Call them and ask nicely how the repairs are going.

I think I would give them a reasonable deadline to fix it (maybe another week), and tell them if it's not fixed by then that it's apparently not fixable and you'll be expecting a full refund of the purchase price. The only reasonable explanation is that they're waiting for some hard-to-find parts. But if that was the issue, I'm sure they would have told you by now.

What a bummer story.... The service may not sound common but I don't know the dealerships position either. It may have been traded in with an existing problem that the dealership was unaware of and the previous owner did know.

How long were you in possession of the bike for the 1.5km and have you considered demanding a full refund...?

Good luck...

I like the repair deadline and if not repaired by that date a full refund..... be calm and collected when dealing with them. It will get you further in the long run!!

Pay them a visit, as mentioned above, keep your cool always and ask nicely what the status is. Like others mentioned what is it YOU want at this point in time? The quad working or your money back? Luck. :cowboy:

I think my biggest worry is they hacked the bike back together and it just breaks again only to have them tell me to fuck off
