Here's what one reviewer has to say about his new Heartway USA - Vita -S12 Scooter:
"Let me start by saying - I LOVE this thing! I now have the mobility I have lacked for so long. Scooter came well packed, i.e. no damage or issues with shipping. This is an exceptionally high quality machine. I was very impressed. I live in a rural area and, while it is no ATV, it travels surprising well on rough terrain. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a very stylish mobility scooter." - Posted by David Cross on 15th Nov 2016
