They want 1700 dollars to paint the hood, trunk, and top of car, also a rental car and the dent fixed they were supposed to fix in the first place

Car not clean. Battery was disconnected after second attempt to clean car. Forgot to install floor mats
We took or Volvo XC90 to DDD for an interior detail job. The car was not clean so it was returned for a redo. They didn't vacuum the carpet before steam cleaning. The employee confirmed that the car wasn't clean. When my wife returned for the redo the loaner car she was promised was not there and she was asked to wait for a few hours so they could clean another car for her to borrow. She instead rescheduled for the next day. I picked the car up and noticed the digital clock had been reset. This is done by disconnecting the battery. They also forgot to install the floor mats. I checked the battery and noticed all of the battery bracket bolts were loose. Upon re-installing the battery I noticed the clock was reset just like when I picked it up the second time.There is also a check engine light that wasn't on before the cleaning. I think they were upset they had to re-clean the car and sabotaged it. The employees were very rude when I picked up the car the second time. The car is still dirty and I don't believe the service we paid for was given. The check engine light may be a coincidence, but I have never seen this light and why was the clock reset?

Desired Settlement
A refund of the 119.00 and 20.00 tip.

Business Response
The company indicated that it made every reasonable effort to satisfy the customer. As a gesture of goodwill, the company sent a refund check ($139.00) to the BBB to be forwarded to the customer. The check will be sent to the customer via certified mail.
