Yet another update! I'm exhausted.
Oh, come on! Now the latest is the Ayro is going back to factory in Texas for repair!!! :oops: We had the exact same thing happen with our 1st RV trailer going back to factory in Indiana about 5 years ago.

Apparently a conversation between factory and dealer determined such an action is prudent, just like the (many) problems we had with our Winnebago 5th wheel.

More like just enjoy being unique. I've had uncommon rather than cookie cutter vehicles all my life. I had an AMC Gremlin, a tiny 1972 Honda 600 (car) it was twin cylinder, air cooled with 10" wheels, Isuzu diesel pickup when nobody had diesels, a Shuttlecraft which converts jetski into a boat, a Slingshot when they 1st came out, a 3 wheel reverse leaning trike (Piaggio MP3 500), have a Can-Am Ryker, and now the Ayro 311. :D

You do have quite a track record for unusual vehicles. I appreciate that!
Hopefully they get it fixed or give you a new one!

But next time it breaks, I might be SOL, as parts might be unavailable. I might have to redesign it by putting a small diesel engine in it or something like that.

My cousin in North East England had an Isuzu diesel pick up. I had a gas one. UK
Consumer Reports gave them a very low rating. I had 60,000 miles totally trouble free miles.

Oh dear, you're that Gremlin guy everyone points at and snickers!!!!! :D :D :D I wanted one of those Isuzu diesel pickups. I don't know why Consumer Reports poo pooed it. Everyone that I saw that had one loved it. And that Piaggio inspired Yamaha to put their version of it out there. Nah, I'll still say you are a trailblazer. Just maybe blazing the wrong trail. :rolleyes:

If I am a trailblazer it's gotta be the eight one, as I take a systematic approach to everything. :D

Approaching around the 10th change of plan to get me back on the road, it seems!
:rolleyes:


Now the latest is that the dealer will exchange my defective Ayro 311 for another brand new one. They are working with Ayro Corporate (paperwork-wise) to make that happen. Apparently Registrations are in Ayro Corporate's name, so paperwork is a bit of a clusterfuck, as they are getting back the old unit returning to their custody. I'm extending my patience to this latest iteration to getting back on the road.
:cool:

Yeah, but I'd rather go thru that kind of hassle and get a new machine over having them fool around with the older machine and have problem after problem keep delaying things. And that's exactly where this was headed I feared.

I would have insisted on getting money back and bought something else, but there is nothing else out there. All that is available is LSEVs (Low speed Electric Vehicle) that by law are governed to maximum 25 MPH. Would be fine around town, but I must go on 45 MPH highway to get to town. The Ayro on VIN tag says MOTORCYCLE, being an autocycle or can be considered a golf car.

It'll be interesting once I get it how reliable it will be. It does have pretty good torque to get it up to 50 MPH.
