Radios look good but don’t have longevity.

I spent thousands of dollars with Tim at snake radio customs in this one year time frame. I gave Tim nothing but my friendship, trust, respect and very reasonable tips at every turn, but snakes bed side manner when something goes wrong is absolutely deplorable. The money I spent on these radios for them to fail the way they do is insulting and snakes response to say its not my faultwith the nasty tone in his voice is even more insulting. I now have to figure out what to do with getting the low hours 142 fixed since that radio belonged to a family friend. The 2000 and 148 I brought off snake will be up for sale shortly being I dont even want to look or use anything snake worked on. Snake has disrespected me for the last & final time, I hope he enjoys my hard earned money that was squeezed out of me for these lemons. Radios owned by snake. Cobra 142 - failed on the transmit side twice in under a 10 months time frame. Cobra 2000 had failed nitros that never worked Cobra 148 hasnt failed yet. Note im to worried to use it so it has no hours on it. Note::The 142 and 2000 radios cost $120-130 to shipped to and from NY to AZ. My two antenna systems both give me a 1.1-1.3 swr across the cb band. In final, if you want a radio to look cool with all the nitro lights then by all means go to snake radio customs but know the internals will fail under constant use. He offers a one year bumper to bumper warranty BUT GOOD LUCK. *** CRY POVERTY THEN CARRY ON LIKE A CHILD HOW THIS ISNT HIS FAULT. He has no value in how much one spends on his product and its clearly displayed. Note there are better cb shops to get radios from for a fraction of what snake charges and the radios will most like be more on the level of competition. Video provided is how I sounded in my friend radio. Complete transmit fail.

Preferred solution: At least a partial refund and an apology.

User's recommendation: If you want beauty use snake of you want performance absolutely go else where.

Deceprive practices in general.

They have banners show up randomly with no $$$. THE Banner does not SPECIFY PAY ITEM. So I only click to look, then I find the item listen in all rooms in the record list. To me that is deceptive. They need to Put $5.99 or $$$ on the Banner of everything if it does cost. If it had specified cost, I would never have clicked it in the first place. My family asks me why did you add it to record list? I said I clicked on a blank banner with no $$$ just to see what it was??? Then i get yelled at no reason.
