Just got the 3 wheel model and so far so good. It's well built and easy to use. We still have to practice dis assembly and re assembly to get it in and out of our car trunk. We live in an apartment, and I was surprised to see how easily it fits and maneuvers in the cramped space where we keep it. I wish it could handle steeper grades, it's a little hilly here. When I do go up or down hill, it seems a little unstable. Just try to go real slow with no sharp turns.

On 1/26/15 we bought a GO-GO Sport power 3 wheel scooter for my husband and used it for the first time on 1/27. Apparently, the steering column was resting on the foot pad and was vibrating/bouncing enough to break/crack the horn button. This caused the button to become misshaped and depressed in the "on" position. Now we have a scooter that emits a continuous unrelenting horn when in use. I returned it to the store on 1/28 for repair, When I took it back for repair I noticed that the less expensive scooters have the horn on the top of the drive control assembly so it is protected. My dismay at my husband having had the scooter for only 24 hours and now have no horn has prompted this email. I realize that, technically, it is my fault as I am the one that assembled and disassembled it for my husband, but, why on earth would a take-apart vehicle designed for mobility challenged persons have such a poor placement/design? Then to top it all off, I am informed by the store repair technician that the horn is in a solid state soldered unit that can not be replaced so the only solution is to permanently disconnect the horn altogether. Now, when we get it back, there will be no horn for backup mode or to catch someone's attention if need be. To say I am upset is putting it mildly so I felt I needed to relieve my displeasure by letting you know what happened and hope that you revisit the horn assembly and design and make appropriate changes. Overall, we are happy with our purchase but this situation is a fiasco and I will be posting a review to reflect this problem so others can benefit from our experience.

I just took my Go-Go Sport on it's maiden trip and it performed super. My husband purchased the heavy duty batteries and they held charge great.Plenty of power even up and down hills. It broke down easily and fit perfect in our Avalanche. Very easy to manuver in tight spaces.

Batteries only lasted 3 months will not honor warranty

Hi David, The email that you shared is correct - you can take your chair to a provider, or it looks like even Progress Mobility and they will honor the warranty. They just can't service your chair in your home. Another provider may be able to, have you tried any others? The batteries should still be under warranty.

Unsubscribe david thompson I have sent 2 emails with no response gogo scooter S8113214227fv0 I purchased this scooter on July 7th 2014. For the past couple of weeks the batteries will not hold a charge. I see they are under warranty for 6 months but don't see who to contact. Any help you can give me would be appreciated. I have contacted a dealer here and they say my only recourse is to buy new batteries. I purchased the upgraded batteries. Thank you David Thompson

Hi David, Can you send me a message with the details of this - the provider's name, your serial number and contact information? It is very rare that batteries would only last three months.

I gave it a lower stars on Durability cause I only had since Sept 3rd 2014. Its VERY easy to use from break down to putting it back together. Its performance is great EXCEPT! Braking! It dose NOT STOP as soon as you lent go of the controls. It Drifts another scooter length ...about 3-4 ft. So make sure you give stopping distance of the 4' so you don't drift into some one or in front of a car! Another thing I advise Don't bother with the rear basket! The safety book says Not to reach behind you Well that's where They put the basket! & Yes the scooter Will tip While you struggle to use the rear basket. Another thing is when you turn the seat to get out the Basket turns also into any one or any thing like Walls! So don't waste your money! Rear baskets on the prides are Useless & Dangerous! I cant think Why they don't have a Bigger basket for shopping on the front & do away with the Plastic Front basket...which will hold a gal of milk & a loaf of bread! Tho not sure on cold day how well.

I previously owned two Go Go's, the last an Ultra, and this Sport, which I have owned a year, has been both better and worse in some ways. I got it because of the increased carrying capacity (and it's 25 lbs more in Europe than in North America!) and range. I use it, mainly outside, for 2-3 trips a day and it lives in the back of the car. The Ultra fit nicely into the back of our Nissan Versa, but this machine is a tight fit and subsequently harder to get in and out, so it is now in the Volvo station wagon. It is also heavier, and carrying the battery in to charge it does not favour my arthritic knees. The batteries had to be replaced after one year, while the Ultra batteries lasted about three years. I had the same problem with power/speed loss as others after the initial couple of months, although all those aggravating LED lights are still there. Because of the extra weight capacity, it is much more useful for grocery shopping, but the tiny little basket could do with enlargement. I end up hanging bags from the steering handles, which is probably not the best for them. I also had a problem with the rubber matting coming loose twice - it appears to attached by double-sided tape. Having said all that, it is a rugged beast and goes almost anywhere, depending on how much bone shattering you want. The clearance is not great and the small anti-tip wheels at the back are a definite problem "off-road" as any loose grasses, leaves, dirt, etc. quickly builds up and brings you to a halt. As mentioned, the power and range have fallen off considerably from when new, but I yet to be stranded. Some trips home become deathly slow at times. It remains reliable, however, despite leaving it outside under a BBQ cover during the West Coast monsoon season. It will probably become like the Volvo - never quite totally pleasing, but refusing to die.

I rented a scooter at an Adventure Park (Sea World) and found it to be a game changer. After 5 hours of “scootin” around I was still in great shape (suffer from extreme fatigue [stroke], especially from walking) and raring to go for more (which was indeed very “rare”). So I bought this model prior to a trip (via train) to downtown Chicago (lots of walking, museums, parks, and such) . Why did I wait so long? On to the review: Durability – Excellent thus far. On our trip to Chicago, ran into several things … irregular road conditions , very cracked (uneven) sidewalks, and roughly patched “handicapped ramped curbing” (which just about rattled my teeth out). The scooter handled them all without showing any signs of wear, rattling/shaking, or ill-handling. Oh, I may have hit a few things during my “scooter shake-down” without any noticeable changes to the machine. Ease of Use – Operating the scooter is easy and very intuitive. However, tearing the scooter apart for travel is moderately taxing (for me as I lost much of my upper body strength and fatigue easy). This is why I gave it less than a 5-Star Rating (your experience may vary, I can live with it, could be worse). Style – I’ve compared this model with just about every “portable/travel” scooter out there. This scooter is by far the coolest looking portable scooter on the market (IMHO). Performance/Speed – The speed is perfectly adequate for any situation I’ve been in. Some commented that the SLOWEST SPEED was “too slow”; however, I found that when making tight maneuvers (e.g. , getting on train, parking in tight spaces, walking thru museum, etc..) sometimes you can’t go too slow and the slowest speed is appreciated (IMHO). The FASTEST SPEED is completely adequate for most situations (people you will be walking with won’t be able to keep up), 5 mph is faster than you think. I’m happy with its “top end” and I used to be a speed freak. Performance/Range – Completely satisfied. After using the scooter continuously for 6 hours in downtown Chicago (at various speeds and up-hill, down-hill grades) it just started to show a less than full charge indication.

After months of research, I bought a GoGo Sport three wheeler. I have used a Jazzy 1640 power chair for over a year. I did not want to buy a lift, along with the required vehicle. I am six feet four and weight 300 lbs. I cannot walk more than one hundred feet. I honestly know. that now I can break the Sport down by myself. I can load and unload it into, and out the trunk of my car. The Sport three wheeler has a very tight turning radius. It has plenty of power. Oh by the way, another reason I went for the three wheel model is I wear size 15 shoes. The three wheel model gives me the required foot and leg room. I will keep you posted about it durability.

Because of my height (6'-2") I wanted the stability of four wheels. I had rented a scooter before, for special occasions, and decided I needed one of my own, full-time. This model is, for me, as close to perfect as I can imagine. The larger tires, higher ground clearance and increased leg room are all ideal for me. And it is so easy to take apart and load into a friend's pickup that I am able to enjoy a lot of things I have been denied since my stroke three years ago. The indicator lights on the control panel are easy to read, day or night. The only problem I have is with the front is easy for me to take off, but difficult to put back on. But overall, I am overjoyed with this product. I really love it.

Hi Will. I work at Pride, and I am glad to hear that you like the scooter. All product reviews are automatically forwarded to the appropriate product manager, so your feedback regarding the basket will be seen. Thank you. -Ryan
