Was heading that way too for my twins to get them each a go kart. The no exchange rule or refund only leads me to believe that they are about money. Not service

Beware dont buy from Desi

Basically bought a scooter, was promised 6 months warranty and nobody can back that up. I have to pay out of pocket $155 for a repair that should have been under warranty.

This NINGBO DONGFANG LINGYUN company is a joke, their 800 number does not work, and they are not even in the US.

This business should not be licensed at all, and this guy Desi is the worst type of rip off available Do not buy a scooter from them and do not buy a chinese scooter. PERIOD

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.

Original review May 11, 2015

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.

Thanks I was gonna give them a shot but after seeing all these bad reviews I guess not

Did you pay with a credit card? Can you prove the purchase?

This is the fifth event of such caliber Ive encountered about this particular business through years of fraudulent business practices investigation, Contact your CC or Bank to cancel or rebuke the transaction, or take the owner to civil claims court! No lawyers needed, just a judge bearing witness to the dispute, but the more people that complain and act the less likely the scammer can repeat his offense and victimize others.

Affordable Excitement has not responded to the Better Business Bureau.

They are putting their heads in the sand and waiting for me to go away.

I may never recover my funds, but my words will remain as a warning to others.

Do not buy from Affordable Excitement - like flushing money down the toilet.
