Complaint: We bought a used 2011 Nissan Sentra SR and we paid in cash 14k plus but a couple days later the car died on me, I brought the car and they kept the car for 2 days and "fix" the car but next day after I picked the car up, it started doing the same. Today we are bringing the car back to eMotors west and they are being so rude, Carl the sales person was really rude and barely talked to us. I would like to know how can we get this issue fix and I also want reimburse for the last rental I had cause the first time I paid for it...
Desired Settlement: I need to get my money refund for the entire transaction or give me credit for a different car
Customer brought in vehicle with an intermittent problem that was difficult to duplicate. Needs to be noted that it was purchased without a warranty and we told them to bring it in so we could look at any issues since it was a recent purchase. We could not get the vehicle to duplicate the problem. For a second opinion, we took it to the Nissan dealer. They also could not get any check engine lights or codes to come up. They did recommend replacement of one coil, which we paid for at zero cost to the customer. They apparently had the same issue with the vehicle and we asked them to again drop it off for a look. We again could not duplicate and sent it back to the Nissan dealer to again verify. Nissan reset the computer and we asked Nissan to drive the vehicle various times over a couple of days to make sure all was well. After getting it back, we also did both cold start and warm starts and drove in the vehicle over 2 to 3 days trying to make absolutely sure it was fixed. This by the way, was done while the customer was in a rental vehicle at our expense. Remember, the vehicle was pre-owned and purchased without a warranty, but we still covered ALL costs and a rental car expense for the customer both times. I have no concept of how that was rude. We are sorry they were inconvenienced, but certainly went above and beyond a normal dealer response to handle their concerns. Customer is back in their vehicle and both the Nissan dealer and our service department state the vehicle operates correctly. In a perfect world, every car works perfectly and there are never issues. Since we are dealing with cars, with electronics and mechanical components that are not always easy to diagnose, things don’t always go perfectly. We did our best to handle them promptly and with concern for both their time and inconvenience by getting a second opinion and putting them in a rental vehicle at NO COST to them. We certainly try to do more and be better than others dealers, new and used, but there is obviously no way to please everyone. To be clear, all of our expenses, rental cars and money spent at Nissan for a second opinion was at ZERO cost to the customer on a pre-owned vehicle purchased without a warranty. We are very comfortable with how this customer was handled both during the transaction and when they notified us about their concern.

Complaint: Signed contract for 2005 Honda Pilot. Did not allow for a final test drive per the due bill terms & have not repaired issues per warranty terms. Signed a contract for a 2005 Honda Pilot on 9/26/12. Part of due bill terms was an approval of a final test drive, Emotorswest did not allow me to accept and perform the final test drive. Had rough running and belt squealing noises. We have brought the vehicle in a total of (6) times for repair. Vehicle is still not repaired. Have several calls and emails into sales staff and owner. No one has responded. Full details are outlined in (3) page letter which I have sent to Emotorswest which I can send to BBB.
Desired Settlement: Would like to take the vehicle to a Honda Dealer service department for proper repairs at expense of Emotorswest. We feel as though Emotorswest have exceeded the reasonable number of attempts to repair the vehicle. Again, have received no response from Emotorswest. Have also contacted BAR because I have never received an invoice for any supposed work performed.
