I don't know why this product has good reviews. Maybe from people who wrote the review as soon as they opened it. Multiple questions, upon some research, confirm and my issue is not unique to me. The car will light up if you press the buttons but the remote stops working after a few minutes and I cannot get it to start working. To Amazon's credit they replaced my item the same day and the new one immediately worked just great for a couple minutes but then the same problem happened. I will be returning this gift. This was a Santa present and I have a very distraught child.
