Additional Notes

Complaint: I purchased a 2009 Chevrolet Avalanche from ******** ****** at James Wood Motors. I live approx an hour and half from Decatur and worked with ******** thru the phone /emails / text. The pictures on the web looked great, very clean truck. So when we spoke I specifically discussed with ********- Myself- the truck looks nice and very clean, your car fax says no accidents and one owner... ********- Yes, it's very clean and excellent condition only one owner, very we'll taken care of. I was running late and have multiple texts and emails and ph calls that Saturday, what can you be here, we're closing you need to hurry. I get there and she hands me the keys and says you take for test drive. I took for test drive, it was getting late in the day and I did not notice any problems. It was cloudy and rainy for week plus and on a nice sunny day I'm walking to the truck and the rear right quarter panel is a different color. It is white, and the truck color is a summit white. There are paint marks on the plastic trim of the truck. I texted ******** instantly and said, hey you said this truck was in excellent condition, never wrecked and the qtr panel is the wrong color. She said she never knew and she would call me first thing in the morning. Never heard from her, sent her email. No response.

Desired Settlement: I would like for James Wood to pay for the new paint job to match the color of the truck.

Business Response:

James Wood Motors contacted Mr. ******** and made arrangements to pick up and deliver his truck to the dealership for further inspection. Upon further inspection Mr. ********'s complaint had merit and we understood his concern. Although the history on this vehicle showed no prior accidents there was obviously some paint work done on one of the quarter panels.  Not only had paint work been done it had been done poorly and had not been noticed during our inspection.  To resolve this issue to Mr. ********'s satisfaction we are in the process of repainting the quarter panel in our GM certified body shop.  Once the work is complete we will make sure that Mr. ******** is completely satisfied with the work and return his truck to him at no expense.


Consumer Response: Better Business Bureau:

I have reviewed the response made by the business in reference to complaint ID 10549650, and find that this resolution is satisfactory to me. I would like to praise management at James Wood Motors for their prompt response and doing everything to make the truck look like a perfect Chevy truck.
