Complaint Detail(s)

6/12/2014 Problems with Product/Service | Read Complaint Details

Additional Notes

Complaint: Back in November 2013, I had encountered a dead battery around 1am, on my way home. After I gotten the jump, I noticed that my radio was not working properly. The radio locks up, requires some kind of an access code, and also I had 6 CD's in my CD player, in which my radio says there is not CDs to eject. I also noticed that if I leave my fuse in over night (radio fuse) it drains my battery and had required me to jump my car at least 4 times a day. I then went to the dealership that I purchased my car from in January 2014, and I spoke to the salesman regarding what is happened to my car. I told him the story, and he asked the service department to look at my car. They refused to look at my car on the same day for an unknown reason. The salesman felt bad that I they were being unprofessional and then issued me a due bill (which is free repair that I do not have to pay for). The salesman told me to give him a call regarding to set up a date because of my work schedule. He told me to call him the next day because the service department was called for a holiday. I called the next day as told, I wasn't able to get in touch with him. I have left countless voice mails regarding the incident that happened in November, and as of this date, I have not gotten a single call back, nor when I asked for a manager, I did not get a call back as well.

Desired Settlement: I would just like my car radio to work as it was when I purchased the car, all of my stuck CD's out, and also either a replacement, or some kind of way to get it fixed. I was promised that it would be for free, and I would like it to keep the promise I was made.

Business Response: Company states that they would like for the consumer to come in and ask for the service manager so that they can take care of him.

Consumer Response:  
Better Business Bureau:

I have reviewed the response made by the business in reference to my concern, and find that this resolution is satisfactory to me.

Service manager was out for the day, and will call tomorrow 6/12 and will ask for SM to see if I can come in on an agreeable date & time.

BBB's Final Determination: Consumer accepted resolution offered by the business.

Additional Notes

Complaint: Car dealership refuse to fix the car only drove 800 miles, repair shop says dealer had to have known about the issue because they tried to hide it. I bought my Buick Terraza on 03/20/2013, I bought the car with the mileage 103,883 the current mileage is 104,740 which I means I only drove 857 miles in a month. The car no longer is drive able as 04/24/2013, it currently resides in a repair shop called Go 2 Tires, I now have to pay for a new transmission, rear shock brakes, and a radiator, the repair shop said that the dealership tried to cover it up by putting fluids in the engine, and that the dealership new there was problem with the transmission and radiator. The cost of repairs is 3,791.56. I called the dealership to talk the the head manager ****** ****** and he was rude and refuse to fix the problem and refuse to hear me out. The cost of the car was 16,655.12, I put down 6,000.00 cash down for the car. This car is a handicap car, I bought the car to transport my disabled mother around to her appointment and etc. i now longer can drive her around.

Desired Settlement: I would like to the dealership to pay for the repair of the car or I want them to deduct the cost of the repair from the remaining balance of the car.

Business Response: Business' Initial Response
After speaking with the customer and offering her to void the balance owed to us on her puchase which is a thousand dollars, she wanted her full estimate of repair, that amount was over three thousand dollars, at that point she had mentioned that the van was already being repaired, i sent my used car recon manager to view and inspect the vehicle, one of the repair people from the shop went thru the vehicle with him and he actually drove the van, the van had a check engine light on but had not been repaired Yet the mechanic there recomended we repair the van, I called the customer to have the vehcle brought in to our service and she declined. The shop tech is a cousin or nephew per my recon managers conversations with him. THE ESTIMATE OF REPAIRS WERE UNFOUNDED. THANKS. ******

BBB's Final Determination: Business offered a resolution. Consumer did not pursue further with BBB and the matter was assumed to be resolved

10/24/2012 Problems with Product/Service | Read Complaint Details

Additional Notes

Complaint: Tires are too old. Several months after purchasing the car both front tires leak to varying degrees. I bought a 2008 Grand Prix GXP in February 2012. First problem I found was the tires were rotated. The GXP has wider tires on the front so they can't be rotated. Got that taken care of the next day. The reason for the complaint is the age of the tires. The left front developed a leak. Took it to Les Schwab Tires and they said they can't do anything with it, it's falling apart. Also from when the tires were rotated they are worn down on the inside edge from rubbing on the spring perch of the strut. The tires also are cracking between the tread. The build date is 3/08 so the tires were four years old when I purchased the car. I spoke with ****** and he said it's not covered due to tires being a wearable item but tires shouldn't be worn out a few months after I purchased the car. As far as tread they're still in good condition aside from the inside edge. In summary the tires are near the end of their useful life when I purchased the car and they either overlooked or caused the problem with the tire rotation.

Desired Settlement: Two new tires.

Business Response: Business' Initial Response
Company states that this vehicle was an as is purchase. If the consumer had come back within the first month or so, they would have taken his request into consideration. But after four or five months and 8,000 miles later, that is not a reasonable request. Consumer is not entitled to any assistance after that long of a time frame.

Consumer's Final Response
(The consumer indicated he/she DID NOT accept the response from the business.) If I hadn't caught the oversight of the tires being rotated what would have happened? Blowout. Shouldn't the tires hold air more than a few months after I purchase it? No attempt being made at customer satisfaction is surprising. Did the dealership rotate the tires or not catch that mistake? Who put the old tires on in the first place? The dealership or the rental company that owned it previously? Do they check the build date on the tires or say it's the right size so that's all that matters? If you purchased a vehicle and tires leak a few months later how would you feel? What would you do?

BBB's Final Determination: After reviewing the position of all parties, BBB determined that the business made a reasonable offer to resolve the complaint. However the consumer did not accept the offer.
