Complaint: I brought my Subaru Outback year 2000, for a diagnosis to the Subaru shop in Shingle Springs, California, on Friday June 27 2014 by appointment.I had previously both catalytic converters replaced due to advice from another shop, they were aftermarket, due to the price difference. It is an old car, running well. The replacement was done by **** ******* *******, a muffler and exhaust specialist in my town.However, after having the "check engine" light reset by ****** ********** in Pollock Pines, it went back on shortly after.Therefore I brought the car now to Subaru in Shingle Springs for a diagnostic, hoping they would find a hidden problem.I paid them $112.00 for that service. They told mr by word and in writing that, Quote: .."Found aftermarket catalytic converters & sensors, bank one sensor harness too tight & will not plug in properly recommend remedy that issue before further checking." UnquoteI believed their story and went back to the installer of the Cat converters. As he put the car on the high ramp, he and I had an immediate look and found indeed the cable dangling free with the plug.He was quickly able to plug it back in with plenty of loose cable, so loose, that he attached the cable to a support so it would not swing freely.When I told this to Subaru, a Mr. ***** ************, he did not believe me, instead he insisted what his technician told him was correct. I had to assume they probably did not even bother to try to plug the cable back in. Additionally he accused me of "probably monkeying with the harness so it is now longer" in his words, after it came back from Subaru.I told him that his story was wrong and he should have more respect for his customers instead of accusing me, he said I insulted him because I said his worker was lying, he does not care and hung up. I then called the supervisor, but apparently they follow their own blue code in terms of customer treatment, meaning, I got exactly the same feedback and was cut off.The owner Bob did the same. What can I do?
Desired Settlement: I would like for Subaru to refund me the money I paid them plus an amount for driving there and back and for causing me such distress in dealing with their rudeness and lack of accountability.They just lost a customer.
On 6-26-14, Mr. ********* *********** brought his 2000 Subaru, Outback to our dealership for diagnosis due to the check engine light being on. Mr. *********** had previously taken the vehicle to 2 other independent shops for catalytic converter replacement and repairs due to the check engine light being on. We found Mr. ***********'s vehicle to have after mark catalytic converters install on it. The bank 1 sensor on the after-market catalytic converter is located in a different location from a factory catalytic convertor making the harness too short to install properly. This vehicle was checked out and diagnosed by our shop foreman who is a Subaru Master Technician and has more than 20 years of factory experience. The customer was informed of our findings and he declined further diagnosis or repairs. Mr. *********** was only charge the minimum diagnosis charge.

Complaint: I responed to an ad in the Sacramento Bee for a 4x4 4 door Nissan truck listed for $18,988. When I arrived I was shown a little 2 door, 4x2, truck. I responded to an ad in the Sacramento Bee published on October 26, 2013 for a 2013 Nissan Frontier four door 4x4 truck for $18,988. I called prior to coming in and was told by **** that the truck was available. When I arrived the stock numbers in the ad did not match the advertised truck and I was told that they would not honor the price. The as also says in yellow that the truck has air conditioning and is an automatic. The trucks I was shown were manuals. They then attempted to up sell me and showed me the actual truck I came to see, but offered it to me at a much higher price. I then asked if I could see another car that was advertised and was told it was already sold. Everything they offered in the ad was a bait and switch. I have a copy of the ad.
Desired Settlement: I want the truck pictured in the ad for the advertised price of $18,988. I have financing already and would like to get it ASAP.
