Complaint: Wife wife brought our van in for an oil change and came home with an oil leak and the splash shield not reinstalled properly. On September 16th my wife took our Honda Oddessy into Shingle Springs Honda for an oil change. After Shingle Springs Honda finished the oil change my wife drove home 4 miles. When she got home I notice a noise and looked under our van to see where the noise was coming from. I notice the front part of the splash shield was haggling down but the rear was still attached by both tabs. I took the service receipt out and called the Honda service department a few minutes after and spoke to **** ***** She asked me to bring the van back in so they could take a look at it. I told her the splash guard already looked scratched up and in some places even the plastic was melted. She said if there were any parts needed to make the repair if they didn't have them in stock they would order them and make the repair later. I told her I had a busy week and wouldn't be able to bring the van back until next week but would tape the part up until my wife or i could bring it back to be looked at. On my way home from work september 18th around 2:30 pm i stopped by their shop and asked if the service department could take a quick look but was told there was at least an hour wait maybe longer. I was asked to set an appointment if i didnt want to wait next time. My wife call and set an appointment for september 25th at 1pm. On the 25th she took it back and after waiting more than an hour she was told by the service writer **** **** that the van had been inspected and it was there feelings that the bump on the front right side of our van two years earlier was the cause of the splash shield clips popping apart and that they would not take responsibility for it and recommended she by a new one for $200. They also claimed that now we had an oil leak which was not there just days before. They said that they had used zip ties to hold the part in its place. My wife was so upset that we decided that we would wait a day and call the service manager. On September 26th at 3pm I call back and asked to speak with the the manager *** to discuss the new damage to our van and how it happened. He took my call and I explained what had happened over the past few weeks. *** looked over the service records and read the notes about the cause being from a small bump on our right side bumper that took place years ago and agreed with me that there was not way that could have caused this but went on to say that people come in all the time trying to pull a fast one over on their service department and that he sees splash shields all over town hanging down from all the low driveways and parking lot entrances "like food for less". He went on to say they would not fix it. After our call I contacted who I was told the owner was, "****" but received a return call from a Dave. I told him i was expecting a call from Gray but he said he was never there. He don't give me but a minute to talk and said he spoke with his staff and they would not fix it. I asked that he think about it and get back to me but he assured me there would be no thinking and added one more comment "we don't take the splash shield off on any cars to do an oil change". After our call i spoke with two different shops and both confirmed that he's comments about not removing the shield was not entirely true. They said that some cars you cant get to the filter without removing it and if the tec is under pressure to work quickly its the fastest way to find the oil filter and remove it. With our van both shops i spoke with said they would only remove the front screws or tabs but would reattach them after the filter was replaced. We want for Shingle Springs Honda to step up and do the right thing by ordering a new splash shield and check to see if the new oil leak is caused from our recent service.
Desired Settlement: We would like to have the splash shield replace with a new Honda part, the oil leak looked at by third party(we r will to pay for the inspection) to make sure it was not do to the work they did and if it they did cause it that they would fix it too. We would also like for them to pay for our next oil change at a Honda dealer of our choice for our the stress and time this has cost us.
