    I am still using my P200 that is now 17 years old. It still runs fairly well and hasn't had any major repairs in all these years. It is my "around the house chair" now because it is more comfortable and can get under all of my tables and desks. My "out and about" is a Quickie P-222SE that feels just as solid and reliable. It is a huge improvement over the POS Invacare RangerX that it replaced. That chair never worked well from the day I got it. The legrest bent the first week. Because it was such a POS, I rarely used it and was thankful that the P200 just kept on running.

    We've had a Quantum Q6 for a year and a half. Other than a severed main cable which was the fault of the idiots who wired the seating system, it has had no outright failures.
    Based on my junkyard reliability failure I'd say there aren't that many failures of hard components. I've been scouring ebay for several months looking for different style leg rests. There is an abundance of motors and electronics perma-listed. In the case of cars, that usually means no one needs the parts. That, or the battle-bot nerds don't like them.

    I understand you're unhappy, but it would help the thread starter to add some specifics.

    Angry pride jazzy POS

    I have been stuck with the jazzy 1420 for the past 4 years. It has been down with tilt motors fried, propulsion motors for the 3rd time in less than a year. It is constantly breaking down with some sort of problem. Where should I go from here?

    Best Reliability? P200/P222SE! Simple, elegant, and beefy design.

    If you go to their website
    http://www.motionconcepts.com/power_positioning.html
    and click on the seating system you want, it shows you the compatible chairs on the right. Most of the conventional systems seem to be compatible with the P222 frame style.

    quickie is the only power chair company that would work w/my customized requests. i have flip up armrests on my p200/p222 chairs, the exact same as on their manual chairs, only i don't lift and swivel, they flip up. no junk hanging off them, no release levers. i posted pics once before of this.

    i have a jay back. talk to quickie engineering, NOT sales rep.

    a pic. in this pic, both armrests are down. you can see the jayback and jay cushion. my joystick is on arm closest to bed. all i do is flip it up to transfer.

    note: you won't see this option on quickie site as they customized it for me. but you must talk to engineering, NOT sales.
