I bought a 2009 TNG Venice from "Scooter Ria" (now "Garden District Scooters") last March. First, the owner of the shop (Steve Lopez) randomly charged $500.00 to my credit card, and it took 2 weeks for him to get me my money back. In the meantime, he gave me the runaround and was absent from the shop. Second, the shop was supposed to take care of my vehicle registration. My temporary tag ended up expiring and they issued me a new one, which also expired before I finally got my official plate (it took 6 months). Third, the scooter was sold to me with a $500 gas card from the manufacturer, which I never received. I don't think I would have bought the scooter if it weren't for the gas card. Fourth, the scooter frame recently broke in half (from normal use on New Orleans streets). I had the scooter for less than a year, and I found out the warranty is bogus because the manufacturer is out of business. Fifth, I never received the TITLE for my scooter, so even if I wanted to sell it, I couldn't. In the end, it was worth it to me to sell the scooter back to Steve for parts just so that I never have to deal with him or his shop ever again! The sleazebag "promised" not to put my scooter back on the street, since it is broken, but I don't believe a word he says. This business should be shut down. The owner is total thief & should go to jail.
