I want some opinions. Is there many flaws to the car or is it mostly a perfect model? :D :kitt:

I never bought one because the wheels aren't screen accurate. They look like smaller rims than what was used in the show. The left side of the dash from Kitt's voice modulator and on, the shape isn't correct.

This was a subject that was raised when the model was released. KITT had 15" rims and the Hot Wheels 1:18s are perfectly scaled.

The biggest problem with the wheels are the tyres - far too square in profile, and with no markings.

There's lots of information and opinion on this forum about the pros and cons, comparisons with the ERTL model and detailed photographs.

It's quite simply the best 1:18 scale model of KITT you can buy - it's better than ERTL's model in every respect.

The only issue I've had and seen others with have been the seats not staying down.

If you can buy one in a real shop, check that the seats will sit down and stay down before you buy it and not pop up.

The paintwork on mine is flawless,

It really is the best model KITT out there.

It costs about 100 to 150 dollars most likely. :kitt:
