I have had my 4 wheel Victory 10 for a year now. I use it on the bike path and use a Handy-bus for transport to shopping, appointments and such. (A warning to those considering a 3 wheel scooter - if you are going to use a handy-bus for transportation the 4 wheel version is considerably more stable. To the point where my local handy-bus organization has considered banning 3 wheel scooters, for safety reasons.) Over all I have been very pleased. My previous machine was a Maxima, and one thing I liked about it more, was that I could bring the seat down lower. The Victory seat is a little high for me but there doesn't seem to be a scooter on the market that will go as low as 15 inches between floor boards and seat. I love the lightness of the scooter and the ease of which it comes apart for transport. I miss the ability to move and readjust the tiller. My Maxima had a toggle leaver that allowed instant changes. On the Victory one must unscrew a large and hard to reach knob, move the tiller, and then tighten it again. A cumbersome endeavour. I love the new design, especially the front fenders. (My Maxima had cracks in the fenders because they extended over the wheels.) The one durability issue I have had is the side reflectors. They are just glued on and have fallen off. Not a big issue for me but it is a cosmetic flaw.

Had our scooter for about 7 months now. Generally the scooter is ok. I would hate to be as disabled as some of the scooter owners I know. This scooter is good for someone that has a companion or is mobile enough to deal with transport issues (loading/unloading). Our main problem at this time is the batteries, or the heart of the machine. Our previous machine had batteries that you could use, charge and sit for a few days then top off and go. These batteries, we are now being told, need to be charged Every Night and for eight hours (not until the charger turns green). Then when we use the scooter and the charge goes down one indicator like, the scooter jams on the brake and won't move. We are being told this is our fault! NOT! It's poor quality batteries.

Hi David, Our standard recommendations, which can be found in the owners manual, suggests charging for 8-12 hours overnight after each use. Also, you should be charging a minimum of 12-14 hours weekly whether or not you are using the product. I hope this helps, Monica

I have had my scooter for a long time about 6 months and had issues concerning my seat breaking at the joint where it folds over. It has cracked on one side of the chair at where the joint is so I stitched it up so it would not flex and guess what the other side broke a month later. So I took my concerns to where I purchased it and was told it would be covered under warranty and would take about two weeks to come in. After about three weeks did not receive a call from them on the status of my chair. I went down to the store and was told that the warranty wouldn't replace it that I would have to pay for it (no one called to tell me) the chair is poorly constructed for a disabled person what's the deal.

Hi Douglas, Can you please send me a private message with your serial number, the name of the provider you are working with and their contact information? I would like to look into this and the warranty. Thank you.

I can use only one arm to lift that seat off. First take a dremel tool with cut off wheel and cut off one notch on the seat stem make sure u dont cut notch that holds seat straight grease stem with silicon I put seat in cut off notch hole and can lift straight up by grabing center of seat back every time with one hand yes battery lights are to bright at night hack saw would work to but dremel tool is best contact me if u need more info

if the seats are so easy to lift off why do you have so many complaints. Handicapped person all by themselves on a cold rainy night and you cant get seat off, you will cut a notch off very fast

Hi Earl, Thank you for your review. The seats on our scooters should lift off without having to make any modifications to the scooter or seat. We do not recommend making such modifications for safety reasons. If you are having an issue with lifting the seat, please let us know and we can assist you. Your provider should also be able to help. Thank you, Monica

Is there any reason that my Victory 10 3 wheel is as noisy as it is. I have several other scooters and this is the noisy of them all. I can be heard coming a block away even had people say it sure is noisy. I have a Victory XL 4 wheel and it is very quite The scooter is only a month old. Other than the noise it is a great scooter

Hi Dan. I work at Pride, and thank you for your feedback. All scooters have a certain degree of operational noise, but if you believe yours is excessive and that there could be an issue, I would recommend contacting your provider to look at the unit. Thank you.

I've owned a Victory 9 - 3 wheel model for 3 years. It is very reliable. I went everywhere i needed to go and it functioned without a problem or need for repair. I recently moved to a Victory 10 - 3 wheel model and fully expect it to operate with the same reliability as the previous one. so far it has! I do wish it had an option to be a little quicker.

Owned for 1 yr. Bought new. I am sole 'rider', weigh about 200 lbs (scooter is rated for up to 400lb cap.). Use 2-3x per week (May-Oct.), mostly in back yard, getting out to shed, bird feeder, trash bins, etc. In 1 yr, took it on about 4 real good riding trips on paved trails (3-10 miles covered on each of these trips, depending on location). So, I would guess my usage is significantly lower than avg. Anyway it is now making noises down in drive area (rear), and is sending up some vibration thru machine to where I can feel it. Getting worse over time. Assume warranty will cover, but I can't seem to get anyone at Pride to respond to emails, directing me what to do, or provide a ph# where to get it serviced! What's with that? Imagine if it were a purchase product email, I would be getting a phone call from them barely before hitting "Send" key!

I have recently replaced my Celebrity X4 (see my avatar) with a four-wheel version of this SC710 and am reasonably happy with it overall. I find it is considerably faster than the rated 4mph (for UK use). If i were to criticize it, I would say that the seat needs adjustable width arms. I can only just fit into it at 260 lbs. Heaven help a 350 lb owner which is the maximum in the spec.

First time owner. I am just trying to get my chair set so it is comfortable. My problem is I don't know how to stabilize the back. I have back problems and need a straight back.

I just stepped up from a Gogo to the victory 10. It's more scooter than the Gogo and my invacare lynks. Not sure about air flight though. May need to use my travel light for that. Don't want it ruined by the airlines. Anyone take 10 on flight?
