**2021 Costco Jeep Power Wheels, Hurricane Extreme Teal**
I always wanted one of these as a kid! I can remember it was only around 1-2 kids that had a power wheels & if you didn’t have one, you always tried to get an opportunity to ride it. Now Costco is selling this Fisher Price Power Wheels Jeep Hurricane Extreme. Scroll down for photos. They’ve made a few upgrades since the first few model’s of the 1980’s. They come with a very realistic dash & a sound system for your kid to play baby shark on repeat! This is just in time for the holidays. It’s a little pricey at $349.99 so if you’re looking for the “big gift” for the kiddo, this may be the perfect gift. I believe a while back Costco had the Jeep Rubicon & the Jeep Wrangler. Now they have the Jeep Hurricane Extreme. Anyways, here are a few details about this Costco Power Wheels……..
- 12V Rechargeable Battery
- Glove Box & Ignition
- 5 MPH Forward. 2.5MPH Reverse
- Ages: 3 – 7 years (Up to 130 pounds)
- Realistic dashboard with working radio
- 1 year warranty
Costco Power Wheels, Jeep Hurricane Extreme
What’s nice is that this is made by Fisher Price. They have 350+ service centers around the USA so if you have an issue, it’s backed by a large company. You can fit a passenger in the car as well, as long as both kids aren’t too big. This is an upgrade from the Paw Patrol car that Costco also carries. If you plan on buying it, make sure to grab a flatbed cart, because the box is BIG! If you have trouble finding this power wheels at your local Costco or you want to check out some of the HIGHLY RATED alternatives (click the first one! The John Deere one is AWESOME!), check out these on Amazon……

I have tried to put this together. Not difficult except when I got to the steering rod. The crooked end of the rod goes through the steering hole and then into a hole that exits on the bottom of jeep. It is supposed to be attached to the steering mechanism with a screw. Problem I have yet to overcome is that when the crooked end of the rod comes out bottom, it does not align with the rod that I am to attach it too. Frustrating to say the least!!
Any hints on what I might be doing wrong or could I have a faulty jeep?
Is it possible you have the rod upside down? I had a similar issue when putting together my Best Choice Jeep. As soon as I figured out the correct way it fit properly. Sorry you are having a bit of frustration. Let me know if that ends up working
We are having the same problem. How did you get it to work?
He never got back to me or emailed me on the solution. Please come back and let us know if you end up solving the issue. It’s got to be something that is just being overlooked. As stated above, I own the Best Choice Products Jeep that is still going strong
What washers did you try – size, material etc? Having exactly the same issue with the one we purchased, where the front wheels vibrate and wobble A LOT, which definitely stop it from going 5mph! I’d say 2.5-3mph max at moment.
I tried sending Charles a message. Hopefully he is able to respond with the materials and parts used. Seems like such a cheap part to skimp out on. Oh well
Eventually it lined up and fit perfectly. Took some finagling but it fit in.
My issue is not enough power to go up a slight grassy hill. How can I get more power?
OK. Glad to know! As far as more power….that is a loaded question. As stated above, I purchased my kid the “Best Choice Products Kids 12V Ride On Truck“. It’s similar to the power wheels jeep but cheaper and easier to replace the batteries. I took out the 7 amp battery and added 2 x 9 amp batteries. This thing runs FOREVER now! It doesn’t necessarily have more power (i.e. torque), but it lasts longer. There are many YouTube videos on how to upgrade to a 24 volt system vs the 12 volt system which may work for the hills. It will allow it to go faster too. Check out YouTube videos on that. It’s also requires some DIY’ing and modifications. As far as the batteries go, I recommend putting in a trickle charge like I did. I spliced the battery cables and added a Battery Tender Connection (also from Costco, click link to see post) & this will help keep the batteries in GREAT shape. Also added a volt meter gauge to know when to charge the batteries. Hope that helps a little & if you have any more questions, please let me know
We bought this and also have the same issue of a nonfunctioning radio. New batteries too. I’m okay without doors since it does have a slot/step for the kiddos. Probably the most frustrating thing is that the front wheels are very wobbly while driving, to where the car shakes quite a bit while driving. I tried washers/spacers between the wheels and nut cap so they aren’t so loose but it has only helped a little. I’m now wondering if I got a dud or if this is a common issue.
Interesting. We’ve been looking to purchase this one or one from Amazon. In all the reviews I read there seems to be no clear winner. They all seem to have their issues. Sounds like you’ve done some troubleshooting & got it to work relatively well. That’s good to hear. This might be a time where I choose Amazon over Costco. If you take a look at “Best Choice Products Kids 12V Ride On Truck, Battery Powered Toy Car w/ Spring Suspension, Remote Control, 3 Speeds, LED Lights, Bluetooth”, you can find reviews where they talk about all the issues and modify it significantly (adding batteries & charging adapters). It’s also a little less expensive than the “power wheels” brand. I don’t believe you got a dud. Seems like that is just the quality of the product. Did you check the wires for the radio? Anything obvious?
Hi Charles, there’s a comment above asking which washers/ materials you used? If you have an exact model number or a Lowe’s / Home Depot product number, that would be great. Thanks for your help
Charles, this front wheel wobble is very common. My front wheels are almost “Pigeon toed” for lack of a better description. It does cause a lot of vibration and my 4 year old daughter wasn’t sure she wanted to continue her first ride( on sidewalk) after a few seconds. We went to the desert area around our community and she had much more fun. I have not tried to correct the issue yet, was hoping someone here had found the best solution.
Ya, it sounds like Charles got the spacers/washers to make it work slightly better. It would be nice if he could get back to us and send us Home Depot/Lowe’s part numbers. I scanned through Amazon reviews for any answers without luck. Bumping this comment to see if anyone has a solution
Hi, thanks for your reply
So this specific model has no doors so they won’t open lol.
I don’t think this model has a horn, does it? Do you own it?
I will check the batteries for the radio .
Hi Mika. No we don’t own this Power Wheels. Our kiddo isn’t quite old enough yet. I was looking at it though because he’ll be turning 3 & I know a power wheels purchase is right around the corner for us. That’s why it’s great to actual get some authentic reviews. Keep me updated & let me know if that batteries were the source of any issues. Thanks again Mika
We bought it.
The box says working radio but the radio doesn’t work.
It has no horn.
The doors don’t open.
The trunk is in the front.
The wheels outer rims fell out the 2nd day we used the car.
Overall I hate this car. Power wheels didn’t offer any support at all and sent me on my way without solving the issues.
But my question is why the box says the radio works when it’s clearly not a functioning radio??????
Can’t find an answer anywhere. Did I buy a faulty one? Can I return it to Costco??
I’m sorry Mika. That is really frustrating. It says it comes with a 1 year warranty from Power Wheels which is Fisher Price. I’m surprised they haven’t been any help because I’m sure they don’t want you returning this to Costco. Is there any change a cable came loose behind the radio? Did you put the batteries in correctly. I believe it is 2 screws below the radio to get them in. If the batteries aren’t in correctly, that may also be connected to the horn. As far as the door, maybe it just needs to be forced open to loosen up. Let me know if you end up solving any of the problems. Hope that helps
