Lightning McQueen Power Wheels Reviews

Most appreciated is how much the child loves playing with it. A close second is how easy it is to set up, with most of the car coming pre-assembled and that the kids only take a few minutes to get the hang of driving this battery operated car.

User Review: My son is 4 years old and I was afraid it would be too small, but it fits him just right and I'm certain to get 2 good years out of it! He was so excited when he came home. My recommendation is to take some time off work or take some time before your child comes home because if it is a surprise for he or she then just know that some assembly is required, sticker placement, screwing on the front bumber and spoiler, etc. Plus the car's battery has to charge for at least 18 hours before it's first use. At least you'll know ahead of time now so that when yours comes you can follow my instructions and enjoy it 10 times more with your child.

Here is a summary of what users say about this kids ride on toy:

  • The assembly instructions where clear and easy to follow
  • The steering has a fair amount of play in it, but overall turns fairly easily
  • The tires are a great quality and does NOT leave skid marks on carpet
  • Some complaints that this car only has seating for one child, so they cannot share their driving experience with a sibling or friend
  • Another complaint is that because it only has a 6 volt battery, it can feel slow for an over 5 year old.
    I have heard of people turbo-charging their Lightning McQueen Power Wheels with 12-volt and 24-volt for a faster speed, but this will possibly void the warranty, so proceed with caution.
  • On the other hand, parents with children in the younger age bracket, though find this a plus (makes supervising the child easier).
  • Any child who loves Lightning McQueen is going to love riding around in their very own car.

This toy is a long time purchase, that can be used for a few years.

Before Buying Check These Points

  1. The Lightning McQueen Power Wheels ride-on toy is made for the average 3 - 7 year old, so if you are planning to buy it for a younger child to use now, they should be the height of an average three year old, or they will not be able to reach the paddles.
    An alternative choice could be the "lil" version (Power Wheels Lil Lightning McQueen) of the same car
  2. Also on the other side, the car can handle a maximum weight of 65 lbs
  3. Prior to using this toy, you will need to charge the battery for 18 hours
  4. Though the Product Description says the "sound box" requires 3 AA batteries, this seems to be a mistake, and you will need one AA battery
