Complaint: I desired to have a brake line repaired shown on the complaint form, which never took place. On 9/10/2013 my vehicle was transported by tow truck from my home to AAMCO for a brake line leak, parking brake cables replaced, speedometer repair and possible battery replacement. On 9/12/2013 the vehicle was delivered to me saying all repairs have been made. Without looking at the vehicle i drove it around for about two or three days and parked it. On 9/19/13 I intended on driving the vehicle to Port Arthur, TX for a test at Lamar. While checking my fluids i noticed the brake fluid was almost empty or empty, without thinking i drove the vehicle back to AAMCO to address the problem. The technician came back and said the fluid was low and filled it. I brought to the attention of the owner the fact that a proper inspection was not conducted. When the vehicle was received a proper inspection should have caught the low brake fluid in the first place. In my opinion i think the tech didn't check the fluid at all, plus they completely overlooked the fact my first statement was the brake line issue. I drove an unsafe vehicle around and didn't know it. After the fluid was put in the vehicle i pressed the brake pedal 15 times to let the fluid circulate and behold fluid started shooting out of the line. How the brakes was working before that point still baffles me, by gods grace they didn't fail and cause me to wreck the vehicle. The vehicle is 91 ford mustang the invoice number is XXXXXX of AAMCO. As a medically retired soldier of 15 and half years i never seen this type of neglect. The owner could have offered to fix the vehicle for free or discounted price. I'm partially to blame for not doing my due diligence and checking the work but after not driving my car for two months i was excited to have a reliable mode of transportation. Now im stuck with no vehicle. In addition the guy at the front desk told me the speedometer didn't work because of gears inside the speedometer itself, and i was told today it was a gear inside the transmission. He told me two days in a row he was getting quotes for the parts in which he never called. Also the fact they left out telling me about the additional parking brake part that was needed, the tech stated that another cable was stretched and couldn't be adjusted further without being replaced. The lack of communication between the front desk and the techs need to vastly improve.
Desired Settlement: I would like a refund of 62.50 for the towing fee and partial fee for the speedometer which was never fixed.
Business Response: Initial Business Response /* (1000, 9, 2013/10/07) */ Vehicle was towed and checked in on 9/10/2013. Customers original concern was broken brake line, parking brake cable needs replaced, and speedometer inop, battery dead. Initial check of the vehicle showed parking brake cables seized up, and no speedometer operation, and no brake fluid leaks. Customer approved replacing parking brake cables (supplied by customer), and time to remove the speed sensor at the transmission to determine cause of no speedometer, brake fluid checked as needing service soon and no brake lines leaking although there was rust on the entire underside of the vehicle. After removing the speed sensor from the transmission the speedometer cable and the speedometer in the instrument cluster were found to be good with the problem being in the speed sensor and drive gear whick is on the rear shaft of the transmission. Due to the age of the vehicle it was difficult to locate the needed parts for the speed sensor and drive gear. The customer did not approve the speedometer repair and never questioned our not recommending any brake line replacement. All repairs were completed as approved and a final check and drive was performed and the vehcile was released to the customer on 9/12/2013. Customer called on 9/19/2013, one week later, and asked if we could check his brake fluid. After customer drove vehicle to our shop and brake fluid was checked and found low in the resivour. Resivour was topped off and vehicle was placed on a lift and found a brake line now leaking. Due to undercar rust I made the recommendation to replace all brake lines, fuel lines , and front parking brake cable. Customer declined the repair and said he wanted his vehicle towed to his house which we did at no charge. I have no proble refunding the customer $62.50 for the tow to our shop for the original repair. The charge for the speedometer was to determine the cause of its failure and he declined the repair so there should have been no expectation it would have been repaired.
