Complaint: On June 6th I visited ***** **** on ****** **** for an oil change. On June 8th I was driving home from work when my car started making weird noises and metal was screetching. I wasn't sure what was going on so I pulled over to check everything out. I didn't notice anything so I kept driving. I drove 50 feet and the noise kept going so I called road side assistance and because i wasn't near the city they were unable to locate me and no help was sent. I was stranded for 3 hours until I finally flagged down help. My skid plate was dragging on the ground and so they removed the two remaining screws and the next day I went to my mechanic and he told me that I needed to order some parts from Honda and so I ordered them and I am expecting them on June 17th. I have contacted ***** **** Corporate and was told to contact the Franchise Owner. I have left them numerous messages and they have yet to return a single phone call. I have been in touch with the store manager and area manager who won't give me an answer on if I will get reimbursed for my out of pocket repair costs.
Desired Settlement: I would like to be reimbursed for my expenses of the parts and labor and compensation for the stress and personal time used to resolve this matter.
We apologize for any inconvenience this caused our customer. We spoke with her and were awaiting copies of the repair invoices, so we could reimburse her. At this time she should have received the reimbursements she was seeking. Again, we are sorry and have addressed the service issue with our management and technician teams at the location. Please have the customer contact James K**** directly if she did not receive the reimbursements.
Business Response: We believe the dates of communication back and forth between the customer, the store, the BBB, and the ** ***** ***** led to some confusion between us and the customer. Again, we apologize for any inconvenience this incident caused the customer. According to our documentation the customer has already received a full refund for the amount paid to ***** **** as well as a total reimbursement for the expenses the customer incurred for the skid plate replacement. Our financial records indicate that the check covering those expenses has been cashed by the customer, therefor we consider this issue resolved. We have addressed the procedural mistake with the management team and crew at the location to ensure it doesn't happen again.

Complaint: On 10/02/14 , my niece took our 2001 PT Cruiser to the Jiffy Lube at XXXXX *******************, Oregon City. She was told that in addition to the simple oil change that she needed a "Brake Fluid Flush" because the brake fluid contained moisture 3%. The charge for this was $89.99. Later the brakes had to be re-bleed because of air in the lines. After the oil change, she had to add oil at least once a week. She then took the car to a second Jiffy Lube in Oregon City, 01/12/2015. Upon arrival, they found no oil showing on the dipstick. As they were doing the oil change, they discovered that the oil pan plug was stripped and cross threaded. They had to replace the oil plug with a temporary oil plug. They stated the oil pan threads were stripped. So, on 01/15/2015, we returned to the Jiffy Lube shop that did the first oil change. We reported the problem and showed the Manger *********** , the statement from the second Jiffy lube. He was very unprofessional, stating that if I had that kind of attitude, he would up his attitude. And that the car had an additional 7000 miles on it and that would be the impact. I stated to him that High Mileage Oil will last that long, and that the 3000 mile change is no longer a requirement. In the end, the car was pulled in, he replaced the oil plug with "factory plug". And he handed me the replacement plug calling it a "cutter plug". I explained to him that a cutter plug was the same as a "tap and die ", that it would recut the threads in the aluminum pan. I disagreed. This morning, 02/16/2015, I found oil all down our driveway. I checked the oil level and it was down to the minimum level. I also placed a clean piece of cardboard under the car to trace the leak. Within 30 minutes, I found a tablespoon amount of oil on the cardboard. I called "*****", and explained the problem again and the new information. I requested that we take the car next door to a different shop and have a third set of eyes check. He did not wish to walk the 50 yards to shop next door. I would not rate them as acceptable in any manner.
Desired Settlement: Replace oil pan.
Business Response: Initial Business Response /* (1000, 5, 2015/01/29) */ It appears that after this complaint was filed the customer took the vehicle to an independent repair facility to repair the oil pan and we reimbursed him for the expense. We believe this issue has been rectified and apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused this customer.
