Complaint: My Check Engine Light came on in my 2009 G37x last Friday morning so I contacted my local Infiniti dealer to schedule an appt. They told me the soonest they could get me in was Monday. I dropped my car off and within a few hours they called and told me my Catalytic Converter would need to be replaced and the cost was $1570.00. I told them I would call around to see if I could find a better price, after doing some research I called and told them to go ahead and do the repairs. My car was ready Tuesday and I picked up Tuesday evening. When paying the repairman (******) stated that my car has two exhausts and one was clogged causing the engine light to come on. I then asked well is the other in satisfactory working condition. He stated that it did not bring any codes and "there is no way to tell" if anything is wrong with it. Needless to say Thursday evening my check engine light comes on again....I call and ****** happens to answer and say "oh well there are a thousand things that could make it go off" bring it in we will have to check. I usually need a loaner car so again I couldnt be seen until monday. I called back and spoke to the manager *****, who said if I could wait they would check the car today. I arrived there within 20min, after about five minutes ****** comes in again and says "welp" its the other on and it will be another 1500 to repair. What seems fishy to me is that the car was just there two days ago, and you said it was fine. The best advice would have been to say maybe both need to be replaced. I feel I was not informed properly about what was going on with my car and decieved. My family has purchased 7 cars from Sam Swope (the **** family tell them to look in their records) and this last experience when purchasing my car was just UNSATISFACTORY there were problems with the car when I bought and I filed a complaint with u in 2012. Previously I purchased a 2005 GX470 that had electircal problems and was forced to bring the car back and take my 2007 Hummer H3, you all are not loyal customers and I will NEVER purchase a car from your dealership again!
Desired Settlement: Just totally dissatisfied with the service and nonchalant attitude that the repair men have when reading of these charges ESPECIALLY ******....>I have had issues with his attitude before and usually Hoping I dont get him when I come there, I will say ***** is always nice, informative, and professional. Just totally disappointed with Sam Swope we have always been loyal customers and we dont feel we have recieved loyal treatment. Contacting me with an explanation or solution would be satisfying to me!
I appreciate Mr. ***** for bringing this to my attention. Because he is valuable to us, and he just purchased this vehicle a year ago, we have extended our resources to provide credits to repair his vehicle and he seems to be very satisfied with this.
He came to us in need of repairs that are expensive and I am sure it was disheartening when the second catalytic converter tested deficient during a later visit. Parts had to be ordered, inconveniencing him even more, having to Wait and reschedule yet another appointment.
I never intend for our customers to face frustrations on our behalf. His satisfaction is very important to me and I have apologized. I am happy to be able to provide credits for him that will compensate for the remainder of the repairs needed, with some assistance from Infiniti North America. I appreciate the opportunity to continue to meet all of his future automotive needs. I also give my heartfelt thanks to the Better Business Bureau for all you do to assist us in maintaining these valuable customer relationships.
BBB's Final Determination: Business offered a resolution. Consumer did not pursue further with BBB and the matter was assumed to be resolved
