Complaint: On September 19, 2015, we hired Baja Limo services to help us with a birthday celebration with transportation from Yuba City to Old Sacramento and returning back home.As we started to leave, I asked the driver about the high pitch whistling. We had a time deadline so he said he would check it. The driver stated we were the very first people to ride in this 2015 Party bus as did the person who I made the reservations with.The driver was extremely nice and tried his best from what we could tell. when he dropped us off he assured me he would take a look at it as he was AWFUL. I suffer from migraines and I explained to him that whistle would not be good to listen all the way back.No conversation could be held without shouting over the whistle. Not a fun experience or even semi-relaxing for certain. The driver said he took the bus back to the shop and clearly their was a piece of trim/insulation missing and they would have to return the bus back to the maker. there was nothing he could do to fix it. I told him that this is just not acceptable, he said he understood and told us to contact the office.I contacted the office at 8:26 am Monday morning, as they are closed over the weekend to discuss the problem where I was told the driver lied, there is no problem and we were the 4th fare and no one has any idea about the whistle. I have 12 passengers and a driver who clearly know of the whistle that wasn't faint as we couldn't even hear the music over it. The driver apologized. I contacted the driver and repeated what the office stated and he said, that we all clearly knew their was a problem with the vehicle, we all heard it, he took it to the shop it was inspected and found to be faulty. I am shocked by the arrogant attitude of this business that used to be handled so well.
Desired Settlement: I am willing to pay the $300 that was paid charged to hold it but I am not willing to pay the balance for a vehicle that clearly was not luxurious as they claim on their website and was not up to the standards. I have used them for 4 years and NEVER had a problem before. The arrogant attitude of the gentleman who said he could assist me this morning completely discount the problems and even called t. I would also like an apology. I will also be disputing with the credit card company as well.
Business Response: As a company of principal we will not be held hostage to false exaggerated statements that damage our good name only to threaten us with internet slander or financial loss, we do not believe ford motor company nor tiffany coach would build a vehicle as terrible as she describes, Impeccable service in a 2016 Ford E-450 PARTY LOUNGE was rendered with no incidents therefor NO REFUND DUE Tell us why here...
I am rejecting this response because after several phone calls in which the business owner acknowledged there was a problem and that he has fixed it but feels more of a need to claim there was nothing wrong. There are twelve passengers for the trip that all can vouch there was a problem and the hostile attitude of this owner.. He also claimed it was because he was shocked there was a problem. Not true good business people find out what is wrong and fix it. This owner rather threaten and be aggressive. There is no accepting this offer. Also he has stated numerous times that he can't get any money from the manufacturer for the problem. Again, poorly run business.
We as a business always strive to
Consumer Response: I am rejecting this response because I am not slandering. A problem existed not with your drive but with your vehicle as it isn't supposed to have a high pitch whistling sound. Secondly I explained several times to the driver this was unacceptable who agreed and told me to call the office. I am not disputing to 300.00 deposit as I believe it was worth something but not the entire amount nor have I ever said I was disputing the entire amount. And all I asked was to be heard by this owner who has been aggressively hostile. I wanted the problem addressed which the owner claims he called the manufacturer who gave him a video to resolve the issue so clearly there was an issue. Something so simple for someone in hospitality industry really should have strive better to be of service. I have been up front from the beginning of about the issue and tried to address it properly. This business still failed on customer service.

Complaint: Planned to use Baja Limo service for a surprise b-day party. Planned 6 weeks in advance and pre paid the week of the event. The day before the event I received a phone call from Baja claiming that they needed to run my credit card for an additional $750.00 for incidentals. (which would fall off in 7 business days) This was never explained to me nor was it mentioned on the policy I signed. They should have disclosed this during the initial conversation.
Desired Settlement: I would like Baja to disclose this information to all customers when they agree to use the service. It should also be clearly listed on the front page of the reservation form that the customer signs.Its not fair to tell someone the day before service that now you need an additional $750.00 to hold for a week.
Baja Limo has a company policy in place that can easily be verified simply by calling and reserving a limousine.
Consumer Response: I am rejecting this response because: If you look at the date of the contract that Baja Limo attached you'll see that it is dated 6-14-2014, the day of the event which proves my point. Now look at the contract that I signed (see attached) dated 5-14-14 one month in advance, and you will see NO mention of an extra $750.00 to be charged to my card, even if on a temporary basis. They sprung this extra charge on me one day before the event.
Business Response: The following is our current company policy and procedures for all clients when making a reservation and receiving a confirmation.
I am rejecting this response because: I dont know why we keep going back and forth. I presented the document that I signed on 5-14 which was a month before the event. Any other document that Baja sends is irrelevant because it was never presented to me. (Unless they can provide a signed copy dated in May) I have stated my complaint and nothing has changed. This should be logged as a formal complaint as I have provided proof to back my claim. Actually Baja Limo has provided proof as well because the only thing they could produce with my signature that referenced the $750.00 deposit was dated 6-14-14, which was the day of the event. (I booked my event on 5-14-14) I'll attach it again though if it helps.
Consumer Response: I have provided proof that Baja Limo did not in fact inform me that my credit card would be charged an additional $750.00 until a day before the event. Baja has submitted a signed form (dated 6-14-14 the day of the event) and I have provided the copy I did in fact also sign dated 5-14-14 (a month before the event with no mention of the $750.00) I am not asking for a penny back from them. All I am asking is that a formal complaint is logged and that going forward Baja informs their customers of this charge at the time of booking. This is a reasonable request.

Complaint: This was the worst experience I had. I paid $378 for a limo for my sons senior prom on 4/12/2014. he was not picked up at the set time which was 2:45pm. After 2:55pm I called and was told that there was an accident and that there were no other drivers for my son. The accident per **** was on Howe and Fulton. If this was the case how would the driver still been on time if I stayed in Antelope, CA. The driver would have been late regardless. However, he informed me that they can have a driver at the photography site where my son and his friends were going to take pictures at 5:30pm. This meant I had to drive my son from Antelope to Citrus Heights to pick up his date , then from Citrus Heights, CA to downtown where he was taking pictures with the rest of his friends. The driver arrived at 5:30PM and my sons prom was at 6:00PM. I am so upset and thought that their customer service would return the amount to my card, but they have not. I was told by **** this morning they are charging me a transfer fee of $178.50.... this is crazy and I will never use their services again. He was very rude and asked me if I was a detective since I was asking questions and revealing holes in his story. My sons senior night was terrible and I wish they would just to the right thing.
Desired Settlement: I would like all my funds returned to me ASAP
Business Response: Company states that the consumer will not be charged anything.

Complaint: No final bill or Invoiced ever produced. Over charged $600. Claims puke in limo; nobody got sick inside the limo. I rented this limo on March 2nd 2013. I never received a final invoice. I contacted the company asking for a final bill on 3/3/13, 3/8/13, 3/13/13 and 3/14/13. On 3/13/13 it was discovered they finalized a total of $1006.50 on two different credit cards and three different charges. In the end, we were over charged $609 more than the $397.50 original quote that was supposed to include tip and tax. Upon calling to inquire about the charges, **** claimed there was puke in the limo, when nobody ever got sick "inside the limo". **** told my soon to be husband that they had to take off the door and clean the puke. **** explained that they do not make any money when this happens and all the work was done by a third party. When we asked for a picture and a third party invoice from the "biohazard" company they claim to hire, they sent us a blurry cell phone picture, which does not even look like puke and we believe the picture was taken the day we requested it and does not represent how we left the limo. We can forward you a copy of this picture. We asked for a better picture and again for the invoice and **** began yelling at my fiancé telling him that they have all there ducks in a row, we signed a contract with them and we need to do what we need to do. He would not provide us any legitimate pictures or an invoice to specifying the charges. Nobody got sick inside the limo, so whatever cleaning charges are bogus. We believe they are making this claim to rip us off and they probably make a large part of their money doing so. After this happened, we began researching their company more and ran across other news story on them where another couple claims Baja did the same thing to them. Obviously, they are still ripping consumers off and the first report did not change their business practice at all. We plan on filing a dispute with our credit card company, but their bogus charges are tying up my credit card a week before my wedding and honeymoon which will impact the things that we can do. I would encourage you to warn consumers about their poor business practices.
Desired Settlement: I want $609 returned to my credit cards and agree to the $397.50 charge.
