I have tested this car and it does work both reverse and forward functions are pretty slow, not sure if that's how it was from factory. Forward speed is sluggish, it slows down randomly then speeds back up.
The right front tire support has a crack, so sometimes when you turn the tires to the right it gets stuck and you have to force it back to the left. The rear view mirror is broken off (included). The side mirror has a broken support clip (included).The windshield is bent from sitting in the box for so long (probably will straighten out). Overall a pretty decent condition car that will need a little TLC.
