Additional Notes

Complaint: I bought my 2011 Jetta in November 2012. During the test drive, the low tire pressure light came on and after the purchase I was continuously refilling the air pressure in one tire weekly. I brought my car in to O'Steen VW and was assured theyd take care of everything, including the 20K mile inspection I was due for. When I got my car back, I was told there were no issues found aside from the tire pressure which refilled. Thats it!A couple weeks later, the tire pressure light came on again. So again, I refilled the air pressure weekly for about 2-3 weeks until one morning the engine light came on. Frustrated, I made another appointment at OSteen for the tires and engine light. Again, they reassured me theyd take care of everything but 5 days later I got my car back and guess what? No tire issues were found aside from loss of pressure which was of course, refilled, again. The next day I took my car to ******** ***** where they found a nail in one tire before they even took my keys. Im SURE it was just an oversight...twice!Two weeks ago or so, in need of an oil change I took my car to VW of Orange Park. There, they changed my oil and checked my all my tires. In assessing my car the tech asked me if Id hit anything because of the severity of the issue. I hadnt so, he asked me to come take a look. Both front tires were stripped and the wire was coming out requiring replacement and a seriously recommended alignment. This should have been obvious to O'Steen. Instead it cost me over $500 worth of damage that could've been prevented not to mention safety! I've emailed them and have yet to receive a response of any kind.

Desired Settlement: I would appreciate full reimbursement of all work performed by ********** ** ****** **** and if they ever want me to consider doing business with them they'll need to offer some generous discounts for future services. The trust has been broken.

Business Response:


We received your correspondence regarding ******* ******.  We received this complaint on August 8, 2013.  That day I emailed and left a phone message for Ms. ****** requesting a copy of the receipt showing the amount paid to ********** ** ****** ****.  Our service director, ****** ********, emailed Ms. ****** on August 13 requesting this information as well.  We are awaiting her response along with a copy of her receipt so that we can proceed with reimbursement.
