Additional Notes

Complaint: I had a 2005 Chevy Cavalier that had a broken ignition lock and would not turn to start the car. It was taken to Jim Crivilli Chevrolet in Mckees Rocks. The service attendant said the lock cylinder could not be removed and the entire steering column had to be replaced. He recommended that we replace it with a used column to save money. So we did that. I went to pick It up and he informed me that the lock cylinder on the used one was bad and would probably break and should be replaced. After paying $491.41 to have the column with a working ignition switch put in the car I was back to where I started. He said I would have to pay another $300.00 to have the lock cylinder replaced! I informed him that I had paid for a used column that was to be in complete working order that included a working ignition switch. I told him Even salvage yard parts are supposed to in full working order! He could have cared less That was his advice in the first place. He told me that's the chance you take when putting used parts in. I got in the car and began driving home and tried the turn signals and horn neither one worked! I took it back and told him about it. He told me to bring it back Monday. I took the car home and parked it. His attitude about charging me for a switch that should have worked on the replacement was its a chance you take. Even used parts are supposed to be in working order, that is what I expexted. The work done on this car was unprofessional and sloppy! I asked him when you put something in don't you check to make sure everything is working like the horn and turn signals? He said NO! This is nothing but a ripoff. I should not have to pay anything additional for the switch that should have been in working order with the new column. Why would a reputable dealers shop install a part they knew was defective and expect me to pay even more! . Required Field

Desired Settlement: I want the vehicle repaired to operating conditions without any addition cost to me! The car has more problems now then when it was taken in. The work done on the car was not correct and done sloppy The part I paid for was not in proper working condition as I expected!.
