My husband had it assembled in ten minutes and I didn't hear any griping so that's always a good sign.
Cup holder does fit a bottled beer but the holder swings so when you go down an incline or over some tall grass, the beer will flip forward from the swinging momentum and thus spill forward, AKA it is not really functional for an opened bottle. Cans of beer fit fine (coozies don't fit though). The cup holder does fit my iPhone as well as some keys and other small items if I line it with a paper towel first (there are holes cut into the bottom of the holder). It also holds a small bottle of water (with the cap on it) quite well (the slender 16.9 oz bottle of Dasani for instance).
The lack of a shade is pretty awful, as trying to get our little guy to wear a hat can be a battle. So I ordered about 5 umbrellas of varying sizes on Amazon and we ended up with the Versa Brella by Sport Brella in red and then after the red one broke we ordered blue. Both looked fine and tied well with the color of the car. The Versa Brella angles in several different ways thanks to the jointed stem. We attached it to the very end of the handle (that is closest to our bodies/hands when we push) and it doesn't really interfere with the cupholder that much. The clamp does affix nicely around the thick plastic of the Whisper Ride. The Versa Brella can be swiveled very easily so when we make turns in the 'hood, I simply swing the longer edge of the umbrella towards the sun and we get about another 3" of coverage for the little guy. I just wish this umbrella had vents though, as on a windy day (15 MPH gusts) it bucks and bows. Overall it's a necessity to have the umbrella in the Florida sun!!
Trunk provides pretty decent amount of space, we have had two diapers, a travel pack of wipes, a paci, a change of clothes, a sun hat and a small ziplock full of snacks crammed into it and it still closed.
There are holes in the floorboard of this car so you can hose it out if need be.
There are two cup holders in the car for the rider, but they didn't fit our snack cups or sippy cups well. So in them we rigged thick coozies lined with thin plastic cups and we use one for snacks and the other to hold the sippy cup The coozie "holds" or grips onto the plastic cup and prevents spills.
The wheels do not turn but I just push down on the handle, thus lifting up the front wheels and swivel the car in the direction that I need it to go.
I am 5'9" and my husband is 6' and we don't have any issues pushing this. Sure an inch or two on the handle would be great but I understand this product needs to accommodate everyone.
This has been a great addition to our outdoor time. The little guy loves for us to "pull over" so he can push in sprinkler heads, pick up rocks or touch the mailboxes, etc. He will even sit in it while it's parked in our driveway and allow me to get some raking, etc. done while he snacks.
We have gotten this into Disney on several occasions but a few times have been told "really isn't allowed," although we always get in. It's a lot smaller than some of the huge double strollers people are pushing around and frankly it still falls within the size limits on Disney's website. It is not pulled like a wagon (wagons are not allowed into Disney parks) either.
***UPDATE 7/2015*** My son still loves this car. We had to take the steering wheel out to give him more room in the "cabin" for his legs. Still one of the best purchases we've made to date.
These wheels are intended to produce limited noise depending on the ground surface. The underlining surface will affect the noise level - cement, gravel, cinder, dirt, wood, decking, etc.
The previous whisper ride wheel was produced in China and is no longer available for the buggies. The wheel design has been revised and modernized and is now produced in the USA. It provides a sporty new look along with having a soft rubber compound over the rim. Again the new wheel will produce limited noise depending on the underlining surface. The ground surface such as cement, gravel, wood, tile, grass, dirt, etc. as well as the weight of child will have a large impact affecting the noise level.
You cannot have a conversation with someone walking with you or hear your child. It rattles and vibrates. The whole neighborhood would know we are coming. I am sending both back and am going to try to find an older version used. The older version is nice and quiet.
