Sterling Sapphire 2 Mobility Scooter - good and comfy but broke down after 18 months wouldn't purchase another.

We recommend that all mobility scooters have a full service every 12 months to avoid any breakdowns.
Excellent purchase. But not portable. Cannot be charged off board. Scooter bag a good buy. Very good to ride though.

I'm really pleased with my Sterling Sapphire 2 mobility scooter. Previously I was a manual wheelchair user but started having problems with my elbows so needed some form of powered mobility transport.
What attracted me to the Sapphire 2 is the ability to put my feet either side of of the steering column. I have long legs with arthritic knees so the being able to stretch my legs out is a godsend.
The scooter is well made and a steal at such a low price. I just wish it went a little faster on the straights, but being a class 2 scooter it is limited to 4mph. Having never ridden a mobility scooter before I'm amazed how much grunt they have.
The only negative is that the scooter is slighter too large to get on buses and I would recommend the Little Gem 2 if you need to use the buses regularly.
