Complaint: My 2007 dodge charger was approved thru my insurance to get repainted due to a vandalism on 6/19/2012 On 6/19/12 ****** **** with The Body Shop accepted to repaint my 2007 Dodge Charger which was involved in vandalism and was approved thru Liberty Insurance claim #XX-XXX-XXXX for a total of $6309.91. I spoke with ****** and asked if I choose to paint a different color how much would the shop charge me to paint all the door jams including trunk and hood. He stated $1000 which he needed up front before he could start. The shop kept my car for 30 days which when I came to pick it up it looked good but then i notice the driver door had the thick orange peel threw out the entire door. The doors won't close tight or open properly due to the thick paint on the door jams. He asked me to take it home and bring it back the following week. As I drove home I notice the following; my door handles had the missing button to cover the screw, the trunk and gas tank jams had the same issue as the doors, windshield had over spray and the molding was sticking out of the glass, which the shop had window replaced. The inside cover of the tires had paint over spray, the tail of the trunk has thick drops of clear coat. The doors bottom molding was loose. There are sections that the paint is chipping due to dirt in the paint. They also were to replace my front and back tail light covers but instead the shop buffed them vs replacing. I told ****** per insurance agent he had to ask for a supplement to get the order approved and get them replaced. When I informed him off all the issues his answer was "well this is a repaint and since the prior paint look like **** I didn't think it would matter". I informed him he got paid for a good job and not a mess. Throughout that year I have taken the car multiple times and he has done minor and not complete repairs. The last repair was two months ago which I gave him a list of repairs are not completed, he informs me, "it's the end of the week bring it on Monday". I call him only to get informed that the owner has decided not to deal with the problem and that I'm on my own. On 4/24/12 I s/w ******* ******* from Liberty Mutual regarding my concern which he in turn called the shop and s/w ****** **** (manager) and tried to be the middle man to see if he could bring a resolution to the problem and ****** refuse to fix the issues or request a supplement for the replacement of the lenes. The Body Shop collected a total of $7309.91 between my insurance and I to repaint and fix the damages to my car. Instead the manager chooses to make up excuses on why there are so many issue because his employee who painted the car was caught getting high and he guaranteed me that the shop would fix it but instead im getting the run around.
Desired Settlement: Ive tried to get the situation resolved by myself and thru my insurance as the middle person and the manger Johnny Ford choose to ignore the issues and refuses to fix the repairs. I want a refund so i can have my car fix the right way and the first time around by a legitimate company and not my drugged out employee's. I want the full refund including of $7309.91 plus the 30day rental.
