Additional Notes

Complaint: Lead to believe that the parts were not available that could have fixed the Car. Talked into buying the most expensive parts. Deceptive actions. Dear **** *****, I'm writing you this email to enlighten you on your service department and ask how you would feel if this happened to you or one of your family members. I have seen allot of your commercials and have a sister in law that bought a mini van from you. We are from Price Utah and have two car dealerships in town. We have used them in the past for car repairs. We have a Jeep Wrangler and a Jeep Liberty. And we are in the process of ordering a brand new Ram Eco-diesel. So the problem started when we went to start the Liberty Friday Dec 26th in the morning to head to Midway to visit family. My husband goes out to start the Jeep and the key just turned and the Jeep wouldn't start. My sons went out to check and said that the ignition was broken. Of course they came in and You Tubed the problem. Ignition Acutater switch. Easy fix, it said just need the parts and tools. I didn't feel like I could ask them to do it, because its Christmas. So I called **** Smith Auto. Since the commercials looked so friendly. Not... I talked to the parts department and they said they had that part in for 116.00 and that they had it in stock. Perfect. I had a tow truck come get the Jeep and had it taken to your dealership. Thinking that it would be an easy fix. That is were the problem turned to a nightmare. So 1200.00 and 6 days later I got my Jeep back.I also was sent to Enterprise to rent a Vehicle thinking that I would only have to have the truck for a day or too. Nope 6 days and 230.00 later. I have been left with so much disrespect for your company I can hardly explain. Why would you allow your service department be so dishonest? My Sons warned me that they would try and sell me the WHOLE steering column. And they did. I had the run around for 5 days. First ****** told me that they couldn't find just the ignition. They would try and find one from another shop. I just was told from your parts department that they had one in stock. So I got the call that they couldn't find one. That they could find a used one. I said okay. That took another day and more frustration. Then the call that the used one didn't work. We could put in a new one. Meaning the steering column at 680.00 or she could keep looking? You have an Ideal employee there. ****** knows just the right answers and had us so frustrated that what else could we do but fall in the snare and get the new steering column that we didn't need. I bet they were laughing behind our backs, since they screwed another out of towner. So long story short. 1. You just bought yourself 1200.00 worth of BAD ADVERTISEMENT. 2. I will stick to my hometown dealerships than EVER deal with your business again. 3. Purchase my BRAND NEW RAM from anyone but you. 4. NEVER recommend your business to anyone. EVER...... 5. Report your company and ****** to the BBB for fraudulent actions. I know that you think, big deal shes just one little customer. But maybe you don't really know me. Does Deer Valley ring a bell? Just saying. Well I'm sure that you will toss this email into the trash and go about making the big money from people just trying to get by. If this happens again, I will tow my vehicles back to Carbon County were I know I will be treated with honestly and respect. I just wanted to let you know that this isn't the end. I will be giving your company a review and I'm sorry if anyone else falls victim to ******. Shes really good at making you money. Even if it is dishonestly. Finally picked up my Jeep December 31st. What a nightmare. I guess we will see what kind of business owner you are if you have the decency to reply. Thank You. Another customer that has been taken advantage of, ***** ***** ************

Desired Settlement: I will pay for the actual part that needed to be replaced at 116.00 and the labor for that installation. **** ***** refund the days of the rental car that I didn't need. 4 days of refund. 150.00 Refund me the price of the steering column that I didn't even need. 684.00.
