Additional Notes

Complaint: on 02-03-2015 I had my jeep in for recalls I asked service about my heater only working ( blowing heat ) when vehicle idles and driving down the road it blows cold , I was told by service it needed to have a complete flush , he said it was a common problem with jeep liberty , so I let them have it for the whole day and when I picked it up $158.95 it was the same !! no heat going down the road ? I talked to service and he said I just asked for a coolant flush ? we had a argument and I spoke to the owner , he promised to loo into things since they didn't fix it and were saying I just asked for a coolant flush and said nothing about heat ?anyways I couldn't get vehicle back till 02-26-2015 less than 200 miles later and was told I need a new heater core ? $1267.78 !! if my heater core was plugged how did they do a system flush ??eater cores don't plug in less than 200 miles ( and I never leaked )I took it to another shop a few miles away and they were able to do a proper system flush !! for $75 and now my heat works all the time !! ps the only reason I had shults do the coolant flush is because the advisor I talked to assured me it would fix my problem and them being a jeep dealer they should know how to fix jeep problems ?

Desired Settlement: I should be refunded my money for a incomplete coolant flush

Business Response:

Mr ******** asked for a cooling system back flush we suggested a complete
system flush and he agreed to that  I spoke with the technician who did the work
he told me he did not notice any excessive residue or back pressure during the
flush When Mr ******** called me I agreed to further diagnose the vehicle at
no charge We had a second technician took at the Jeep and he said the inlet hose
was hot and ths outlet was cold indicating a bad heater core and we recommended
a new one Mr ******** declined The original flush included an additive to clean
the system and both of my techs agreed that it is possibte that a second flush may
have cleared the system but the blockage could come back.

In the interest of goodwill I would be willing to reimburse Mr ******** for the $75
he spent at the other shop if he provides me a receipt from that shop.

If i can be of further assistance please feel free to contact me.

Consumer Response:

as stated I was told a complete flush would fix my problem ( service mang ) and after paying $150 and driving it 5 miles it was obvious it was not fixed that is when I called service and was not treated very nice , so I called the owner and as stated it was not fixed again ( 25 mile drive each way ! now over 100 miles ) after 2nd visit was told I needed to spend $1400 that is why I took kit to a second garage , who had nothing good to say about ed shults jeep , anyways I did a PROPER  flush ( less than 10 miles from jeep garage ) I paid him and I think I should get a full refund as I had my jeep to them twice , leaving it all day each time and not having the problem fixed either time ? thank god I didn't spend the $1400 for a heater core that I didn't need

 ps to this day the jeep is STILL blowing heat


**** ********

Business Response:

If Mr ******** sends me a complete copy of the receipt for the repair
at the other garage that fixed his Jeep I will refund the $150 he spent with us.

Additional Notes

Complaint: I traded the vehicle in May of 2014 that I had purchased from Ed Shults of Warren in July 2011. I had purchased an extended warranty from the dealer through the ********* Re-Insurance. I have contacted the dealership 4 times in the past six months (it is now November 2014) in regards to them contacting ********* and canceling this policy (which is still in effect.) Each time I call they state that they will call ********* and cancel this policy, but they have not. I have contacted ********* myself, and confirmed that the policy is still in effect, but they are unable to cancel as this is a contract through the dealership.

Desired Settlement: I would like a refund of my extended warranty cost, $1995. When the vehicle was owned we did not have any claims, and since the dealer is refusing to contact *********, I would like a full refund.

Business Response:

I spoke with Mr. ****** the same day he made this complaint and had his refund issued immediately. The check was mailed the same day. I apologized for our staff somehow letting this full through the cracks. We generally have refunds issued within a month. Both my Assistant Office Manager and one of my Business Managers somehow overlooked this paperwork. I am in the process of reviewing our refund request process, specifically when a customer calls in rather than notifying us by mail.

Mr. ****** received a full refund from the date of cancellation and I assured him if he has any concerns in the future he can contact me directly.

If I can be of further assistance please feel free to contact me.
