'Santa' brought two of these for my kids this past Christmas (they were 10 and 5 at the time). I ordered them after hearing rave reviews and crossed my fingers that they wouldn't end up buried in the back of the garage like a lot of other ride-ons we have. My husband assembled them without any trouble. He did use a rubber mallet (as suggested in the directions I believe) to make sure the steering and wheels were on securely. I am pleased to say that my kids have ridden them almost every day since Christmas. They use them in the garage most of the time, and occasionally on the driveway. They work best on smooth surfaces though, so the garage is the best place. My husband and I have tried them out, as have many neighbor kids and even my Dad. So far they are holding up very well, too. I highly recommend them! Thanks Overstock for a great deal on a great product!
