I no longer could go shopping because of a disability that has targeted my knee and legs. Hubby had to do all the shopping. With this Pride, I am mobile again and can navigate the mall, grocery stores, football stadiums, theaters. I am able to enjoy my kid's dance competitions. I feel like I am back among the living. The extended battery lasts forever. I honestly have no idea how long it lasts. After a day at the mall, I still had a full charge. Hubby loads it easily into the back of the SUV. It comes apart into 3 main sections. The front, the back wheels, and the seat. Comes apart and goes together in seconds. I can't wait until the weather is nicer so I can hit the zoo and botanical gardens, which I have not been to in years. Not only am I mobile again, but this has also given me a new outlook on life. I HIGHLY RECCOMEND IT!!!!
