Problems with Product/Service
Read Complaint Details
Complaint: There was a noise that occurred every time that I started my car. I took it to Mr. Transmission of Greenville and they notified me that I would need to replace my clutch and flywheel, they said that the teeth on the flywheel were destroyed. I agreed and provided my own clutch and flywheel for them to install. I purchased a clutch kit online from a reputable company that had great reviews on various websites that I visited. *** of Mr. Transmission said that they would put in my provided clutch and flywheel, but would offer no warranty since it was not their product. I agreed because I knew that the product I purchased was a quality product. *** also told me that it would be possible that I would need to purchase a new starter and get it installed, but he would not know until he removed the old starter and looked at it. Once I spoke with him again he notified me that everything was installed and the old starter was put back into my car. He specifically told me that I did not need a new starter and that I could come pick up my car. 3 weeks later my car is making the same noise when I start it. I took the car back to *** at Mr. Transmission and he told me that he would have to charge me to look at the starter and the starter was likely the problem. I told him that I would not pay him to look at the same problem that I already paid him to look at. He took no responsibility for telling me not to replace the starter the first time and said that he doesn't see how he would be responsible for the situation because he did not install a starter on my car. I took my car to a different transmission shop and they told me that I would need to replace not only the starter, but also the flywheel , which I had just replaced a month earlier at Mr. Transmission. I find it to be completely ridiculous that *** and Mr. Transmission will take no responsibility for misinforming me about the starter and causing the almost $1000 that I spent to repair my car to be money that I essentially just gave to them for no reason.
Desired Settlement: I want to receive back all of the money that I gave to Mr. Transmission for the labor that they performed on my car. I am in a worse position now than I was in before I brought my car to them because I still have the same problem with my car, but I am almost $1,000 poorer. I also feel that they purposefully told me not to replace the starter because they knew that I would be back with a broken flywheel again and they could just tell me that they don't warranty parts they didn't provide.
Better Business Bureau:
Thank you for the offer to have my complaint hear by an Arbitrator, but at this time I do not wish to pursue this option. I do not currently have the time to prepare for a meeting with the arbitrator or to go through arbitration. Since we will not be pursuing the arbitration option, where do we go from here?
In Re: Complaint *******
The customer brought his ear to us on 1/17/13 with a complaint of a noise while cranking the engine. The customer stated that he recently had a new starter installed by another repair facility. He stated that when he contacted them about his problem, the other facility elected to refund his money rather than to try to resolve his complaint.
The customer authorized a labor charge of $159.50 for us to diagnose the source of the noise that he was experiencing. We determined that the old starter suffered a catastrophic failiue, and there were pieces of the old starter trapped within the clutch housing. There was also damage to the flywheel ring gear teeth. The transmission would have to be removed to correct the problem.
The customer was advised of our findings and We provided an estimate to make repairs. He declined the work per our estimate and with his car. As a courtesy to the customer, we agreed to give the customer a labor credit of $79.75 toward the repairs if he returned for the work. (This reflected half of the original diagnostic charge)
He returned on 1/22/13 after having obtained parts from another source, and asked us to install his parts. We agreed to install. his parts with the understanding that we could offer NO WARRANTY ON THE PARTS OR LABOR. He understood and authorized the charges of $369.19 (after discount)
At the time the work was performed, there were no obvious physical or functional problems with the starter that had been installed by the other facility. The was advised of this. The work was completed and the customers complaint was resolved.
The customer returned on 2/25/13 and stated that the car was again making a noise. As there was NO WARRANTY EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, we informed the customer that there would again be a labor charge to determine the cause of his noise complaint. He declincd and left with his car.
The fact that the original complaint had been resolved, and there was no problem for a month suggests that the work was properly performned, and that the subsequent failure the customer is claiming happened purely by chance, and that there was no malice on the part of Mr. Transmission or our representatives.
BBB's Final Determination: Business agreed to arbitrate the complaint but the consumer declined.
BBB Comments: Company agreed to arbitration for final resolution, but the consumer declined.
