I had to have water pump repaired twice and I ended up having to pay $62.00 to have the issue resolved for something covered under warrenty
2/17/2015 had oil changed and was notified water pump was leaking. I had it repaired end of Feb 2015. March 6th took it back as still could smell Oder of antifreeze.They told me they got a bad batch of water pumps and it had to be repaired again. After two weeks I still smelled that Oder so I had spoke with ****** Senior complaint adviser with GM XXX-XXX-XXXX and I told her I wasn't confident with ** ***** and I wanted to take my car to get fixed where I purchased it, Michaels' Chevrolet Fresno Ca. She helped me set up an appointment for April 2nd 2015 but since I didn't want to take more time off of work I was able to have the car serviced 3/31/2015 as I had a holiday. I was told by Michales Chevrolet that there was coolant overflow and that is what I had been smelling and they power washed it,charging me $62.00. I feel ** ****'s service department did not service my car properly causing me time off of work using valuable personal leave hours and I had to pay to resolve the issues that should have been taken care of by ** ****'s. I have not received a phone call back after I left a complaint with their service department. ****** also told me that they had not returned her phone call about the issue.Even though ** ****'s is 7 miles from my home I will not take my car there ever again for service.

Desired Settlement
I feel ** ***** should reimburse be for the $62.00 I had to pay ******* ********** If ** ***** service center would have cleaned the area correctly I would not have felt the need to take the car back in. Because I had already taken the car to get fixed twice and was not satisfied I was forced to go else where.

Business Response
I have reviewed this case and am in agreement that Ms. ****** should receive a refund for the charges she incurred at ******* Automotive, We will be sending Ms. ****** a refund in the amount of $62.00 to her address on record,
Best regards,

***** ******
