Customer Reviews

Weekend Warriors! Review by Jerry and Monica
The Cardinal 150cc is a nice looking retro-style scooter and is a cheap way to get into the game. My wife and I bought two of them a few months ago just to shuffle around the local roads. Mine is Black and hers is Silver.

The Cardinal runs fine -- when it runs. One of ours seems to be habitually plagued with one problem or another. In the first two weeks, it was not down three times for the same issue (not able to start and stalling at lights).

I tried my best to figure it out, and eventually took it to a shop to get it fixed. It turns out it was a faulty ignition coil. The mechanic sent the part to you guys and a week later a new one arrived for free. All I had to pay was the shipping and off-course for the diagnosis and labor... which was about $180 all in total. Not so bad.

The other scooter hasn't had any problems (knock wood) and starts up and runs just fine. Ultimately, I'd say they are good vehicles, and shit happens... after-all, its made in chine, not known for the highest level of quality... but great value!

The problems aside, the scooters are a good price for the value (assuming that the majority of them operate as they should), keeping in mind the old maxim that you get what you pay for.

In speaking to other people I know with Chinese made scooters, they haven't had any problems, so I guess I'm just the odd man out with one that had a few glitches.

Overall, my wife and I are very happy and enjoy trips around the countryside and overnights to bed and breakfast spots out of town. Its a great way to get out of the city and enjoy the country. (Posted on 7/22/13)
