Problems with Product/Service
Read Complaint Details
Complaint: For a month straight I have been dealing with poor, unprofessional, and absolutely unacceptable customer service. My first complaint starts with the repair department of JC Lewis. They failed to communicate to me about the condition of my vehicle, had a staff member not reporting extra/hidden damage to my insurance, and continued to drop the ball on communication saying they would call me and never did. My second complaint is with the used/new car dealership there. I went straight to the GM of the Company, Mike Offer. He handed me over to ***** ******* to find a vehicle that suited my needs. I found one, and they started dealing on it. I received a few calls on regards to some documentation they needed but only on their terms or when they needed something would they call. Two full days passed before I finally called to find out if my loan had passed. I HAD TO CALL THEM!!! Never is that acceptable. Then, I left a message for Mike asking him to call me back. Again. Two days. No Answer. I went in to speak with him face to face, at which point he told me he would have an answer to me by four oclock that day. NO CALL!!!!! And now, I am losing valuable business time babysitting them. I CAN'T EXPLAIN HOW UNPROFESSIONAL THIS IS! And I have been under severe stress as a twenty two year old woman having to do their jobs for them. Never will I do business with JC Lewis again and I will tell all my friends and family and my parents, who run a booming jewelry business, will be informing all of their customers of which are about 600 to 1,000 on a given vending day. If JC Lewis wants to run a company poorly, be my guest. I will NOT put up with it and I will make sure Savannah is chattering about what awful service they have. They will be lucky if a personal lawsuit doesn't come from this. My father is a mental health survivor and has Bi-Polar disorder. He has walked me through this the best of his ability and it has caused him severe, un-needed stress. THEY OWE IT TO US TO FIX THIS AND FIX IT RIGHT!
Desired Settlement: If they desire to settle this. They will sell me the 2012 Ford Escape and will decrease the price of the vehicle until my monthly loan payment is $250.00 and NO MORE.I am done playing nice. I have been kind, understanding and gracious. THEY WILL LOSE THIS SALE, and they will also lose my parent's truck (for repair), and my two younger sister's soon-to-be vehicle purchases. And I will be going to Granger Honda and telling everyone there what horrendous service I have received.
Business Response: We have gone above and beyond for this customer. State Farm was the issue when it was in our body shop and they finally totaled this customer car. She came up to see me and I said that i would help her as much as. We have tried very hard to get this customer appoved for credit as far as i personally called the head of the Ford Credit lending center for the southeast and he would approve her but not on the car that she choose.
