Bought a farm buggy. Only did 133 miles and motor blew up.

Customer Question
Sent motor to suppliers mechanic...
Bought a farm buggy. Only did 133 miles and motor blew up. Sent motor to suppliers mechanic. They will not return it until we pay for the repair, although it was still inside its warranty. Also the Diff broke within 3 weeks of arrival, replaced it after 2 months of trying to get the new diff sent back. The new diff smashed again. Could you please advise as to what we can do to get our money back and return the Buggy? Cheers Joan

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
