Additional Notes

Complaint: My fiance ****** **** amd I purchased a part from this business. Our mechanic installed this and it did not work. We called the company and they said that the product is sold as is. I witnessed them tell her the part was working. They sold us a broken product and claimed it worked.

Desired Settlement: I would like a refund, and reimbursement for the time our mechanic spent installing this product which is 120.00

Business Response:

Sorry, but all electronic parts, regardless of the matter are sold AS IS, NO WARRANTY.  We explained to you that the engine wire harness you wanted to purchase was pulled from a ****, you are putting it on a FORENZA, the vehicles are different - we advised you to verify that this for sure is the right part because it is sold AS IS NO WARRANTY, you decided to purchase even with our warnings.  Besides the fitment issue to begin with if the item is not working, and it is an electronic component that was sold to you WITHOUT a warranty, it means, you do not have a warranty and you cannot return the part - we never hid this from you and in fact brought it to your direct attention.  Also, right above the check out counter you can see where we clearly state again that all electric parts are sold as is no warranty - in both English & Spanish. 

Consumer Response:

Complaint: ********

I am rejecting this response because:

ThIs response is untrue. I did not become aware that the part was from a **** until today. I specifically called and walked into that office to purchase a harness for a 2008 Forenza which was exactly what I saw on ebay. I am now even more upset because this company is untruthful. They never warned nor told me this was for a different car. My receipt states that it is for a forenza which is what I asked for.  


***** ******

Consumer Response: Complaint: ********

I am rejecting this response because:
Yes please upload the signed copy. 


***** ******

Business Response: So you want to also deny the fact that on your receipt it also says it was sold for a ****?  Because I'll be happy to upload proof.

Consumer Response:
