Additional Notes

Complaint: I made an appointment for an oil change and to fix the ignition which was a recall issue on a Saturn Vue because the key could come out of the ignition when running. When I dropped the automobile off the driver passenger door opened perfectly. When I picked up the car about 5 pm the door would not open from the inside causing me to crawl out the passenger side. I called them immediately and told them and I was told to bring the car back so they could fix it. I called to verify if they could fix it in the morning, and the mechanic told me it was my fault and that they never touched the door. I asked to speak to the manager and I was directed to the owner. He said it was not their fault, and they never touched the door. That is unlikely because they made two new keys for the door. These keys were thick keys compared to the old keys. Certainly when they make new keys they would have tried the keys. Since the new keys were quite thick I think the mechanic tried to force them to work and something came loose or broke causing the door not to open. This seems something that the mechanic would have noticed when he moved the car to the parking lot for pick-up because he would not have been able to get out the door. Both the mechanic and the owner were rude and said I had an old car and they were not responsible. However, they obviously knew it was broken and would not even admit to being a part of the problem.

Desired Settlement: Fix the door so it opens from the inside.

Business Response: In response to ID #********, The customer brought their vehicle in for an ignition cylinder recall and an oil change. The vehicle was worked on by two different technicians, one for the oil change and one for the recall. Both technicians were able to get in and out of the drivers door when they needed to through out the time the vehicle was here. The customer later informed us of the issue with the inside door handle and we ask if they could bring the vehicle back for an inspection. We do believe that the inside door handle did break, the door handle is inside the door panel and not visible without removing the panel. We replaced the ignition cylinder which is on the steering column and we changed the oil and oil filter, none of these repairs would effect the inside door handle. The two new keys which were apart of the cylinder repair also would not effect the inside door handle. This car is 14 years old and has a lot of miles on it (168180) and parts do give out. Our technicians were the last ones to get in and out of the car and we used the inside door handle several times while the car was in our possession and it appears the inside handle gave out, ( not to our knowledge at the time ), but that does not make us responsible for the repair. Inside and outside door handles break often, especially as vehicles get older with a lot of miles, think of how many times they are being used. In conclusion, we did decline to repair the inside door handle for free and with the way the customer treated and spoke to us, it made that decision easier.
