Complaint: The purpose of this complaint is that I was overcharged for the actual work done and cost of the replacement parts to fix car as it was quoted. It did not take 3.5 hours to remove 3 screws and 2 nuts on the doors. I did it myself at home and it took 20 minutes. How on earth do they charge me $120 hour for labor and then say it took 3.5 hours to fix it? Why was I charged $229.43 for the part when you can buy them new, delivered for $160.60 (43%rip off) All consumers should be aware that the work they do will be a flat rip-off!!
Desired Settlement: Help other consumers be aware of this repair shop rip-off trap that is screwing customers!
As of this morning I have tried on two separate occasions to contact Mr. ******. First date was 2/11/2015 at 8:34 am and then this morning
2/18/2015 at 9:14 am in both cases left a message to return my calls as of 10:50 am have not heard from Mr. ******.
Sincerely, **** ****

Problems with Product/Service
Read Complaint Details
Complaint: I bought my Cobalt with an extended warranty from Classic Chevy in late 2008. Two years later, I notice a roaring sound and a vibration in the pedals. When I got my tires replaced at Firestone, I was informed that my right hub bearing needed replacing. As this issue in covered under the extended warranty, I took it into the new car service department at Classic Chevy. Once there, they treated me with very little respect but they replaced the bearing. A little over a year later, I began to hear the sound and feel the vibrations again. So, I took it back into the new car service department, where I was, again, treated rather poorly and was told that the noise and the vibration occurred because the "rear tires" were "cupped causing excess road noise." They rotated my tires for me and assured me that there was no problem. A little over a month later, I was still experiencing the problem and took it back in. This time the service department begrudgingly replaced two hub bearings. The noise and vibrations immediately ceased. I am now having the same problem again and, instead of trusting my instincts and the fact that I drive the car every day, the service department is trying to convince me that the tires are simply "cupping" again. They attempted to sell me new tires because that would apparently fix the problem.y
Desired Settlement: I would like for them to at least look at my hub bearings to ascertain whether one of them is bad or not. If it is, I would like for them to fix it because I am still covered under the extended warranty.
Business Response: **** **** Service Director has driven the cobalt and is unable to determined the noise due to the condition of all 4 tires. The offer was made to Mr,******* that if he replaced the tires and the noise still exised we would replace any bearing that was noisy. Mr ******* replyed that they will budget for this and get back to Me. I also mentioned that we could meet or beat any price tires that they were looking to purchase. Sincerly **** ****
