As well as not receiving replies to emails though, many people have called and been promised call backs or email replies with information and never received them either.

I gave Sumo another chance last week; I called asking for a price on a Carbonetic LSD, said they'd get back.. didn't. Called again, said they'd definitely get back.. didn't. Waste of time.

I see they haven't been online since October. Kinda pointless having a section on the forum really.

I recently bought an rsk from them with very quick delivery. maybe only get good service when you buy something lol
to me it seems like if they have it in stock.. they are a good company to use but if they have to mess about getting prices and stuff.. they basically don't want to know!..

Why such an official statement? It all feels a bit out of touch to be honest. It takes a few seconds to make a call or write an email. The excuses and official reply just feels a bit off.

As others have said, being on more often and contributing to conversations will build up the rapor. You don't even need to learn anything. Just look at Cazza's posts from when she was still at Sumo and you will instantly see how she was able to help people and give people what they wanted.

I've just got an email from Sumo Power regarding my order of a replacement HKS RSK filter. They got back to me within a day to say it's been shipped out now. This seems like normal service but others have clearly had problems?

Replacement filter delivered. Business as usual it seems.

Well I also gave Sumo another chance. However 2 weeks after ordering still no strut! Wouldn't mind if they were out of stock but they are not. 2 calls and 2 emails, still no answer :(

Im on day 8 of waiting for an air filter. No reps from Sumo seem to login here anymore.

I would get them on the phone mate and chase them up...

I myself will be giving them a call tomorrow, an cancelling. Can't be arsed with these people. If they spent less bloody time spamming Facebook with rubbish all day, and focused on customer service and representation...

Cazza was a big loss to them

I've bought several things from Sumo when she was there

Often, as I have a 1.8, I first wanted to know if the item was compatible

She would go straight to the workshop and consult the techs, and / or check out the specifications, then advise me

When / if I then ordered, it would be despatched the next day

This thread is testament to how good-a-job Cazza was doing for them. I hope Sumo pull their finger out and correct this situation but it's looking less and less likely. They've gone from being one of the more respected dealers to this sorry state of affairs overnight.
