I purchased an ATV (ATA125D)from budgetatvs.com. in June of this year my order number is :
BQ-2009111211**** I paid at total of $698.00 and paid that amount over time on layaway.I paid it off on June 11th 2010 and was told it would ship
within 4-6 days and it was, I received it from Old Dominion truck lines on the 16th of june. When it arrived the shipping container was falling apart, and
the driver would not wait for me to check for damages, as it turns out the brush guard was broken, the tie rods were bent and the foot rest had damage. I
informed Budget ATV's of this and they noted it, I spoke with Trevor. After putting it together as instructed, The ATV started one time and would not start
again. I called the company and they said it is prob. the battery, so they sent a new battery. However this still did not fix the problem, it still would not
start, again I called them back and they said its prob. the starter or the selinoid, so they sent them and they were put on. Finally the ATV started, but
smokes was just pouring out of the exhaust, it was white smoke with a bluish tint to it. They asked me to send pictures of the ATV and of the smoke,
which I did, they emailed me back saying the ATV had been rolled (WRECKED). I had sent them pictures of the damage that the trucking company had
caused and assured them that it had never been rolled. Finally they agreed that it was a problem with the motor poss. caused by the trucking company
and they were going to file a claim against the trucking company. They sent me shipping labels and a bill of lading for the return, and stated that once
they receive it and inspect it, that a new ATV would be sent. Since that time it has taken me two weeks for them to respond to any of several emails to
them about this, and my phone calls were never returned or I would be disconnected from the call.Finally I have received a nasty email from them saying
that there was nothing wrong with the ATV, that they fixed it, and that I shouldn't have ever purchased an ATV because I am disabled, and can not work
on them, I own a car also and I can't work on it either so does that mean I should not bye a car??? The email also said that it will ship within 48 hrs and I
will be emailed with the cost of shipping both ways!!!! I sent and email back informing them that I was not paying for shipping either way, because they
authorized the return because they asked for pictures of the ATV and thats what they based the return on and I should not have to pay because it was
with their permission. I also let him know that I did not appreciate the smart comment he made towards my disabilities. as well as letting him know that if
I did not hear from them soon , I would assume that they are not going to honor THEIR OWN WARRANTY, I followed their warranty step by step and
now they want to renig and the warranty.
