I Love My Pride Mobility Go-Go Elite

In the spring of 2012 I needed a new scooter  My second scooter (if you count the one I used from my wife, Kimberly’s, late grandmother) had finally died after seven years of service.

I went down to our local medical supply store with credit card in hand and shopped for a new scooter.  I tried out a few before I settled on the Pride Mobility Go-Go Elite.  I liked that it was easy for me to get on and off of the scooter and how well it handled, turned in tight spots and the smooth ride I felt both inside the store and outside in the parking lot.

The scooter easily breaks down to four main pieces: The running board and steering controls are one piece (and the steering column folds down onto the running board), the back two wheels where the motor is located, the seat detaches, and the battery.

Assembled the entire unit weights about 85 pounds.  No individual piece weights more than I believe 20 pounds.

My scooter has fit nicely into trunks of cars we have rented and has ridden smoothly in the back of our SUV.

The scooter meets the ADA requirements for public transit and I have taken it on the public transit and paratransit systems in Joplin Missouri with no problems.  Note: I do not recommend sitting on the scooter while traveling on public transportation as it does not come with its own seat belt.

I have used it at conferences, in hotels, hospitals, public schools, malls, ballparks – everywhere I needed to go that walking with my rollator would have been too hard for me.

The top speed for this model is 3 miles per hour so there is no need to worry about getting a speeding ticket.

I am often asked how long it runs between charges.  That is hard to answerer.  Although it has an excellent battery life when fully charged, I have found I needed to charge more frequently if I use the scooter to climb a lot of hills and ramps during the day.  Bottom line, you can go further on a charge on flatter surfaces – and of course if you keep the scooter in good working condition and follow the recommended directions for charging the battery.

I have had this scooter for over 9 years.  I have never had any mechanical issues except for needing to replace the battery three times which is not bad for a 9-year-old scooter.

I highly recommend purchasing this scooter and when I need a new scooter, I plan to purchase another pride mobility product.
