I told Desi, who I believe to be the owner of Affordable Excitement I want a full refund.
He has ignored me entirely.

PLEASE do not remove this post. Desi has taken my last dollar - let him, lawyer etc threaten to sue - I'm in a Women's Shelter with no income.
There WAS zero info online about this company when I first thought to purchase from them. Now this review is here and could prevent others heartbreak AND it needs to stay.

1st mistake paying for scooter sight unseen. Told by Desi bike was at the warehouse. Shown specs and images from the Tao Tao website of the 2014 Lancer 150cc 2nd mistake – not DEMANDING a refund. Desi confessed that he is not a licensed dealer for 150cc Tao Tao scooters. Logic dictates since he is not a licensed dealer, Desi nor his mechanic likely has had proper training/education to assemble, trouble shoot, and/or repair these vehicles. Left scooter there to make pick-up arrangements. Title said “New”. 3rd mistake – returning scooter for repair. 1st day home took it to get gased up 8 miles away. 2nd day would not start, charged batter to full (1-1/2 hours) long enough to lose my PT job at Arbor Place Mall. After charging scooter ran fine. 3rd day scooter started up just fine, then cut off quarter of a mile from home/shelter. Pushed it out of the road. Had roughly 35 miles on it. Scooter sat until I was able to get someone with a truck to return the scooter to Desi in Norcross. Desi told me his mechanic found a “pinched gas line”. Desi said, his mechanic replaced the gas line, put a new Japanese carburetor in, and added 5 miles on the scooter making sure it ran great. Miles on scooter = 41 at pick up Saturday, May 9, 2015. 4th mistake – trusting repair. Got the scooter home Saturday, May 9, 2015. Rode it two blocks and let it sit overnight. The next day it started strong. Sunday May 10th was mother’s day. Put approximately 60 miles on it trying to find interview location (and potential next job) sent by Elwood Staffing to Peco Fasteners off Six Flags. On Six Flags Drive scooter cut off going uphill in front of Wendy’s. Fuel gauge read half a tank. I pushed it across the street to the gas station. Filled the tank to full. Tried it, scooter started and I rode it home – TO THE HOMELESS SHELTER I’M LIVING IN. Next day – interview day – Monday, May 11, 2015 Scooter started. I let it warm up. Quarter of a mile from shelter – scooter cuts off. Contacted Desi – via text message cussed him, his scooter, staff, and shop. He does not make house calls. Desi wrote on receipt 12months engine and transmission warranty. Told me via text 6 months warranty. Don’t believe what he says or writes – he will NOT make it right. If you’ve given him money, my advice – get it back.
