Additional Notes

Complaint: We showed up Saturday 2/28 in the evening, and after 2-3 hours of test drives, waiting, paperwork wait, and an agreed upon purchase price and terms, after we were done with the paperwork, we noticed that we had Pivotal Protection $399 fee added to the contract papers. The sales manager just X'd where we needed to sign, and never discussed this "theft protection" plan. It was never mentioned, and the next day when we discovered this in the paperwork, they told us they do this on all vehicles, basically saying it was "mandatory", even when the paperwork that we signed had a slot for "declined coverage" stating it wasn't necessary for a sale. This type of contractual bloat is unacceptable, and when this wasn't covered in the original "here is your trade value, here is the price of the vehicles, and fees will total around $200" verbal agreement. We would like this canceled and refunded. Product_Or_Service: 2015 Toyota

Desired Settlement: DesiredSettlementID: Refund We would like the $399 refunded, it is not a required purchase, and it was covered over in all discussions and even during the signing of paperwork. The only "optional" item covered was the extended warranty, where they make you sign a "decline" line, to try to make you feel like you really should get it. This other "pivotal protection plus" was never discussed that we could decline it, just an x on the line where we sign that we accepted it. 9:30pm at night with 2 r

Business Response:

Mr. **** ****** was contacted today regarding the concern expressed in his complaint.  Upon review of the worksheet on which the transaction was negotiated it clearly shows that theft protection was negotiated as part of the transaction.  Theft protection is not required.  While it is on all of our vehicles at the times of purchase, it is optional for the purchaser to transfer the coverage to themselves.  We have agreed to cancel the theft protection for Mr. ******.  He is coming to sign and pick up new paperwork this afternoon.  We apologized for any inconvenience. 

Consumer Response:

Better Business Bureau:

The sales manager was great, and I was incorrect in my original complaint, it was the finance manager that we had an issue with. Theft protection was never verbally discussed during the signing process, nor was it called out as being optional, with an x placed in the authorized box for us to sign. However, after our meeting with them on this the 2nd time, Fort Wayne Toyota agreed to send a notice to Toyota Financing to cancel the theft protection and credit the amount financed to the loan balance. I have made a copy of that letter for my records.

I have reviewed the response made by the business in reference to complaint ID ********, and find that this resolution would be satisfactory to me.  I will wait until for the business to perform this action and, if it does, will consider this complaint resolved. We will wait until our next statement to see if this indeed was credited by Toyota against our balance, and if it had been, this matter can be closed. If not, we will need further action.

Additional Notes

Complaint: On Monday September 22nd, I brought my husband’s Nissan Altima in for a repair. The trunk was not opening with the controller or the button inside the car. I was told that the fee for “diagnostics” was $65. I thought this seemed a bit steep, but I was willing to pay this to fix this irritating problem. An hour after I dropped off the car, I received a phone call explaining that nothing was found with the initial diagnostic testing and that they were concerned that it was an electrical problem. This was going to cost more for diagnostics. The fee for this teir of diagnostics was $315. This, to me, was a ridiculous amount to pay for just the diagnostics. I told them that I did not want them to do that and I would pick the car up later that evening. I picked the car up, paid $65 (for absolutely nothing), and left. I had a friend of the family check into the problem. He ran an initial diagnostic check on the trunk (I’m assuming the same sort of initial test Nissan did) and found that it was not an electrical problem. He said that there was a button in the glove box that is a safety feature to allow you to lock your trunk so if somone gets a hold of your keys, they cannot get into your trunk. He pushed the button and the issue was fixed. I cannot tell you how angry and dissappointed I am in Nissan of Chesterton. This is an obvious case of ripping people off. They know very well how all of these cars work and this should have been one of the first things that they checked. I thought that going to the dealership would keep me safe from creeps that steal money from trusting people.

Desired Settlement: I would like a full reimburesment of $65. I’m not entirely convinced that a diagnostic test was even performed. If it was, it would have shown that it was not an electrical issue. Furthermore, I’m sure that the mechanics are aware of the button in the glove box.

Business Response:

results: After recent research realize that the problem was a over sight and a miss communication . Mrs. **** will be refunded in full $65.00 . The General Manager ****** ***** called and personally apologized and also awarded Mrs. **** dinner on us and a couple of free oil changes for this aggravated situation . Mrs. **** is Happy and will continue to support Chesterton Nissan as her place for Service.

Thank You ****** ***** General Manager Bob Rohrman's Nissan of Chesterton

Complaint: Hyundai Genesis R-Spec was dropped off for Service to fix the Front End and add new decals on front and back and window tent. While away at work I received a call from service desk asking for a pre payment for the services because of the costs was over $1,000. I gave my credit card information over the phone to the attendant. Later I learned from the attendant (female) that I would not be charged until I looked at my vehicle first to inspect it. Yesterday on June 13th I was told to inspect my vehicle prior to payment. I went to go pick up my car and during the inspection noticed that their was a gash, not a dent in my bumper. It was directly below where the new decal was placed. As if a tool scraped a dent on the bottom end my car. When I inquired about it to the Service desk manager, he immediately got offensive and yelled at my wife and I stating it was already there. My mother and my wife were present when the car was dropped off and confirmed there was not a gash in the bumper at the time it was taken in for service. It's a fairly noticeable gash. There was female attendant present during the time of drop off who talked with my wife about the service details and walked around the car with her. She was not available yesterday for us to speak with. Also I dropped off our other car Hyundai Genesis Coupe for an oil change and requested to have the wind shield wipers replaced the attendant who was upset about us asking him nicely about the damage to our other vehicle would not even get up from his desk to add the additional service to our work order request for the Genesis Coupe.

Desired Settlement: I spent 1500 dollars to get my car to like new condition. Only to discover that it was damaged in the process at pickup. I would really appreciate a formal apology to my wife and I about the rude and unprofessional behavior experienced. All I did was ask a question about my car and received the most rude response as if I was wrong for asking a question. Also I would like the dealership to take ownership of their faults and repair the gash damage on the bottom of our vehicle at no additional cost. If you look at the vehicle you can clearly see the damage is not ordinary. As far as the Genesis Coupe we will be taking it to another location for service on the windshield wipers once it is available for pickup.

Business Response:

To whom it may concern, my name is *** *******. I'm service manager of Bob Rhorman Indy Hyundai. I tried to contact Mr. ****** to have him come in to repair rear bumper. I have not received reply.

Thank you,

Complaint: Failure to honor warranty, and had to pay out of pocket for repairs that should have been covered under warranty March 8, 2014 I purchased a 2006 Kia Sorento with 108,765 miles on it. At this time of purchase I was given a warranty through the company of 3,000/3 months for the powertrain. I also bought an exented two year warranty. On April 29th at 111,007 miles my vehicle broke down and the dealership came and got it. The crank pully had broke and the dealership had to pull the motor to replace the crank. The dealership would not cover the fix of the part. This part was covered under my warranty. They also charged me for other things that they said they would fix when I bought it. The dealership got the car in the night before (a couple traded it in) before they sold it to me. That is why they promised to fix some of the items because they did not have a chance to go through it. The car still had the trash from the old customers pushed under compartments. Also the dealership didn't disclose the vehicle was involved in an accident back in 2010. I will be contacting BMV if this does not get settled. * There are no exclusions on the paperwork I have full powertrain warranty

Desired Settlement: I want a refund for the money of the parts that were under warranty $2467.21

Business Response:

We have received your letter regarding Mr. ****** concerns. On March 8, 2014 Mr. **** purchased a 2006 Kia Sorento, *****************, with 108,765 miles on it. At the time of purchase we agreed to fix the fuel light and tail light. Enclosed you will find a copy of document which he signed indicating repair of these items. There was no agreement to repair any other items. In addition, at the time of purchase, he was provided a copy of the vehicle "CARFAX." It clearly disclosed that there was accident damage reported. Enclosed is a copy of the signed document. In addition at the time of purchase, Mr. **** purchased a "Wynn's Plus" extended warranty for the vehicle. A copy is also provided.

On May 7, 2014 the vehicle was towed to our location with a power steering issue. There were a number of other items that Mr. **** requested to be checked. Upon inspection of the vehicle it was determined the bolt from the crankshaft "backed out causing the pulley to fall off." The vehicle was inspected by a representative of the warranty provider. It was determined that this was not a warrantable repair. Warranties most generally cover the failure of internally lubricated mechanical parts. Mr. **** elected to have other items repaired for which he was provided a discount.

It is unfortunate that Mr. **** experienced this failure that was not covered by the warranties. If Mr. **** would like to consider trading the vehicle, we would be happy to work with him. At this time our position is that no further assistance is required.

Complaint: I dropped my Kia Sedona Mini Van off at the Kia service department in Ft Wayne Indiana on a Tuesday,I was told it would be $80 just to diagnose the problem. Diagnosis: it would be $35 for a gear shift solenoid switch and $100 for labor. I gave them the Okay to start the work and I had to rent a car costing me $90 out of pocket to wait for my van to be fixed. (Grand Total= $305). The Kia service department called me on Friday of the same week and told me that they had made sure that the gear shift locked into place but there was ANOTHER problem (surprise, surprise). I declined to have the additional work done but They assured me that my vehicle now locks into park and is SAFE to drive and the new problem they found was minor. After paying the Kia service department in cash and picking up my Van, I soon realized that the problem was NOT fixed. I went back to the KIA SERVICE DEPARTMENT and I was told that if I wanted my money back I would need to wait for the van to be re-evaluated. I waited patiently with my 2 children for a half an hour before I had to ask again to speak with the service manager. He came out and told me there was nothing he could do, they did the work and replaced the part so I still owed the money. Unless I wanted to pay more money for another problem that MAY OR MAY NOT have anything to do with the first problem they cant help me. After demanding to talk to the General manager who wasn't in his office they contacted the HR manager who helped me get most of my money back. They still made me pay for the part that they replaced. When I returned to my vehicle ready to get out of there I noticed that the dash around my gear shifter was still disconnected and dangling on the floor by electrical wires. They didn't even put my car back together after they attempted to fix the problem. Product_Or_Service: soenoid switch for gear shift

Desired Settlement: DesiredSettlementID: Refund I would like to be reimbursed for the $35 dollar part that was replaced, which I don't think was actually replaced since it wasn't actually fixed. I will never take my vehicle back to their service department.

Business Response:

We have reviewed the concerns that Ms. ******* expressed in her complaint. Ms. ******* brought her vehicle, a 2006 Kia Sedona with 135,424 miles, to our location. The vehicle came to us with multiple issues. The primary concern was that the vehicle would not shift in or out of park without pushing the manual release. Replacement of the switch solenoid allowed vehicle to shift in and out of park without pushing the override button. Further, Ms. ******* stated that the vehicle had been in an accident. She wanted us to state the concerns that she was experiencing were related to the accident. She explained that she had already paid a $500.00 deductible and did not have funds for all of the repairs. She was told that we would not be able to state that the needed repairs were the result of an accident as we had not inspected the vehicle previously. The keys of the vehicle were stuck in the ignition. She did not authorize that repair. She was told that there were other issues. She said that she would have to do them at a later time. After paying for the repair she returned stating that the gear shift would move without pressing the brake. She said that she did not want anything else done. She said that she was not in a position to spend any more money. We offered to review the work completed. She declined. She said she just wanted her money back. She was refunded the labor but was told that she would have to pay for the part. She agreed and the labor was refunded. At this time our position is that no further assistance is required. We will not refund the money for the Shift Interlock Solenoid Switch. Please feel free to contact ***** ********, Parts and Service Director, with any questions that you may have.
