It's probably my fault for not reading the box carefully, but this is not a vehicle, it's a "Droid". There is no where for a character to ride. It's supposed to roll along on the two over-sized wheels, one of them rolls fine, the other catches and snags on it's own tracks. Don't presume that you can give it a shove from one side of a room and have it glide along to the other, you have to continually push it. It has 32, yes 32, individual spring loaded missile launchers, so if you're buying this for a child as I did, keep that in mind. As far as durability, I don't imagine this surviving it's first night in the toybox..it's very flimsy.
