Rated 4 out of 5Â by JPTINKTINK Apprehensive but pleasantly surprised
I bought this for my 5 year old boy without reading the reviews first. After reading the reviews, I thought I had made a mistake in purchasing this. But so far we have been pleasantly surprised. It works well as described (note we have only been using it INDOORS, though). As for battery draining,we have discovered that as long as you turn the power switches to OFF on the vehicle itself and on the remote when not using them, the batteries have had no drainage problems. So far everything has held together (although I will admit the battery cover doesn't want to stay on, but we discovered you can still use the remote without the battery cover on - or you could just tape the cover on).

So excited when my sis-in-law got this for my son for Xmas 2013: I had been considering it but hit the cap of my budget.
We opened it the next morning & so depressed when it dind't work :-( The remote lit up, but the car did nothing; tried brand new batteries two different times & nothing. Got to the store to exchange/return, & THRILLED to find they have ONE in stock!!! Came home, inserted batteries and... nothing. Same deal. So sad to see the look on his face when it failed to work a second time.

What a hit I was with this gift for my 3 year old grandson. He would not put it down. It works great and is a fun fun toy. You can't miss with this one!!!

We purchased 2 of these cars and they were totally awesome. They are a lot of fun but neither one lasted for more than 1/2 hour. One lost it wheels and the other part of the remote stopped working. What a shame. They were awesome while they worked but very poorly made.
