UPDATE: Spending time to email the customer service rep is useless.
Main issue, I received no explanation as to why my mothers car was found parked at the very END of a lot BEHIND the dealership during a diagnostic appointment. "Various testing.." For anyone reading this - once a technician gets to a car clearing an engine light can take seconds. A handheld machine is plugged into the car and it will tell you what the issue is. If it clears - engine light no longer comes back - no other work is needed.
My explanation; At this dealership they will park your car in a hidden area in order for you to believe it is still in the shop. My mother literally sat outside on a block staring at her parked car. This must be common because not only did they lie to my mother they are now lying to me.
ORIGINAL GOOGLE POST:
My mother (accompanied by my grandmother) came in today to have an engine light diagnosed, she was cheated and lied to. Service adivsor "Jeremy". She was told she would have to pay $195 and wait for one hour and a half. 8:30AM - "We'll call you when it is ready." With that her and my grandmother wandered about the dealership grounds as they were not permitted inside. During their wandering my mother noticed her car was parked outside and not being worked on. After half an hour and inquiring more than once, a detailer came to clean it..... It was sitting in a lot the whole time not being worked on!! She paid her invoice at 10:29AM.
I am reading her service invoice - NO WORK WAS DONE TO THE CAR. You don't charge someone if no work is done. You DEFINITELY don't make elderly people who are at the dealership wait for NO REASON. Error codes take SECONDS to clear. She was told the car was fine but to come back again if the engine light returns. Wonderful another $200 charge while Jeremy twiddles his thumbs for 2 hours!
