Been having this car since 2006. It still performs when needed and has not broke down on me. Ride is comfortable. Due to repairs in the past It make a little clicking sound when I gain some speed but all it needs is the snaps to bolt the part covers around the motor. I'm happy with it. However at the age of 9 it might be time to consider a newer vehicle. May not be another Max. Don't like the newer models much.
