I got a rental car which they refused to pay for.and the damage they did to my car was not fixed

Desired Settlement: my car smogged my dash board fixed and rental car paid for

Business Response: Initial Business Response
The smog repairs were not performed, so of course it won't pass smog. The dashboard is something we're willing to help with. It's the instrument cluster shield that was accidentally broken. It's a small plastic piece that sits in front of the instrument clusters. We don't pay rental car expenses. We never have and never will. The transmission that was installed was a used transmission. It was purchased for the consumer and installed. It is under warranty from the company it was purchased from. It was defective and needed a fly wheel replaced. So, we had to request another used transmission and send the first one back. It took a while to get the second one, and that was a large part of the delay besides all the install and uninstall, and then installing again. It is because of this particular situation that we no longer order used ones, we only do new ones. It is unfortunate that this consumer was part of our learning experience with used transmissions. When we took the vehicle for test drive after completing the work, the instrument cluster stopped working. So, we checked it out. It was an electrical problem. We fixed that for free. In doing this the cluster shield was was broken. Again, we'll work with him on that. We did the bare minimum repairs, so until the other repairs are done there will still be issues, and he won't be able to pass smog.
