RE: 1999 GMC Jimmy - pre-owned - from at Columbia Pontiac Buick GMC of Hanover, MA
Bought a pre-owned a GM CERTIFIED Dealership for near $20,000 on Saturday.
Although it was a GM Certified it had a crack and small whole in the windshield which I asked to have replaced.
Verbally confirmed by sales person dealership would take care of it.
Picked up vehicle to take ownership inquired of replaced windshield as the sun was so bright my 60 year old eyes couldn't tell. I was told it was taken care of.
On way home noticed it was not fixed.
Called back on Sunday asking what's up with the windshield. was told it had been repaired. I said replaced was the word not repaired. Although it was a GM CERTIFIED vehicle it also making loud humming noise at 60 mph. Brought in 8 am Monday am. for service
Was told window would have to be taken up with sales.
Left note for sales
Called later asking what's up with window.
told they are working on it they will talk later
later went to pick up car not done
window not replaced
said want money back
said can't do that
said I don't want the car give me my money back
said sorry you bought the car it is yours
I left and emailed everyone I thought may assist me with this GM Certified dilemma
next day they said the windshield is replaced I wonder if it is a GM Certified window or after market
But do I dare get fussy after all I only paid near $20,000 for this set of wheels!!!
hum not yet found
next *3rd* day hum cause still not found
tomorrow the 4 th day at the GM Certified Dealership to fix a GM Certified1999 auto which has been around
for a few years!!!!!!!!!!!!!are these people human or what and did GM train them? To do what?
I asked if they are spending time with the car or is it just sitting
Then said I would come pick it up
After speaking with the crew at work who can't believe this is happening with such a up to now considered a pretty reputable dealership advised me to change my mind and leave it there figuring they probably are dragging it on to aggravate me more and want me to take it off their hands. I expect at this point I don't know what to do. Go to a lawyer?
1. my warranty should not start until the vehicle leaves the shop or I should get my money back
and I want to ask
how long does one realistically give a dealership to fix a car.
I work 25 miles away and have a very responsible job. I open the office and have 35 people who depend on me to keep it running.
And you can believe none of them nor their friends and families will escape knowing who to steer clear of when looking to purchase a vehicle. You can put money on that!
And I am a very giving kind and responsible person who is respected by many. I take spiders outside rather than kill them!
Please advise if you can.
