I thought I'd never see this day, after all their hemming and hawing, BS, dozens of promises not kept. I just was delivered S/N 33. Original one was 34. It came with 1.0 mile on it.

I ended up sending Title for bad one to the manufacturer over two weeks ago, and dealer was to send bad unit (which they picked up some time ago) back to them.

Now the fun begins, with who knows how many problems I'll have with this one, or hopefully everything will be fine.

Well very good. But I don't know whether to suggest you hammer it for all it's worth or take if extremely easy to see if you can get passed the 34 mile mark. Probably best to pretend you never had the first one and just proceed per the owners manual. But good luck which ever way you plan to test it or break it in. You may need all the luck you can get.(y)

It was after four (4) miles I put on it when it broke.

Nope! Brand new one, VIN # 33. Original one was # 34. But date of mfg. was 4/19.

What's date of manufacture on vin #33

I ran that vin number through my VIN decoder, it's telling me it's 15 digits short.

Yes, of course VIN has a bunch of digits. There are about 5 zeros before the 33. Manufacture date: April, 2019.

BTW: I misread the total mileage on it. The only time you can display total miles is when you 1st "turn it on". After that, it displays trip only. I subtracted miles on my trip I took yesterday from total miles displayed today, and it had about 33 miles when I got it. They said they were going to test it out before they brought it.

Ok, you confused me when you told critter it was a brand new one after he said they gave you an older one(implying 33 came off the line BEFORE 34).

Hopefully this one lasts

Thanks!

But now I'm confused about your confusion. Both 33 and 34 were sold or replaced as being brand new as they've never been Titled to a consumer previously. the 1st one (34) had 16 miles on it when I got it, and the 33 replacement had around 33 miles. Both made in April, 2019.

BTW: I got a bit scared going to Walmart today with a FULL charge, and after only 4.5 miles, the battery charge gauge dropped two bars. After shopping for about 1/2 hour, the gauge read full upon leaving, and remained full most of the way home.

Manual says it takes 20-30 charge cycles to achieve full battery performance. I guess I'll keep cycling and see what happens.

Are you going to have to run the battery down to as close to nothing before recharging so you don’t get the battery memory problem or do those batteries not have that problem to begin with?

Is that a problem with lead-acid?

BTW: When ever I need new batteries, I'm gonna replace with lithium. I recently did same with a golf cart, and lost hundreds of pounds of weight (one 26 pound battery vs. 6 - 64 pound batteries), increased battery life from 3-4 years to 7-10 years, and the battery cost for lithium with new charger was considerably less than obsolete lead-acid.

I don’t think so but to be honest I’m not sure. Me and electrical stuff don’t see eye to eye.
Manual says to recharge after every use, so I suspect not.

But I wonder how good the batteries remain after sitting for 19 months.
