Are you happy?

I brought my goat to the garage today at two o clock. It has that gauge problem once or twice a month. I believe there is a TSB on this, from what I gather on the forum. Five o clock rolls around, no call. I call them and no one is there. everyone is gone for the night. Im so glad they neglected to mention I would not have a car for the night. So far I have been happy with my service until the last few visits. Is everyone else happy with there garage?

Just got it back today. They were wondering where I was last night. ??????
WTF. And to top it all off the guy gives me an invoice for 16.34. I said the car is under warrenty. He replys, "Oil changes are not covered under warrenty".
WTF!!!! I say "My car was here for a gauge cluster problem". He was then very aplogetic, and scheduled me in for next week. Hope it goes better then. By the way he did not charge me for the oil change.

I hope to hell the idiot put synthetic in your car! 16.34 doesn't sound like it though...

At a stealership, a synthetic oil change should be more than that!

I mean, it's not like it says mobil 1 synthetic on the oil cap! oh, crap, it does!

Nothing better than a dealer making you feel like you know more about your car than they do

i bought mine from a little mom and pop dealer in my town
my pulley belt shredded within the first 1000 miles of driving
they took it right in and fixed it in a good time looked over it and gave a reasonable explaination why it may have happened. i had a good experiance buying and so far am happy with the service.

I think it's unfortunate that GM obviously hasn't trained it's service techs much on the GTO.

I guess that's the price we pay for driving what is nearly a domestic exotic if that's not an oxymoron.
