Default Buggy Depot Problems

I am new to this site so please understand I have never posted problems with a company until problems with Buggy Depot.

First of all I ordered an engine in February and did not receive until April. Then all the parts were not shipped, called and some parts were sent but not all of them. Finally after about a month I got all the parts. As I started putting everything together nothing matched up, wrong brackets, wrong cables again another 2-3 weeks and finally got the wrong parts again. Tried getting in touch with Travis but that did not work I guess customer satisfaction is not a priority to him. O' I am sorry he wanted me to send pictures which I had already done about 10 times.

Finally I gave up and started purchasing the right parts on my own. This has probably cost me about another $300.00. Well finally today I got everything together and fired it up and took off. About 50 ft. and the clutch blew into about 100 parts. After further examination the whole clutch assembly was wrong. The shaft was to long so they put a sprocket behind the clutch assembly to use as a spacer. Well the shaft being so long the outer clutch assembly had no room for the spline. I can go on and on but I am so frustrated after spending $1500.00 and still no Buggy
