Additional Notes

Complaint: On 11/19/14 I brought my vehicle in for an oil change. **** said that he is almost done working on other customer's cars and all the lifts in the shop are being used. Told me to come back in half an hour. When I came back, **** took my keys and said that the car will be ready in 20 minutes. 30 Minutes later when I returned to the shop, I was informed that NO oil change has been done, and "someone" had crashed into my vehicle which was in their possession. He proceeded to tell me that it is not their fault that "someone" hit my car, even when I noticed that there were only two white vehicles in the shop when there were three when I arrived. With there being white paint transfer on the area that was damaged he still denied everything. He told me that it is not their problem that "someone" crashed into my car because it was parked in their back lot behind the shop and not inside the shop. Even though the car was in their possession and it was in perfect condition before I gave it to him. He claimed that they have insurance that ONLY covers the cars inside the shop. NO explanation or apology whatsoever. He told me that ***** (the president of the company) is on vacation and he will return in 10 days and I can talk to him. When I returned to talk to *****, hoping that he will be honest and take responsibility for the damages; I explained what had happened and he also proceeded to deny everything. They made NO good faith effort to resolve the situation. In fact *****, found this situation mildly amusing, He stated that "You could have crashed the car before bringing it in to us, how do we know that this wasn't you?" The estimate for the damages that occurred at 3C Automotive are well over two thousand dollars and *****, suggested to take it up with my insurance.

Desired Settlement: Hoping that he will be honest and take responsibility for the damages that occurred while they were supposed to be doing the oil change on my car. The estimate for the damages that occurred at 3C Automotive are well over two thousand dollars and *****, suggested to take it up with my insurance
