Complaint Detail(s)

9/4/2014 Problems with Product/Service | Read Complaint Details

Additional Notes

Complaint: I took my car to KC Automotive Specialist four times. I did not get over fives miles down the road two times before the car cut off. I took the car back and each time I was charge over $200.00. One time I was charged over n$700.00 the first time. The 4th time I did make it home, however, I went less than 30 miles from my house and the car began to run hot and cut off.

Desired Settlement: I really just want them to fix the car. I think I have been charged enough for the services I have received.

Business Response: As I have explained to the customer that the car has several issues with the wiring harness on the vehicle. She wanted me to try to repair it the best that I could. I tried several times to but the fact is the car needs a complete wiring harness to resolve the issue and none are available. I have worked on this car for cutting off problem only. If the car is running hot than that is a new concern and maybe why it cut off at this time. Thanks***** *****

BBB's Final Determination: Business offered a resolution. Consumer did not pursue further with BBB and the matter was assumed to be resolved

BBB Comments: Assumed Resolved  - Company resolved the complaint issues. The consumer failed to acknowledge acceptance to the BBB.

Additional Notes

Complaint: Car had new damage when in the possession of K C Automotive, noticed at pick up of the vehicle. Rep for Business signed off on the damage and agreed to have take care of it. Upon arrival the next business day, spoke to a different rep and was told that they were not taking care of the issues(damage)and too get my **** *** of the property. Local police were called by myself to file a report, they showed up and asked me to leave The property and recommended I file a complaint with local Courts.

Desired Settlement: Just want it made right!! I trusted in them to take care of my car and they had not a care in the world for the condition of my vehicle.

Business Response:

My counter guy looked at the car and explained to him to bring it back the next day because I was not here. He only signed the invoice as of the customer complaining about where the scratches were at. The damage on the hood had touch up paint in it where it was apparently already damaged before. The damage he is complaining about did not happen in my shop I told the gentleman the hose marks on the Left front fender I would take care of but the other he was complaining about was not anywhere where we had touched he vehicle in any way. He got upset and I did too. I told him he can get his *** off of my property than that I was not going to be belittled and forced to fix anything that did not happen in my care. He called the law and they asked him to leave. The only parts on the car that is my responsibility is on the Left front fender. not the top off the hood or something on the drivers door. We did tow his car from the payless parking lot at the front door. He came to us and we towed it. It could had been damaged when he left it there. I tried to reason with him but could not. I should not of lost my temper but I am tired of **** ***** trying to get something for nothing.
