Business Response: FIRST OF ALL , MY REGRETS TO THIS CUSTOMER AS I TRIED TO HAVE THEM UNDERSTAND; WHEN THIS CUSTOMER BROUGHT THIS CAR IN FOR REPAIRS, THEY TOLD ME TO REPLACE THE SENSOR BECAUSE SOMEONE ELSE DIAGNOSED AND CONFIRMED THE PROBLEM . AS WELL WE CHECKED THE VEHICLE AND THE SPEEDOMETER DID NOT WORK . AFTER REPLACING THE SENSER, THE SPEEDO WORKED. THE TRANS PERFORMED POORLY AND WE MADE SOME ADJUSTMENTS , THE CHARGE WAS $120. LABOR AND 35 FOR A USED SPEED SENSER. CUSTOMER PAID AND LEFT SOON TO RETURN , ANOTHER SPEED SENSER , IT WORKS AGAIN GONE AGAIN . NO/CHARGE . A FEW DAYS LATER , AFTER 2 HOURS OF DIAGNOSTIC TIME AND TESTING ; NO/CHARGE WE FIND , THE CUSTOMER HAS A SHORT-CIRCUIT IN THE DASH. WHICH CAN BE CONFIRMED BY TAPPING ON THE DASH AND MAKING THE SPEEDO WORK AGAIN. AT NO TIME DID WE ADVISE THE CUSTOMER TO DANG THEIR DASH FOR SATISFACTION. MEARLY TO SHOW CUSTOMER THE CONFIRMATION OF PROBLEM. AFTER INFORMING CUSTOMER WE DONOT WORK ON THIS TYPE OF PROBLEM, SHE LEFT. THE NEXT DAY ASKING FOR THE RETURN OF HER MONEY. I INFORMED HER, THE WORK WE PERFORMED WAS DONE CORRECT AND ACCURATE TO HER ORDERS. I EVEN RETURNED THE MONEY FOR HER USED SENSER AS SHE ACCEPTED.
