Complaint I took my truck to ***** ****** on Feb 6 2014 because i was having trouble with it shifting gears,noise in the transmission, missing when it rains and coolant leak.Three or days later they finally got a hold of the warranty company Endurance Warranty Service.They are who MEPCO subs out to.Well ********* wouldn't pay for the other work to be done so that let me having to pay for it.***** ****** told them then that it needed a transmission,suspension work and the other work that they refuse to pay for.Well they wanted ***** ****** to tear it down further and Mr. ****** told them again that it would need a transmission,but they said tear it down further.Mr. ****** ask them if they were going to pay for this and they said no. ********* called me and told me that ********* wanted them to further disassemble the transmission and that they had denied the payment on the other work and that i was going to have to pay for it.And i asked what the hell was i paying them 2400.00 for?.He then said that i would need to put down 500.00 in order for them to continue.I asked what for,and he said because this company is notorious for have work done then not pay for it.So i had to cough up 500.00 for them to either put it back together or continue with the game that endurance was playing.Since i have a life i had to rent a truck from Feb 11 to Feb 15.I called ***** ****** on the 17th and they said it wasn't ready yet,because they were waiting to here back from **************** about the 21st Mr. ****** told me that ********* called and said that they were only going to pay 2000.00 towards another transmission.That was ludicrous because there were used transmission around that ***** ****** could find for my truck that they would guaranty and the only other option was a rebuilt from GMAC which was 4400.00.So on the 26th to March 5th i rented another truck to get around since ********* wouldn't provide one for me.I call ********* then MEPCO to find out why they tied my truck up for over a month on something that they were told need to be replaced 3 days after it was in the shop.I talked to a man name ***** at Endurance and he must have thought i was a retard because he said that the max payment was 2000.00.I said that didn't make sense because i didn't need to buy a warranty if that was all they were going to pay.I paid more that that for the policy.I told him that they could have had this done on the 9th of Feb.I had sent in for my reimbursement on the 2 rentals and they were denied.He said that was part of the max pay out on the transmission.I asked how in the world is repair coverage going to include rental,that is freaking stupid.I said ya'll have screwed me over,it cost me 2600.00 to get my truck out and there is no need to try and get the engine work done because i will get screwed even more.Ya'll have lied and deceived me on this policy and i will take this to another level to get my money back.I have a 2003 Chevy Silverado,I purchased it on Oct. 11,2012,the acc# is XXXXXXXXXXXXXX,I paid 600.00 down and 118.39 a month. I mailed 120.00 every month.
Desired Settlement I am seeking 1100.00 back because they cause me to spend an unnecessary 700.00 and to cover my 2 truck rentals.

The information in the table below represents an industry comparison of businesses which are of the same relative size. This is based on BBB's database of businesses located in Chicago and Northern Illinois. Businesses may engage in more than one type of business. The percent of time the business engages in a type of business is not accounted for. There is no known industry standard for the number of complaints a business can expect. The volume of business and number of transactions may have a bearing on the number of complaints received by BBB.
BBB records show the issues raised in the complaint have been resolved. Either customer confirmed the complaint has been resolved, or business confirmed the complaint has been resolved and customer did not respond to BBB correspondence informing customer that complaint will be considered resolved unless BBB hears otherwise from customer.
BBB found business made good faith effort to resolve complaint but customer not satisfied with business response
BBB found that business adequately addressed the disputed issues and made a good faith effort to resolve them; however, customer has informed BBB that he/she is not satisfied with the outcome. In some cases, business may have agreed to mediate or arbitrate the complaint but customer declined to participate in mediation/arbitration.
Customer not satisfied with business response; BBB did not find business made good faith effort to resolve complaint

BBB Customer Review Rating plus BBB Rating is not a guarantee of a business' reliability or performance, and BBB recommends that consumers consider a business' BBB Rating and Customer Review Rating in addition to all other available information about the business. If the BBB Rating is NR then only Customer Reviews are used for the Star Rating.
