I have had the pathfinder for over a year now. I honestly don't think I'll need another scooter ever. Nothing has gone wrong with the pathfinder and it's been a true joy to use. It handles every situation I throw at it from countryside walks (country lanes, tarmac based) to steep hills and busy city centres. Still wish the battery charged faster but it has a decent range when it's full. Well weighted, doesn't feel like a freight train but also doesn't feel overly delicate either. the power delivery is full of torque and you have no trouble going up the steepest of hills. The brakes work exquisitely and have only been serviced once... but not replaced. All round great investment, so well priced too. Shelly.
