Higgins Power Sports — AARRGGHH!
Higgins Power Sports performed a top end rebuild of my snowmobile. It took them 3 mos to complete. The very first ride, the snowmobile had a top end meltdown due to overheating. Obviously, the shop did not properly repair the top end, causing the meltdown. They also put bad fuel into the sled from their own gasoline storage tank. After I returned the sled after the meltdown I expected them to repair again at no cost, to guarrantee their work. They CLAIM that they found water in the carb bowls. They also admit that THEY filled the gas tank which means any water in the carb bowls came from THEIR own gas storage tank. They told the judge in small claims court that the water came from "snowdust" that was sucked into the motor while I was riding. Except the one ride I went on before it broke again, it was a crystal clear and very cold day and I rode alone. So where did this "snowdust" come from? Then, after I lost in small claims ( I couldnt "prove" anything) I went to pick up my STILL broken snowmobile, and this shop actually had the gall to ask for, and get ( I had no choice)another $375 for "diagnostic fees" !! Then when I picked up my sled, I found that it had been left outside for 3 months and the engine was in peices and strewn everywhere (I can only blame spite as the reason they would do this) and the inside of the engine was all rusty. NICE. What a great business they run. This shop is run by a bunch of snotty arrogant 20 & 30 somethings who don't know the first thing about service and integrity. They lied to get out of their responsibility to stand behind their work and stuck me for over $2500...PERIOD. So I am out $2500 and came away with a broken sled that is in even worse condition then when I brought it to them originally. I am not an amateur who does not understand engines. I am an honest hard working person who would never talk badly of somebody's business or integrity unless I really felt that I have been wronged. And boy was I ever wronged. I have been motor-sporting and working on motors for over 40 yrs and I know a screw job when I see one. And this is the worst screwing I have ever received in my life. I HIGHLY, HIGHLY reccomend that you do NOT do business with this facility.
