Statement of Claim
Claimant says:
"Purchased rebuilt engine from Mabbco on  8/17/2018.  Mabbco states 12 month/12,000 mile warranty.
Less than 2,500 miles and 3 months later engine is defective.  Local Chrysler dealership says camshaft is worn away.  Engine is not road worthy.  Top speed about 35 MPH.
Made multiple attempts to reconcile with Mabbco for repair.  Mr. Byron Moore, President, says they cannot pay for repair unless at their shop.  This makes the warranty useless.  Also he makes disclaimer of camshaft warranty, along with any other parts, including the engine itself.
Basically, engine is sold "as is", even though a 12 month/ 12,000 mile warranty is stated both as advertising and sales incentive.
Mabbco now blocks my emails.
While at first I was satisified with just repair of the camshaft,  now I want nothing to do with Mabbco.  Require my full payment of $2,045 back plus expenses to ship engine back and my costs of dealing with this unprofessional, fraudulent company.
 Also, I  would be interested in others who have had similar problems with Mabbco contacting me.
