Problems with Product/Service
Read Complaint Details
Complaint: My vehicle broke down on route 25A in Syosset at night. I had S&S tow my car to their Syosset repair shop to get the issue diagnosed and fixed. S&S charged me approximately $50 for a diagnostic on my car, informed me that the battery needed to be replaced and charged me approximately $150 to change the battery. In total after tax I was charged $210.68 After I had the repairs done, my vehicle broke down again within 40 miles of use. I had the car towed to the Nissan dealer service center and was informed that there had been no problem with the battery nor alternator, rather the camshaft position sensor was broken and needed to be replaced. S&S not only misdiagnosed my service issue with the vehicle, they replaced the wrong parts on the vehicle at an inflated price. They did not address any of the pertinent issues with the vehicle and it subsequently broke down on the highway within a week. In essence, I took my car in for a diagnostic to S&S to see why it wasn't working, was given a false diagnostic report, was made to purchase parts and labor with completely false pretenses, and the car broke down within 1 week on the highway for the same reason it broke down in the first place.
Desired Settlement: I want a full refund for the diagnostic services that S&S auto performed, as it was completely faulty, and a full refund for the labor and parts the auto shop repaired, which had nothing to do with the vehicle's problem.
Business Response: I m very sorry to hear about the problems you are having with your 2003 Nissan please provide me on the dealers letter head or invoice indicating that my diagnoses had nothing to do with the vehicles problem as stated in your desired settlement section and that your old battery was good and was not the problem when we repaired your vehicle I than will be happy to refund you $210.68 thank you * * *******
BBB's Final Determination: Business offered a resolution. Consumer did not pursue further with BBB and the matter was assumed to be resolved
