Problems with Product/Service
Read Complaint Details
Complaint: I took my 2009 Acura MDX in for repair on October 23, 2015 due to an error message "tighten fuel cap." I was told there would be a $95 diagnostic fee that would be applied to the repair work. I was charged the fee and told the problem was with the computer and they performed a "hard reset." I received the same message a few days later and called **** to report the problem he stated it may be I need a new fuel cap or a purge valve. I explained to him that I thought that was the purpose of the diagnostic to determine the problem and that my schedule was tight and I was not sure when I could return. He told me the problem was not serious and no damage would be done to the vehicle before I could have the problem corrected I would just be irritated with the message. December 28, 2015 I took my vehicle to another Acura dealer for another issue and it was determined that my purge valve did need replacing. I am requesting that the $95 fee paid to Acura of Columbus be refunded as they did not correctly diagnose the problem and whatever they diagnosed and reported they fixed did not stop me from receiving the error message.
Desired Settlement: As stated above I would like a full refund of the $95 paid for diagnosis/,repair.
Business Response: To Whom It May Concern:
We would first like to apologize for any inconvenience that may have been caused from this issue not being resolved. Secondly, we have issued the $95 refund to Ms. ****** ****** on January 15, 2016. The check number is ***** and was mailed to **** ********** ** ******** ** *****. The customer should have received this refund by now. If not, please contact us at ************ and please ask for ***** *******
Thank you and we hope we have resolved your issue.
