    john from Bluffton SC USA submitted this review on November 19th 2015 at 06:54 PM. john is an end user who has one to six months of experience with the product.
    Strengths:Well made, comfortable, fast enough
    Weaknesses:These problems are probably common to all six wheel chairs. Problem one: The castor wheels scoop up loose rugs and pack them between wheels, causing the power to stop. The only way to get the machine off is to get off and manually push it. It is very difficult to use it where there are rugs not fastened down. Problem two: To ride it outdoors to the fitness center, I must get over several curbs. If the curbs are approached too slowly, the drive wheels get off the surface, and th chair is hung up. Approaching curbs more quickly makes the chair jump over and is rough on passenger and machine. The included instructions warn about this, but after one receives the chair. I thing prospective customers should be advised of these limitations. I had ordered a four wheel chair, but received the six wheel, and kept it, not knowing the limitations.
    Comments:Same as above weaknesses

    Sarah from Sewell, NJ, USA submitted this review on July 24th 2012 at 09:08 AM. Sarah is an end user who has six months to a year of experience with the product.
    Strengths:Pretty color.
    Weaknesses:Very poor quality.
    Comments:After much comparison shopping, I decided on the Golden Compass Sport since it seemed to best suit my needs. Only a few months of ownership left me very displeased. Now, at almost a year, I believe it to be a piece of junk! It’s one problem after another. It makes a grinding sound when moving. I got it with a year’s service policy, so I called the service number and had it fixed. Two days later it started again. (It’s now been “fixed” 3 times, but still does it.) Next, the charger stopped charging. It was replaced and a month later, the new one stopped charging.

    When you call the number in Golden’s manual, they say you have to call the dealer, who says he’ll call the manufacturer, but it takes them a day to respond, several more days for a repairman to pick it up and several more days for it to be returned, allegedly fixed. Do they actually think I’m going to pay for all these “repairs” after the service policy expires?

    Don’t buy this one if you need it to get around.

    Chris from NYC submitted this review on November 26th 2010 at 10:04 AM. Chris is an end user who has one to six months of experience with the product.
    Strengths:None, flimsy and unsafe. I HAVE BEEN USING POWER WHEELCHAIRS FOR 13 YEARS AND NEVER ENCOUNTERED A MORE DANGEROUS CHAIR.
    Weaknesses:It tips over easily (twice for me outdoors). Battery needed to be replaced.
    Comments:Stay away from this company.
