2004 Dune Buggy DUNE BUGGY

by JeremyJenkins on 03/26/2013
Awesome wheels
Every have a car like this? Well i thought the same after i was done with it. You would be astounding at what you can pull with something like this. You can just hit those sand dunes and have a wonderful time. Yup, that's right, you defiantly want one now and who wouldn't? Maybe a person who doesn't like having an awesome vehicle and a great time, could that be you?

2006 Dune Buggy DUNE BUGGY

by Surrias on 12/24/2012
hilarious
the dune buggy is the most prized item in the collection. It may not be very comfortable or pretty on the inside, but it is the funnest thing to drive ever and it never breaks down. it will go as fast as need be and then some. I love the dune buggy and recommend it to anyone who doesn't care too much about a comfy seat

2006 Dune Buggy DUNE BUGGY

by dunebuggy on 12/17/2012
A fun thing to ride
I bought this product because my 2 kids (aged 6 and 7.5) want a "little car". They always wanted a "power wheels" and still do! But I wouldn't buy one then and I'm certainly not going to buy one now.

This product seemed like a good solution - its not as fast as the Razor go-kart - 8mph vs 12 mph. And the idea that it is "off-road entertainment" is very compelling as we have some hard packed dirt paths nearby. I disliked the razor go-kart because it requires the kids to either drive in the street OR in a parking lot which didn't seem super safe, and also seemed like it would get boring sooner. I like the idea that we could take this to many parks and just run around.

I was very curious to see what the owners manual said, and I'm going to share that with you. We all know that owners manuals can be a bit restrictive, but, it does say what it says for a reason.

Keep in mind, I think this is a great product, but I think you deserve the full disclosure! Pros and Cons at the bottom.

1) The first page out of the box says "this product is not a toy... suitable for use only by persons ages 13 and older". WOW!! And all over the Amazon page it says 8 years old. Now I'm sure this is something the lawyers made them add, I bet some 9 year old got hurt. But: use your judgement! (and read #4)
2) The initial charge time is 18 hours. In other words, Christmas eve. Not a biggie, but you aren't supposed to use it "right out of the box" as another review has said.
3) Recharge time: 12 hours. Yes, you are going to get up to 45 minutes of fun - PER DAY. If you are on the fence about electric vs. gas, this might push you to the gas powered model. Extra battery is $55. I'm sorely tempted to buy one before xmas and have both charged because ... I have 2 kids! (I can't afford 2 dune buggies)

1959 Dune Buggy DUNE BUGGY

by Wayne on 11/10/2012
Fun Ride
Had one for 3 yrs. Had a blast driving something that originated from the past. Alas, too many toys, and had to sell it. Local guy bought it and I am sure he will take it to the next level.

1977 Dune Buggy DUNE BUGGY

by Cevyn_55 on 10/20/2012
Everyone should have a dune buggy once in their life
What kid, especially a boy has never wanted to have his own dune buggy, whether you bought one already made of make one from that old VW bug sitting in your back yard like a lot of us did. Nothing like barreling around the back farmlands or sand dunes than in your dune buggy, just all over fun to the max....
