Additional Notes

Complaint: I wish to file a complaint against Cecil Atkission Chrysler Dodge Jeep 4121 W Lutcher dr. Orange, TX 77630. Their phone number is (877) 444-1091. I bought my 2012 Jeep Patriot brand new from there in August 2013. Since then It has been in the shop three times, twice of which were for the front end. The first time they did not fix the problem with the front end. I let them know when I put it in the second time because the window switch had stopped working. After having my vehicle for over 24 hours and not even looking at it I had to have my father call to get that done. I had to fight for a rental which I could not even use to do my job. I got it back the front end never got looked at and it was still popping. I then had two tires replaced for going bald at only 11k miles. They are now bald again because of the front end less than 5k miles later. They refuse to do anything about the tires insisting its because of my job. I am a rural carrier however a 50k tire should last much longer than this. Then, I put it back in the shop on Tuesday when there was a louder pop followed by difficulty with the tires rotating and problems with the steering. They have done nothing but run me around and stress me out over a new jeep that should not be having these problems at less than 16k miles. I have since put my boyfriend in charge because I can't ever seem to get things done without a line of excuses from them. Yesterday **** said my vehicle would be ready today and now they are saying Monday. Thank you for your time.

Desired Settlement: No one should have to deal with these issues from the staff on a new vehicle that is constantly breaking. I believe it is a lemon but they argue that. I don't know what else to do but file a complaint.

Business Response: ****** ******* uses her vehicle for Rural routes which is commercial use of vehicle and this type of model is not suited for. If Chrysler was aware of what she used the vehicle for there would be restriction on her warranty based on the ware and tare of the work she does. Unfortunately for her we were busy that day she unexpectedly dropped it off and we got to it as quick as possible (the following day). We got her a loan vehicle for good will to try and make her happy the first vehicle did not make her happy so we gave her a 2nd vehicle and that still wasn't sufficient. Unfortunately as far as the tires are concerned, the ware factors of the tires are because of road conditions not from our drivable of the vehicle. We will do anything that falls in scope of warranty to help ms sorrels out for as long as where able. She was not responsible for any part of the bills at any time while here at Cecil Motors.
