  • Ashton Motors still in business?

    Has anyone been able to get a hold of Ashton Motors? Phone lines are disconnected and the one number that does work says the mailbox is full? Maybe they went under? Anyone know?

      I heard that their financial backer pulled out and they shut down about a week ago. Blaire is a member of the forum here though, maybe he'll clarify.

        Yep, They are shut down. I went by their office and shop the other day and nothing was left. Their signs are down, and the shop was completely empty.

          I know they were toward the top of EPA Enforcement's list when they were out knocking on doors in Utah a few weeks ago.

            Just another good reason the consumers need to deal with an experienced CNG shop, one that follow NFPA 52 and installing EPA certified kits. Not one if these fly by night shops that are popping up at an alarming rate here in Utah.

              Well, he should have just done conversions "FOR OFF-ROAD USE ONLY"

                Ogden - Ashton Motors?

                Anyone know how to get a hold of Blaire with Ashton Motors? If not - does anyone know his last name and where he lives. I took their conversion class back in July and bought a kit from them. To make a long story short - still no kit and no refund. I did speak with Blaire about 3 weeks ago - he took my address and stated he would put the refund in the mail that day. Again - still no refund.

                Any info would be helpful. I'm not out to get anyone - but fair is fair.

                Thanks

                  Blair Barton comes to mind, but I'm not sure. Let me know if you get a number or anything, I'm owed as well.

                          I put a 50% deposit ($4750.00) on getting a conversion done at the end of June with the promises of it being done within a month. Talk about over-promising and under-delivering! Nothing was done and when I tried to get my money back, I sat in Kelly's office on Lincoln Ave. for about 45 minutes. He told me about all of his financial stress and how he didn't have any of the money to pay me back, but might get me 1/2 the next week. I told him that it sounded like he was "robbing Peter to pay Paul" just to keep the lights on and he flat out agreed!!! I had a feeling the company was going down the drain. After 2 more weeks of not getting any money or response from Kelly (he had his secretary Naomi do his dirty work - making excuses) I told them to reverse the charges on my credit card. The secretary said they couldn't do that because they didn't have any money. So, I've contacted the credit card company and let them investigate the whole situation - the cc company did credit my account! If anyone else out there is out $$$ and used a credit card, contact your company. I'll post if anything new comes of the cc investigation.

                            Just another reason to go with a shop with years if experience, not one of the fly by night shops.

                              Not to kick Ashton while they are down, but does anyone know what happened to their inventory? Repoed? May be some bargains. Also hope everyone that has dealt with them recently got their titles. Most dealers right before they go out of business will float vehicles.
