I can only echo everything said by the other Freeway II reviewers. Buttons, speeds, controls - you name it. I must admit that as yet I have not suffered a broken axle. The worst thing so far was when I stopped to take a shot and (fortunately I had parked so that it was in my vision) at the top of the back swing it took off. Sorry, but this product is an absolute disgrace; Powakaddy should recall the lot, refund our money and throw them all into the Mariana Trench. It is hard to find words... (read more)

My Freeway 11 has been back to the repairers 7 times. Three new handles because the rubber stop/start button disintegrates,three new mother boards because the power kept cutting out and now it needs a new axle.I have finally taken it back to the shop and have been promised a replacement.However i now wish I had pushed to get my money back. this product is definetly rubbish. It has cheap imported parts and has never been road tested.Save your money don't buy this product and be very careful... (read more)

There definitely appears to be a design fault with the Freeway 11. Bought mine in May 09 and it has had three broken axles within the space of a year! Finally had enough of the repairs and requested and received a full refund from American Golf who were great in dealing with my request promptly!
I was offered a replacement trolley but insisted on a refund after quoting "The Sale of goods Act" which clearly states an item has to be fit for purpose! (read more)

Another victim of what I understand to be Powakaddy's ousourcing of the manufacture of this trolley to China.
I've had a new axle, a new gearbox and the obligatory misted screen, plus of course the joy of a rediculous start / stop mechniasm and difficulty i finding the right speed (between 4 and 5 is perfect, pity there isn't a 4.5 setting).
Steer clear of this POS!

Purchased Freeway 2 in June 2009, had 3 over the space of a weekend, first one speed control wouldn't work after 10 holes and had to come off the course during medal round. Second and 3rd both had gearbox problems, eventually got my fourth which until now has worked reasonably well, however now has developed an annoying rumbling noise when in use, have tried WD40 oil and allsorts to try and stop it. As with other reviewers I am finding that in inclement weather the screen is fogging over... (read more)

My Powakaddy FW2 went back to Powakaddy only three weeks after I bought it with fogged up screen and broken power button. They sent me a new one - eventually - but this one is no better. Today I hit the stop button and it stopped, I turned my back on it only for my playing parter to warn me that it was heading off into the trees ! It stopped when it hit a tree stump and the wheels stalled breaking the gearing so I ended up pushing it around the last six holes. The speed settings are a joke 4... (read more)

purchased freeway 2 in July 09, disappointed in speed settings either too fast or too slow. screen mists up in wet weather,also difficult to read if you are tall. Also main axle has snapped on two occasions the second time after 6 rounds. (read more)
