* SHIPPING ... Comes in HUGE heavy box. The box was undamaged, but the left motor broke off in transit, and cracked the frame. I decided to repair it myself instead of waiting for replacement parts (or trying to cram it back in the box), & noticed a design flaw - the rear electric motors (rear wheel drive, each wheel has its own motor) are not attached well at all, I believe there's a good chance they will eventually break off. My suggestion, while assembling it, drill a few extra screws into the frame for extra support.
* SPEED / GEARS ... There are actually 4 gears, controlled by a shifter in the middle: Low (2.5 mph), High (5 mph), Reverse and allegedly there's a Park (which i can't find, no matter how much I fiddle with the gear shifter). So realistically there's only 3 gears, though it ~really~ needs a brake or a park (while kids are loading/unloading, etc). It comes with a screw in the shifter to lock out high gear - remove the screw when your kids are ready for more speed.

The fully functional entertainment system is one of the most comprehensive we’ve ever seen, including an MP3 and MP4 player linked to a color LCD screen. This can keep your child entertained whenever they’re bored, and they don’t even have to go for a drive. They can sit in their car and jam out to music or watch a movie – it really will become their favorite place to be.
It is also important to look at factors such as the design of these miniature vehicles. As you will notice, many electric cars for kids replicate the designs of the grown-up vehicles currently the market which your kids will love. The only thing missing are the nice logos of Audi, VW, BMW, Toyota, Jeep, Chevrolet or Buick. Look at the vehicle and determine if it has been made to excellent craftsmanship. Don’t leave anything to chance. Everything from the chassis to the body styling and the decals will tell you whether the vehicle has been manufactured to top quality standards for kids.
When we received our driver’s license, it was the most joyous moment in our lives. It signalled our abilities and our sense of independence. The same is true with children as they drive their electric ATVs, supercars, jeeps, and trucks around the neighborhood or in the park. This helps build their sense of independence which can help boost their self-confidence. This then translates into better self-esteem. The kid’s sense of self-worth is thus, enhanced giving rise to the formation of a healthier self-concept.

In 1998, Fisher-Price undertook a monumental recall of up to 10 million Power Wheels 12 volt and Super 6 volt vehicles manufactured since 1986. The recall and repair program was conducted to replace battery fuses and strengthen battery connectors in order to prevent the units from overheating. The main difference of a post recall Power Wheel is that the original "H" (or on very early Power Wheels, "S") connectors are removed and replaced with the larger, black "A" connectors. If a Power Wheels ride-on was built in or before 1998 and has the Black "A" connectors, then the recall work has probably been performed.
