Additional Notes

Complaint: Our family arrived Sat 9/12 to the dealer to finalize financing and to pick up a 2015 ****** *** STi. We had previously viewed multiple photos of the vehicle before arriving. While at the dealership finishing up financing details, we were told that the vehicle was being serviced that an employee had noticed a little damage to one of the tires and that they were replacing it free of charge. We thought it was odd as my husband walked out to see the car upon arrival and noticed no damage but assumed we possibly missed it somehow. The service and completion was taking unusually long it seemed but we were also waiting with 4 children so we tried to be patient. We were then told awhile later that the servicemen just needed to put temporary plates on the vehicle and then we were ready to go. This also took extremely long and when I went to check in on the progress our salesman was in the service bay area and apologizes that he underestimated where the where in the progress and it would just be a moment. We continued to wait outside for about 20 min longer and the car was finally parked out front. Anxious to leave as we had 4 small children with us who had been patiently waiting for 2 hours we left promptly. Later that day we discovered there was a large chunk missing from the front passenger rim which someone clearly tried to cover with black marker. We also discovered a chip in the windshield on the passenger side. We immediately emailed the dealership to discuss what steps could be taken to have repairs made as we felt it was clear that an employee or serviceman damaged the car and attempted to cover it up. We received one phone call yesterday asking us to call them to discuss and have not been able to get in contact.

Desired Settlement: We would like to have repairs made at our local ****** dealership and for Mercedes Benz of St Charles to cover all costs. The estimated costs are around $500

Business Response: Initial Business Response /* (1000, 5, 2015/09/28) */ When I returned from an out of town business meeting on Friday, September 18, I read the Complaint Activity Report, Case # XXXXXXXX. I immediately investigated the situation and contacted the consumer, **** ******. I explained to her in detail the events that took place, apologized on behalf of the dealership and made immediate arrangements with her local ****** dealership to repair the wheel in question and Mercedes-Benz will cover all costs. She was very happy and thanked me for my help. We believe that this has been successfully resolved.
