Would a Zhenhua 150cc 3 wheel scooter be a good choice for me?

(Grand Haven, MI)

I have been considering a Zhenhua 150cc 3 wheel scooter. It is a 2009 model. Only has 270 actual miles on it. I am a 73 year old woman and NOT a mechanic.

Would this be a good vehicle for me? Wanting something to run around town and that is easy on gas. Man is asking $1200 for it.

Not No, But Hell No.

I bought one new last year and it has been nothing but trouble. So far I have had to change out the carburetor, left turn signal stopped working, gas gauge stopped working, rides rough, several bolts have fallen off, have had to have it adjusted by a mechanic and worse of all, I have yet been able to buy any type of service or repair manual, to better understand it, even from the dealer.

If I have had all of these problems with a new one, I can not even guess what a used trike would be like. Also, there were other problems, however I believe there's enough here for you to get my drift.

Hello, I have a 3 wheel 150cc scooter, 2009 model. to be honest, it has been in the shop more than it has on the road. It even caught on fire due to a wiring problem.

I paid $2,600.00 for it brand new in 2009. I now have it back on the road, but for how long, I don't know. If possible, ask for any repair records they might have.

Battery Tender Junior in package

A battery tender like the Battery Tender Jr. can make all the difference in whether your scooter will start right up each spring, after being stored for months.

Just about every scooter owner needs to have a battery tender, sometimes called a trickle charger. Unless you are lucky enough to live in a climate where you can ride all year long, chances are your scooter will be put on ice, figuratively-speaking, for at least a couple months every winter.

One of the key steps in winterizing a scooter is to protect your battery from draining during its "rest" period. This can – and will – happen if you leave your battery sitting untended in your cold scooter over the winter, even if it's in a garage or shed.

Read our review or go right to Amazon.com to buy this highly recommended Battery Tender Jr NOW...
