Top Recommended Vehicles
So we asked the experts what vehicles they recommended and here is the list in a somewhat top to bottom order:
The "grey" F150 seemed to be a popular PowerWheels in the forums. Comments included:

" I think the Grey F150 is a decent buy at $127. It's Super 6 so it has upgrade potential." from jfoust


"Ford F-150 wins my pic for most durable. Cause I rarely see one for repair. It's only weak point is the shifter design breaks. I sell very few tires so they must be holding out better then the others. And it has the best all terrain tire tread." from AlanP
The red mustang was popular for its realistic looks and large interior size. Comments included:

"1. Mustang (both my kids love Mustangs and it 'looks' like a real car." from turbokev


"I would definitely have to say the Mustang, it is by far my sons favorite, fast, roomy, and one of the most realistic looking Power Wheels." from FjCruiser
The Escalade. Some wanted pink and others black, but everyone liked the real opening doors and radio! Comments included:

"Easy to mod for lights and sound system as well as gear upgrades. Parts are also readily available. " from Mama


"4. Escalade (cause it's huge and has opening doors, radio etc)" from turbokev
