Strengths: It is real transportation if you have mobilty difficulty. Attractive, you will draw a lot of attention. I think it ranks as a Cadillac or Rolls Royce of electric mobility scooters. More than enough power, speed and distance per charge to get around town. I live in the San Bernardino Mountains of southern California. This scooter performs exceeding well on inclines. Easily negotiates up to 6% or steeper grades in my neighborhood with no problems. This vehicle will take you out into the community! All in all if you are looking for independence and freedom of movement, give this unit your serious consderation.
Weaknesses: It is really unfair to claim weaknesses on this product. There are some areas that improvement could be wished for. Surely the weight of the vehicle and rider would make better suspension a comfort. If the rider doesn't have fairly good upper body strength they should probably not consider acquiring one. It is not easy to control movement at the slowest speed range. The upper speed range, while definitely a desireable asset, requires extra effort to control the vehicle. Front lighting is not strong, but it can be remedied with a couple battery powered bicycle lamps.
