Additional Notes

Complaint: This is a copy of the email I sent and received no reply: **** *******Capital City TransmissionAfter I left your shop the last time I was not to happy about the money I had spent on something that you should have covered and had no planes to ever return, however after more problems have surfaced I got to ***** about the horse **** work you did on my 2005 Sport Trac. Within a week after you worked on the transmission the first time I felt a vibration. Turned out to be three loose bolts and one missing on the front u-joint of the rear drive shaft. Torque? I tightened up the three bolts.The main problem started when a few weeks before I returned the second time I noticed a fluid leak. All the bolts holding the transfer case to the transmission were loose and some were about to fall out. Torque? I tightened them all back up and still had a leak so I came back to your shop. You said that the transmission was cracked and it was due to too much torque. You completely ignored me telling you about the bolts that had loosened up and that I had tightened them. The problem was not enough torque applied with your torque wrench. I feel you should have covered your own mistake. You didnt and I spent more money on another transmission.I mentioned that the four-wheel drive was not working and so you did a transfer case rebuild that never did any good.About a month after my last visit the two bolts holding the transmission guard to the frame on the right side fell out. The threads were stripped out of the frame. Torque?A few months go by and then the cheap piece of hose you put in when you added the in-line filter in the cooler line broke and I had fluid everywhere. I had to call for a ride and do a roadside repair. Good job?I had to pull the engine to work on it and I found three of the bolts holding the transmission to the engine block are missing. Torque?I pulled the transfer case apart and found a worn lockup fork to be the problem. How could you rebuild the case and not notice that just does not set to well with me. Are you sure you even took it apart? Be honest. The transmission is starting to do the same crap that it did just before it died last time. I have it out of the truck and plan on working on it myself unless you care to try to make things right. ****** ******* Box ************ City, MT **###-###-####

Desired Settlement: I would like the money I spent on the 'Transfer Case Rebuild' that never happened.

Business Response: To whom it may concern, I **** ******* owner of Capital City Transmission  never received the letter from ****** ***** due to it being dropped into my bulk mail. As soon as i realized i had received an email from him i called him yesterday and we are resolving the problem. If he would have called me then this would have been resolved long ago. He also never returned for me to fix the initial problem after the repairs where first done. He stopped by and told me that the transfercase  was still having issues. I then told him i would tear back into the transfercase and do the required install recheck and filter removal at that time. He never returned and this has been the first i have heard anything 30 thousand miles later. Sometimes bolts come loose and leaks happen that is why an install recheck is required on our work. We strive hard to make things right but when we are never confronted with a complaint until its too late its hard to correct it. ****** is due to come in this week and bring along his parts due to his vehicle having engine failure. If you have any more concern please call me at ********. Thanks.
