Being a starving student and taking public trasnsportation I decided that a motorscooter would be a great alternative to public transport. so after some research I decieded that a reliable Il bello 150cc scooter from point Loma scooters would be a great value. having it now for several weeks im getting 75mpg and having a great time getting around. Great job guys!

Purchasing a scooter from Point Loma Scooters has been an ABSOLUTE NIGHTMARE. I purchased a brand new scooter from them on November 28, 2012, 4 days later, 2 screws fell out of the front fork (where the steering connects). To experience such negligence in assembly, SCARY.. Shortly after leaving the dealership following replacement of the screws, the scooter began dying while at an intersection. I immediately rode it back to the dealership and it was taken out on a test run. I was told "it is the way you are riding it." Shortly afterwards, the same thing happened again. The shop was closed, so I had the motorcycle towing pick me up and take it in the next day for repair. They did nothing to fix the problem, once again blaming it on the way I was riding it. I demanded a refund and was turned down. So I proceeded to file a DMV complaint, that ended up going nowhere. Over the following few months, the scooter went back and forth to the shop, they thought the carburetor needed to be cleaned (this I had to pay for), then they replaced the carburetor, and now the engine is being replaced. The problems are still happening 4 months later. Over the last 4 months, my scooter has been in the shop a total of 42 days! They are not fast at repairing or communicating. This scooter is a complete lemon! I want a refund and Point Loma will not comply. Just waiting to wake up from this nightmare...
