Problems with Product/Service
Read Complaint Details
Complaint: We took the used car in 1 week after we bought it because a mechanic told us the compressor was causing the whole car to rattle and shake. We took it in and Five Star subbed it out to another repair center who told us it was the alternator which they replaced. We were relieved to hear the noise gone but 6 weeks later the exact same noise reappeared and there was no cool air. We understand the repair issue with used cars but we told them it was the compressor and they did not address that, we had to pay another $500.00 after paying $8800.00 for this car. The car was in the back lot when we found it and had not even gone through inspection, I had trust in this company and felt the integrity was high enough that they would have inspected it before letting us leave with it. I now have no trust with this company and will never purchase there again.
Desired Settlement: $500.00
Business Response: spoke to **** ******* this morning. After a lengthy discussion I agreed to refund her the $486 she spent on the service visit on 8-13-2013. My reason for making the refund is for a customer satisfaction reason only. At this point Five Star Ford has spent over $1700 on a vehicle that was sold as is. We replaced the alternator that went bad five days after the sale(6-4-13) at no charge to her and felt that was the right thing to do. The A/C compressor locked up and quit working 12 weeks after the purchase (5-27-13) and we agreed to split the cost with the customer which they agreed to do. **** ******* felt the two repairs were one in the same based on a diagnosis she recieved from her mechanic. Our position is the noise she brouht it in for in June was repaired by the replacement of the alternator( which she indicates was fixed in her complaint) was not the same problem as the locked up compressor in August. With that said I do feel that the customer is being honest with us in that she believes the repairs are one in the same and in light of wanting to keep them as a customer **** ******* stated she would be willing to continue to do business with Five Star Ford in the future if we made the refund. I am glad to do that and look forward to doing business with her in the future.
