Complaint Review: Full Throttle
Full Throttle (Mark Teachout) Scam Artists tempe Arizona
*Consumer Comment: Ex welcraft Scarab boat builder
To say the least I wish I would have never met Mark Teachout or any other persons associated with Full Throttle Power Sports. I had recently taken my boat in for a new starter, new oil, spark plugs and the impeller. I have always taken very good care of my boat, which ran excellent before i dropped it off at Full throttle in Tempe. Full Throttle had my boat for 4 days, I picked it up, payed a little over 1 thousand dollars and 2 days later I was at the lake. My boat started right up, but within 4 minutes my boat motor was seized, water was leaking from the impeller housing, and my boat temp was pegged out at 240 degrees. My family and I stranded having to get towed in, I was defeated.
The next morning I dropped the boat off at Full Throttle Power sports, (Monday). By Friday still had heard nothing, I called to hear Cj (lead Mechanic) say the starter was bad and was checking into a few other things. My response- what about the motor? "Motor is fine" Cj told me. I then told Cj to please give me a call for an update when they are done "checking into a few other things." Nothing for entire week so finally I went down to the shop on Weber Dr. Building empty....... Did some research and found they had moved down around the corner.
Of course Mark nor Cj were at the new building but I was told by the shop manager that basically the boat was fine when it left their shop, and they were not responsible for it now. So as Im looking around the shop, there is a painting business within the same establishment and there is someone actively painting a car right next to my boat. Long story short, my boat is covered in overspray, I have a 454 motor that is seized, and paid Full Throttle over one-thousand dollars to do it all. I left there with my boat in pieces, I still have not gotten a phone call from them. Please people do your research. This all took place in the last 2 weeks of May 2013
