Complaint: Dealership doing special warranty work on my car provided me a LOANER as a promise vehicle return was not ready when I came into town, 500 miles away to retrieve it. I was given a brand new VW beetle, which I did not want but took, as signed a LOANER agreement. Over 3 months later when they were still working on my car, the bettle's temp tag and registration sticker expired making the car undrivable even though I needed it for work. I emailed several times asking them to send the tag and sticker and my requests were completely ignored. They instead told me they wanted to come get the car. I told them I did not want anyone driving my car 500 miles when complete to swap. This went back and forth for several more months until I left the country, moved the care from secured parking (to keep it off the road with expired tags and sticker to avoiding ticketing, booting, and towing) to the street (parked illegally but I had no choice) and certified mail registered receipt sent their keys back and told them to pick up the car before impoundment. I later found out, when I supposedly the car was hit while parked, rendering it undriveable, and that it caused them all kinds of downstream issues, towing, inconvenience, expense. When I returned from the country 3-4 months later, I went to pick up my car and was provided a non-itemized invoice with no detail for over $3,000, no explanation nothing other than for the LOANER which they are now calling a rental. I requested itemized detail on 1 occasion in person, and was refused, on 3 more occasions to the GM via email, and then again a few months later to a Service Manager for a total of 5 times. To date, I have not heard a single word but instead have received 3 or 4 more bills where the amount doubles from the original several times over. They continue to hold my car for ransom. It is behind lock and key with a supposed dead battery where I cannot retrieve it.
Desired Settlement: Stop with the ridiculous billing, allow me to get my car back at no charge since this was warranty work and take up the issue with warranty who they say would not pay for the LOANER, and at the very least, provide me with reasonable, suitable, and ample detail for what they are trying to charge me.
This reply is in response to the complaint filed with your office by ***** ******* against Day Apollo VW-Subaru in Moon Township, PA. I’ve read the entire complaint filed by Ms. ******* against Day Apollo and I have first-hand knowledge about this incident as I’ve tried, without success, to reach an amicable solution to settle this disputed balance that Ms. ******* still owes Day Apollo.
To summarize, Ms. ******* purchased this vehicle in Florida. Unfortunately, this vehicle had water damage, and she first took it to ****** ** ** ******** ** for repairs. After not being satisfied with their service, she then brought her vehicle to Day Apollo and, with her authorization and with the guidance of VW of America, we completely gutted the interior of her vehicle. Parts and labor alone totaled almost $7000, plus she accumulated another $6,000 in rental charges.
After the repairs were completed, Ms. ******* stated that she was not satisfied with the repairs we completed and she refused to pick-up her vehicle. VW of America ultimately agreed to reimburse Day Apollo a total of $10,000 of the $13,000 we had amassed in expenses. The remaining $3,000 that still sits on our receivables schedule is a valid expense for the other half of her rental fees.
Ms. ******* took our rental car to New Jersey and refused to return it for months. After we finally retrieved our vehicle, we had to have it towed to a VW dealership in New Jersey because the vehicle was damaged and could not be driven (photo attached.) On two separate occasions, we sent a team of men to retrieve the vehicle and both times she blew us off.
***** ******* with VW of America has a full case history with Ms. ******* that would fully substantiate this summary. I do understand that Ms. ******* works for **** and her work forces her to travel in and out of the country quite frequently; however, Day Apollo is entitled to collect the outstanding $3,000 balance for the rental expense that she has amassed. In fact, my hope is that this response will help to bring a closure to this unfortunate circumstance; however, we are fully prepared to proceed with the process of claiming the vehicle as abandoned if Ms. ******* does not satisfy this outstanding balance by the end of October. She should know that her vehicle is still secure in a storage lot within close proximity to Day Apollo.
I would hope that this explanation satisfactorily addresses all concerns. If this issue requires any further conversation, I can be reached throughout the day at ###-###-####.
Day Apollo VW-Subaru
sorry, i am not able to accept the response of the dealership because it is not the requested documentation. i don't need any documentation about the yellow beetle loaner because that's not what i was told by the GM and the service desk rep i was being charged for (unless they are changing their story)
This reply is in response to the additional matter filed with your office by ***** ******* against Day Apollo VW-Subaru in Moon Township, PA.
To be clear, the balance of the service bill that we are asking Ms. ******* to pay has
nothing to do with the warranty dollars that VW of America reimbursed Day Apollo for
completing the repairs to her vehicle. In fact, the financial details of that reimbursement
are a confidential matter between Day Apollo and VW.
The $3000 bill that is currently outstanding represents a discounted rental bill that
Ms. ******* originally agreed to pay Day Apollo for renting a vehicle while her car was
being repaired. The total rental bill was originally $6678 and VW agreed to pay half of
that total as a courtesy goodwill adjustment for Ms. *******. A copy of the repair order
which details this amount is attached for your records. I was assured by our Service
Manager at that time, ***** *****, that this same copy was mailed to Ms. ******* for her
records. We’re only asking for Ms. ******* to reimburse us for the rental that she
requested – nothing more!
Hopefully this additional data sufficiently addresses Ms. ********* concerns about the details specific to her $3000 outstanding balance. If this matter still requires any further conversation, I can be reached throughout the day at ###-###-####.
Mr ****** has claimed I am/was in receipt of the attached is mistaken. What I do
have is at least 6 generic invoices, at least 1 with an amount that appears to be doubled the initial ~~3K amountt--that looks nothing like the attached
. I have never seen it to date. Nevertheless I do not consider it a sufficient and proof of onus and
charges or itemization.
NO person in their right mind would even considering paying a bill with no itemization, details, line items, dates, contracts, and the like. I have tried to have this dialogue face to face in March with the dealership Service Director/Manager (I don't know who that is because over time, there have been numerous personnel changes in my service contacts) when I came in, I was told he was not available. So I then asked to speak to someone in charge and was directed to the General Manager Mr ******, who knew of the situation but told me he did not have the details and would forward them and never did--until now, though sparingly. This is the most detail I have received to date and is still not sufficient to support the charges.
Furthermore, the following is a false claim. "Ms. ******* originally agreed to pay Day Apollo for renting a vehicle while her car was being repaired."
At no time was I renting a car from the dealership, nor thought I was renting a car from the dealership, and would never have agreed to pay to drive a loaner car from the gate--especially in light of paying for plane ticket to come retrieve my supposedly (but not) ready (or fixed) car. I was provided a courtesy loaner because when I was told my car was finished and ready, I flew into town to specifically to retrieve it, but when I got there to drive it to my project/job based temporary home, I was told that I had received misinformation and that not only was it not ready but that it would not be ready anytime in the near future. The dealership gave me a courtesy loaner, then had my car in for service for the next three months.
I can assure you that I never agree to pay for a loaner, much less 3+ months of a loaner, much less anything potentially above and beyond 3+ months. Furthermore, who in their right mind would keep a car they were knowingly paying for that was not driveable due to expired plates and tags from August 2012. That doesn't make ANY sense.
It is my contention, in part, the dealership courtesy loaned me a car for the inconvenience they caused, and since it took them 3+ months to properly service my vehicle, perhaps not realizing it would take that long (note they never asked me to bring the loaner back while my car was in service) then discovered that warranty was not (ever) going to cover loaner reimbursement charges and re-assessed the charge-back from warranty to me, the customer because warranty refused to pay for something they didn't get authorized.
I am now asking that in addition to the proper and non confidential documentation regarding the charges and reimbursements between the dealership and warranty requested in the previous email, the dealership to also provide a signed contract between us outlining and detailing pre-established daily/monthly charges for said "rental" wherein I "agreed" to pay and in what amount--in the same fashion a typical rental contract would indicate line item daily/monthly charges, refuel costs, declination of coverage, etc and the like.
BBB's Final Determination: After reviewing the position of all parties, BBB determined that the business made a reasonable effort to address the complaint. However the consumer remains dissatisfied.
