Additional Notes

Complaint: I would like to report this issue I'm still having in my car after it's been repaired three ( 3 )different times at the same transmission shop. My car 2003 ***** *** was worked on, invoice dated 11/26/2012 for replacing a remanufactured Transmission by company called West Coast Transmission for the total cost of labor and parts of $3277.60. With in a month I was having a shudder vibration sound coming from transmission. I took my car back to the shop on, invoice dated 12/14/12 to have them diagnose the problem while it was still under warranty. Well, they said they couldn't find anything with the transmission and my car most likely have spark plugs and wires issues. They apparently documented on the invoice that it was a misfire. I'm not a professional mechanic but I do work on cars and have that much of sense and knowledge to tell if it's a misfire. Let me highlight this, my car was tuned up with spark plug and wires 6 months prior to taking it to the shop invoice dated 11/26/2012. So just to get me a piece of mind I took my car back to my mechanic to have it diagnose it if it's really a misfire. He chuckled and said he could hear it on idle if it was misfiring. But he diagnosed it anyway and couldn't find anything wrong with my engine or any of ignition problems what the transmission shop described. He clearly documented in the invoice that it wasn't a misfire at all. But again I asked him to replace new spark plugs and wires anyway which he did at the cost of $226.37 invoice dated 12/22/12. So I took my car back to West Coast Transmission and showed them my mechanic's invoice he worked on that it wasn't a misfire. Their response was oh. really it was oh. So one of their technician test drove it while i was waiting there. He couldn't find any issues but they told me just drive the car there's nothing wrong with it. So unfortunately, I drove my car home with devastation and disappointment. -CONTINUED ON ADDITIONAL DETAILS WITH WORD ATTACHMENT!

Desired Settlement: I kindly request to have my vehicle fixed ( properly ) this time with zero cost and along with extended warranty since it wasn't fixed right at the first time or the second time nor the third time . If they cannot come my agreement then I would like to get total refund from West Coast Transmission. There were two separate invoices, one in amount of $3277.60 and the other one is $500.00. So the total comes to $3777.60 all together. -CONTINUED ON ADDITIONAL DETAILS WITH WORD ATTACHMENT!

Additional Notes

Complaint: On 3/14/14,I went to West Coast on Roseville rd. in Sacramento, I brought my Buick,Rendezvous there to have the transmission replaced. The total cost was $1800, the guy who handles this service, I forget his name. He told me he wouldn't fix or touch the vehicle until I gave him at least $800 down towards the total cost. I gave him $500 on 3/14/14. At the time of signing, he didn't inform my husband and I, that if the vehicle is there for a certain amount of time, while awaiting more payments, that he would fix it, and have it towed or sell to a yard, without my consent and full payment or at least the $800 down. The day my husband went there to give the $300 to make it a total of $800 so the guy could at least start on the car, they told him that the car was no longer there, and that the guy fixed it and towed it to a yard. They said, they tried calling my husband, and that his phone was disconnected. I can prove his phone was not disconnected in that period of time. I almost lost my job, due to no transportation, it caused me a lot of hardship. We tried calling them a few times, and would not give us any clear answers, the operator would only take my messages, and promised to get a call back and never did. I gave up for a while before doing something about this issue because I had to come up with another car so I can keep my job, and had very little time to take actions sooner. I don't know what else to do about this issue.

Desired Settlement: I would either want my vehicle back, or $1500, That would include the price of the vehicle and the down payment I never got back.

Business Response:

To Whom It May Concern,
This customer disappeared for 3 months after dropping his vehicle off. We could not get ahold of him at all during the 3 month period. Finally, we had the vehicle towed, handing it off to a tow company thinking it was abandoned.
According to tow company, come to find out, the previous owner of the vehicle, they were still on the title. ******* never went to *** and put title in his name. Previous owner had to pay tow impound and yard storage fee’s.
We have since spoken to *******, came to an agreement, and he now has possession of his vehicle back with no further storage fee’s or ramifications. This matter has been settled.

Consumer Response:  
Better Business Bureau:

I have reviewed the response made by the business in reference to my concern, this resolution was unsatisfactory, but will let it go this time.
