Since I'm a perfectionist, there's a good chance other parents will be able to do it faster.
I like that the car can go in both forward and reverse. The steering has a fair amount of play in it, but overall turns fairly easily.
Two disadvantages I see are: (1) No seat for a friend to sit in--it's only big enough for one child. (2) It's only 6-volts compared to equally priced 12-volt cars. Where 6-volts can extend the life of the motor, it also sacrifices some of the speed and power. I have read that it's possible to convert 6-volt Power Wheels to 12-volts by making a few modifications and adding a second battery, but my guess is that this voids the warranty and lessons the life of the car. From what I can see, the 6-volts should do just fine.
The Product Description says the "sound box" requires 3 AA batteries, but the one I received only needed one AA battery (as is listed by the Manufacturer description). Not sure why the two descriptions contradict one another. Either way, keep in mind that the AA battery isn't included (the 6-volt one is, so that's the most important thing).
Overall, this car is great, and I think it will be loads of fun for my daughter by the time she can reach the pedal.
