How to return a moped?
So, I went to a store in Forest View, Illinois. They are known for selling, buying, and repairing scooters, mopeds, go karts, motorcycles, etc. I bought a 2010 Jonway yy50qt Magnum moped. I am the first owner. The salesman guaranteed me many things, threw in a free trunk, and a 3month warranty. I bought it for $ 1390, that’s including tax. They also filled it up with oil and gas before I left the store. In less than 24 hours/15miles I discovered the speedometer doesn’t work properly, I have a quarter of a tank left after 15 mile–not 80mile like the salesman promised–and it left me stranded in, literally, the middle of traffic on a busy intersection.
The customer service was good. I called the store after the moped gave out and they came and picked me up. I left the scooter with them because they “promised” a thorough inspection and fix the problem for free. They also offered to drive me to work which was 17mile away.
However, after stressing out about the situation I have decided I no longer want the scooter. After reading the receipt I realized that its not going to be easy to get my money back. They only offer store credit, however, they are known the buy bikes. I understand that I might not get all of my money but I would at least like the majority. So, this is where I need the help. I need help coming up with every possible line or phrase to get my money back. I don’t care if I have to lie. I just need ideas on how to approach this situation without screwing myself over. Should I speak to the owner, manager, or salesman. Idk, idk, I need ideas and peoples past experience. PLEASE!
