Question

I can't get the car to start. I assembled it which seemed very simple. Made the three connections and charged it for the 15 hours.

I followed the directions to the "T" which again seemed pretty simple. But I can't get the car to start. My whole idea of opening it before Christmas was so my daughter could drive it on Christmas. Winston Customer Service is terrible you go through a call center and they call you back with no time frame.

Make sure the charger is out, the power switch is turned to ON and then press the pedal. Look at all connections and make sure they are all snapped in together. The hood and under the seat is all the connections needed. If all fails, you have a bad battery. No tellin how long these cars have been on the back shelves.

The rear motors are reversed. The directions were incorrect. Green wire to green wire, orange to orange. If you don't switch the motors, the car will go reverse in forward, and vice versa. We had the same problem, thought maybe it was a faulty charger, bought another charger without any luck, then read through all of the product reviews here, where I found others seemed to have the same problem. Works great now, after 2 days of frustration.

I thought I had the same problem. I charged the car and when I turned it on and pressed the pedal nothing. But then I realized it had to be unplugged from the charger to work.

Did you connect the battery cables under the hood to the wires running from the on/off switch? The directions WERE VERY VAGUE and we missed connecting those 2 wires under the hood the 1st time.

Question

I am wondering if anyone knows anything about the cars and how they hold up or work compared to powerwheels?

I did buy this Thanksgiving night for my grandson. I researched the company Winston Manufacturing and the car...but could not find any information on either. I don't know of any other vehicles they manufactured except the others that walmart sold...so does anyone else :) I assumed that Walmart wouldn't be dealing with them if they weren't reputable?! I know I got my granddaughter the Barbie Jeep Powerwheel...about 4 years ago...and it did hold up...she played on it...they would even push each other around in it, when it got to where a battery wouldn't recharge. I can't wait to see his face when he gets this one :) Just want to be sure that its gonna last. Any information would be greatly appreciated :)

This car seems to be a LOT like the "MY FIRST CAR" from JC Penneys online my daughter got last Christmas. It's just BIGGER (3 x's bigger!) and faster. The charging plugs in below the driver seat like a cellphone charges up...just like our little "My First Car" does. So...if they are ANYTHING ALIKE, we all made a GREAT PURCHASE on this convertible! The tires are made JUST ALIKE my daughter's "My First Car" also! She's ridden that little car to death over a year and the charge holds great, battery has been great. Hope to see more of the same with this higher powered convertible..hoping it MAY BE along the same family tree or something.

I got this Thanksgiving night too. It ran for one day and would not charge. The wiring is pretty small gauge. I think the wiring going from the charge connector to the battery was bad. Under the Warranty from the factory they say you are responsible for shipping costs to them to get it fixed. I took it back to Walmart and got a refund.

I've tried to research the manufacturing company and car by model number and have hit the wall. The company as "Winston International" does have a boilerplate webpage at www.winstonintl.com but it is useless. Since the company is headquartered in Bentonville, AR, I imagine Walmart is, at least, a partial owner. Our local Walmart had 3 of them and they went fast, leaving the $300 - $400 cars on the shelf. I wish they'd order more of this type of item.

My daughter is 4 yr and 40-41 inches. Her knees touch the wheel so kind of uncomfortable for her. Also, it is a squeeze to put both legs on one side of gear stick. She sits in the middle.

I think it probably will. The car we had before this had the SAME type of wheels with the rubber running down the center of the tire. Despite our old car being 1/3 the size and running max of 2mph, it would run on our thick pile carpet, just not very strong when the battery started losing strength after riding a while.

no, but I installed all that from buying parts from radio shack and frys electronics. I spent about $60 extra and about 10 hours putting it all together. Wiring, drilling some holes, adding switches, mp3 player, mounted speaker. The lights I used were bright white LEDs and bright pink LEDs connected to switches and separate battery holders.

I managed to purchase two today, however we had to drive to another Wal-Mart 30 miles away. Now I almost wish we hadn't as I opened the owners manual to see the speed on this this since I already have a 6volt in the garage that only runs on pavement and was disappointed to find that this car only goes 1.86-3.73 MPH.

Powered OFF. Make sure you can lift one side up and spin each tire freely. If you cannot its possible you tighten the front tires to tight or wrong. If front wheels spin good, then it's possible in the steering itself. The rods under the car may be bent or hitting plastic
