I purchased a 2007 HartCart from Hart Marketing Inc, also known as www.hartmarketinginc.com www.hartcarts.com, www.shawnhartmarketing.com www.bestpriceutvs.com
One day after riding this utv, the gear box shattered. It has a crack all around the casing.
We didn't know the crack was there until after parking it in the garage and noticing a puddle there the next day.
We called and explained the issue. The salesman said it was not covered by warranty and that is was customer abuse.
We have less then 10 miles and on 2 hours on use on this thing. No scratches or damage.
After a few weeks of frustration and rebuttal, we finaly gave up and called www.bestpriceatvs.com and had them order this gear box. We still had to pay for it since we didn't purchase it from them.
Horrible customer service. Shawn Hart smooth talked us into purchasing one. We trusted him with our $4695. Only to find he isn't a man of his word as he as posted.
We also saw his add on ebay at
item number was 120199571030
Unless he was to pay us back for the time, aggrivation, and gear box, we wouldn't recommend purchasing anything from him. After we told him we purchased the gear box from someone else, he offerd to send us a free ipod knockoff if we told him who we ordered from. I wander why?
We found several other sellers that sell the same thing for as low as $3795.
Sure he delivered the product 3 weeks after ordering if, but customer service is what really counts. What if i need a part in the future?
To say the least, we are very disappointed on purchasing this utv from Hart Marketing Inc.
We noticed reviews posted all over regarging Hart Carts.
go to www.google.com and type in hart carts or hartcart and read for yourself

After reviewing claims against them I have decided to purchase from www.bestpriceatvs.com
As well, i have pictures of the broken gear box and would send them to anyone that wants them.
I saw somewhere that was a class action suit getting started against Hart Marketing Inc. If anyone has more solid info, I would like the info posted so I may contact the plaintiff in the class action suit.
