Problems with Product/Service
Read Complaint Details
Complaint: I'm in the Military and get my tires changed before every PCS move. I had my tires changed at this establishment on MAY 12 2014 (estimation). My vehicle has aftermarket wheel and the lugs are behind a plastic plate. The only purpose to mess with the plate is to remove the tire. Well a week after getting my tires changed I took my truck to a car wash and when I sprayed the cap it began to wiggle off. I never attempted to confront the business because I moved and am now in TX. I mentioned to an employee of the damage and informed them that my insurance company will be contacting them. The first thing of course was denial, the associate stated we tighten those by hand. when the only way the cover would've been cracked was by over torquing the screw on a plastic plate.
Desired Settlement: I'm asking them to replace the cover for the aftermarket wheel.
Business Response: Initial Business Response /* (1000, 5, 2014/10/16) */ This customer contacted the store on October 13, 2014 and spoke with Service Department Manager. The customer explained to the service manager that the cap was broken. We offered to replace the cap as we have many vendors that have current and discontinued designs available. The customer stated that he replaced all his wheels and caps and that his insurance company will be contacting us for payment. We worked on the vehicle on May 12, 2014 - notes on the work order were that he was moving in 1 month and to please provide thorough inspection, we also provided him with a loaner car at that time. The customer did not return after noticing the issue (1 week) - we would have been happy to replace the center cap. No denial here. Sometimes plastic can crack no matter how careful a person is in reassembling an item like this. We strive to take exceptional care of vehicles for our customers and want to meet every expectation- should there be an issue - we need to know in order to address it. If this customer would accept it - I am willing to reimburse him for the cost of (1) used center cap - I will authorize a replacement cost of $25.00. This is basically what would have been done had we been given an opportunity to clear up this issue in a timely manner. Resolving this issue now is no different. Please clearly note that this was this resolution was offered on October 13, 2014 and were told that his insurance company would call us and seek reimbursement for his expenses. Initial Consumer Rebuttal /* (3000, 7, 2014/10/25) */ (The consumer indicated he/she DID NOT accept the response from the business.) First the response from the business is inaccurate. I informed them that I was going to try to go through my insurance company to have them cover damages. I don't have new wheels/ rims on my truck. I'm trying to rectify the safety issue of driving around with wheel lugs exposed due to this business damaging/vandalizing my vehicle.I have after market rims and to get a cover that the gentlemen cracked/vandalized cost more than $25. If i was to break something on a person's vehicle just because it's used and convenient to say I will pay a price of $25 should not be the answer. If they can replace the cap personally and ship it to me for only $25 dollars I would agree but they will not be able to accomplish this task. The after market will is a FORTE chrome plated wheel that is no longer in production which makes it difficult to replace. So if the business can replace the cap and for even $1 replace the cap that was broken I would be satisfied but I highly doubt that's possible.the wheel model is Forte F43 Revenge 20". Final Business Response /* (4000, 11, 2014/10/27) */ Today the customer contacted the store inquiring about warranty coverage for products that he purchased. I obliged him with the information requested. I asked him if he received a response from the BBB regarding his complaint. Yes indicated that he did. I asked if the resolution was satisfactory. He indicated NO. He said that he never said the things on the phone about his insurance company to us and that he just didn't have time to let us look at the truck after we worked on it. I have offered to compensate him for a center cap at $25.00 - I am not going to source a cap for him and send it to Texas or allow him to send me a picture of the cap and find him one to send him. He has found the product he needs on **** and can buy it. I will send him a check for $25.00 as soon as an agreement is made that this is acceptable for a used cap that may have been broken when the vehicle was serviced at my facility. I am willing to compensate this customer and accept reasonable responsibility. Please request that the customer not contact this store directly regarding this matter as the resolution of this complaint lies fully with this process and the BBB. I am awaiting resolution of this matter and hope to hear from BBB soon. Thank you, ***** *****
