Additional Notes

Complaint: My boyfriend first brought his 1999 ***** ******** to Scott's one year ago to be serviced. They told him then, on top of the work they were doing, to consider getting his serpentine belt replaced because hot coolant had leaked onto the belt and weakened it. Since he had already spent money on other maintenance, he decided to hold off on the belt. Last week he got his brakes fixed, and while he was paying for them, the guy at the front desk told him again he should consider getting the serpentine belt replaced because it was in bad condition and could break at any time. Another mechanic was in the lobby telling a woman she needed to get her serpentine belt replaced, and he came over to us and said, "I'll show you guys too." He brought over two belts, one in horrible condition with rubber ripped off the top and one that was in mediocre condition with a few large cracks in it. He told me the condition of my boyfriend's belt was between the two belts he was showing me and that in places, the rubber had ripped off the top. I asked him how long he thought we had before it broke, and he said it was impossible to tell. We came back a few days later because my boyfriend was moving to Memphis and wanted the belt replaced. They charged us $117.30. He said the belt itself, a ******** Gatorback belt, costs $70, and the labor costs $50. I asked to see the old belt after they put in a new one, and the mechanic showed it to me. At that point, he told me an entire row of rubber had been ripped off the belt's side. There were no cracks on the ridged side, and the rubber on the top was in perfect condition. There were surface-level grooves on the back. I took the belt to a mechanic at ***** **** in Moline for a second opinion, and he said it appears to be in "good condition" and that no rubber had been ripped off the belt's side. I took it to ***** Repair Shop in Wheaton and got a third opinion, a man named **** who also said that in his opinion, the belt did not need to be replaced.

Desired Settlement: A complete refund: $117.30.

Business Response:

To Whom it may concern:

 On 5-19-2016 I had called to reach out to ********* regarding this matter and left her a message to please call me. ********* very promptly called me back, and we had a very good conversation regarding her dissatisfaction with our services on her boyfriends vehicle. She was very receptive to what I explained to her, and why we replaced the serpentine belt on the vehicle. I do believe it was a matter of our staff not conveying exactly why the serpentine belt needed to be replaced. After explaining exactly why we had recommended replacing the serpentine belt ********* had a much better understanding why it was recommended. I did offer if she wanted to, her boyfriend could bring the vehicle back to us and we would put the original serpentine belt back on and completely refund her money. ********* said no, that was ok, as she understood now why it was replaced, and she expressed none of this would have happened if things were conveyed to her correctly in the first place. I did let ********* know if she has any further questions to please call me. *********, if you do end up reading this copy, again I do apologize that all this had to go to this level.                                                

  After our conversation, all this should be resolved now between Scotts Service Place and ******** as she is now comfortable with the replacement of the serpentine belt service that we performed.

Consumer Response:
Better Business Bureau:

I have reviewed the response made by the business in reference to complaint ID ********, and find that this resolution is fine. However, the customer service that I received throughout this entire process was not sufficient. Though no monetary amount was exchanged, I still do not fully trust this business and think that they should be held accountable for the way I was unapologetically lied to.
