* ASSEMBLY ... You have to assemble *everything* - absolutely nothing comes pre-assembled. For example, see the rear roll-bar in the photo? That alone is 16 pieces to be screwed together, not including the decals. Allow 90 minutes, but my repair took another 90 minutes, making assembly time a little over 3 hours total for me (from box to complete unit).
Another factor we took into account is the authenticity of the product. We want to remain culturally relevant, whether it is using a keyed-ignition for the design or a push-button starter, a manual or automatic stick shift. Whatever a child witnesses in their everyday life with Mom and Dad, or other adults on TV, we wanted it to reflect in our products — the look and the feel! Who wouldn’t want the authentic chrome-look of wheels on a Ford F-150 truck?

The third recall in 2000 involved the Harley-Davidson motor cycle ride-ons, In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Fisher-Price is recalling about 218,000 battery-powered Power Wheels Harley-Davidson motorcycle ride-ons for repair. The foot pedals, which activate the ride-ons, can stick in the "on" position. Children can be injured when the motorcycle ride-ons fail to stop and strike other objects. The recalled Power Wheels Harley-Davidson motorcycle ride-ons have model numbers 74290, 74293 (with a red body) and 74298 (with a black body). A "Power Wheels by Fisher-Price" logo is located on the left side of the seat on the product, and the model number is located on a label in the battery compartment. Only model numbers 74290, 74293 and 74298 are being recalled. These vehicles are intended for children 3 and older, and the vehicles' speed is 2.5 or 5 mph. Toy, mass merchandise and discount stores, and Harley-Davidson dealerships sold the motorcycle ride-ons nationwide from September 1999 through August 2000 for about $190 for the red vehicle and $700 for the black vehicle.
So far this thing rocks! Great for the price. Works well- lights and sound are great. The remote is an awwwwesome feature, as we bought this for a 2 year old. With this price point you miss a few frills though. You manually have to switch it from automatic to remote mode, and the button to do this is in the car. It is also controlled by either all manual or all remote. When in remote mode, the child isn't in control at all (which may be good for some!). I just wish my daughter could press the gas and I could steer. However, when using he remote the child can override the steering, though it doesn't sound good when this happens (like it may break?) :/ Also, there is no battery level or charge indicator- you just have to guess and wing it. Having two speed options is great. However, the stop and go is a really jolt-y on the fast speed though. The music feature on horn is really fun. The car has an MP3 connection that works, though nowhere to place any device you'd have in there. Not an important feature to me, so no big deal. Directions were a nightmare- super vague. But all in all, it is a fantastic product for the price! I love it and really hope it lasts a long time!
So while my kids & I have a blast with it, I still have mixed feelings because we so rarely use it. And they don't really ask for it either. It's a pain to pull out, a pain to store it, and a pain to keep charged up. I have an oversized lot (huge yard, fairly flat), yet it's not even enough, and it's frustrating for everyone as the Jeep gets stuck on a stick or a clump of grass. We have a blast taking it to the neighborhood playground, but loading it up is a chore (I have to take the rear seat out of the minivan in order to transport it). I have a feeling for many people, this is like the exercise machines that get used once or twice then get forgotten.
Safety –the tires on these kids ride-on toys might not be pumped up to 2 bars with air, but you can teach your tot how to feel the tires for hardness (acting this out is a great start for later life skills), check the headlights and tail lights to see that they aren’t broken, and things like this. If the car has space for two you can also teach them that driving more carefully when you have a passenger is a good idea, and encourage your kids to pay more attention to how their passenger is reacting to their driving.
Kawasaki is a well-known brand when it comes to motorcycles. In fact, it is one of the preferred brands for motocrossers and daredevils. Of course, this is not the only reason why you should consider giving your child the Kawasaki KFX from the Power Wheels toy division of Fisher-Price. With a very rugged all-terrain vehicle look, this is one of the best kids electric cars you can ever give as a gift.
This is another excellent set of power wheels from Fisher-Price. Working doors, spacious storage in the rear, 2 speeds – topping out at 5 mph, 12-volt battery life, and the option of restricting the speed to 2.5 mph, all advance for a really cool jeep. And if the shrieks of joy are not loud enough to hear, there is also a microphone, and it also plays a range of tunes over its radio, perfect for a youngster who loves to sing.
Some of the features that you will appreciate in this miniature power Cadillac include the two seats, well functioning doors that will open and close, a battery charge indicator as well as a chrome grill and chrome wheels.These power wheels have that signature Cadillac Escalade styling that is instantly recognizable.

A great ride-on with many safety features including safety belts and high-speed lock-out as well as power-braking. Two bucket seats for ultimate fun with friends.
After comparing a half dozen of these motorized ride-on toys, we discovered they are VERY similar, the main differences being the style (truck, car, tractor, etc). For example, I have complaints about the quality of this Fisher Price Jeep, but in fact it's higher quality than some of the other units we compared (even more expensive ones). So a lot of these comments apply equally to all Fisher Price motorized toys (and even some other brands as well):
