It breaks down to five pieces and they are heavy. When I got the largest piece out the car I hurt my hip and back. Had to go to E.R. I have not been able to use it because I cannot get it from the car. I am going to buy a lift to get it in and out the car. I have a Dodge Dart and those five pieces are stuffed in my back sit. They make it seem as if those five pieces are not heavy but they are. I don’t know how the scooter drives because I have not used it yet.
