Complaint: On 6/4/2013 I had a appointment to view a vehicle with ******* ****. At Crown Nissan. My appointment was around 430pm. I arrived and didn't know where to go. Then I seen the Inforamtion desk which there wasn't anyone there. So I waited,and waited. Then A MAn from the Service Department walked right past me. And I asked him Could he help me. He went and told ******* **** that I was there. So I went to have a seat. I looked at my clock I had waited 15mn past the appointment time. While waiting for a very long time the sales men walked past me 20 times. Didnt acknowledge that I was there at there. They didnt know if I was being helped and didnt offer to help, or say hey or didnt see if I needed to helped. On of the big guys thats in the big office waled right past me and stood at the door eating peanuts. While the other guy That came out the office next to his office and crossed over my foot and still didnt acknowlegde that I was there. So i contacted the manager and told him the situation. And he said he apologized and he said they must have knew that you were being helped I said NO they didnt and they guy that told ******* works in the service department. I said reguardless Noone acknowledge me didnt say hey how are you or anything. That was the worst customer service i had incountered in a long time. So I got my stuff and told the front desk girl that I was leaving.

Desired Settlement: Just wanted them to know that I was willing to buy the vehicle with cash. But because of poor customer service I will take my money somewhere else.

Additional Notes

Complaint: After having my car towed to Nissan because the maintenance worker named ***** told me that it had to be fixed at the dealership they ran diagnostics test told me that my battery was completely dead and had to be replaced for 130$. I decided to replace the battery myself. Went to get the car and it started right up so drove it to advanced auto. They ran a test on battery before replacing it and it measured 482 cca out of a rated 550 cca and was still a good battery.Therefore the dealership lied to me and almost got 130$ because they told me it was completely dead. Then I called Nissan and talked to the manager in the maintenance department and explained what happened. He told me that their guys had to print out their systems test and that he would call me back and let me know why I was told the battery was dead. I asked to also know why the car was working just fine now even though nothing had been replaced. I never raised my voice or insulted the manager in any way. I gave him my name and number and he was to give me a call back. Well needless to say I never heard back from them. I paid 149.04$ to have the car towed and diagnostic test done and I still have no idea what was wrong with the car in the first place.

Desired Settlement: I don't want a refund for the diagnostics test I just want an explanation as to why I was lied to and what was actually wrong with the vehicle.

Business Response: My service writer***** ***** has talked to her. we apologize she did not get a call back addressing her concerns immediatley. ***** has informed me he addressed all her concerns and if not please contact me****** ******** at ************.
