Service Advisor, Ivan Perez and Service Mgr, Chuck, have very deceptive practices and are under handed individuals. The two of them mislead me, flat out lied to me, by telling me that my key fob was broken and a new one was required for $390. My key fob was not broken, damaged, had gouges & missing internal pieces or malfunctioning pieces as they claim. They broke my key fob to gain money out of me unnecessarily. My car was there for 3 days while I tried to plead my case of the shady, under handed practices that I had been dealt with the Nissan Corporate office. Unfortunately, I was told that Auto Nation Nissan Lewisville is a franchise dealership and they have no authority over them. I would have to speak with the general manager, Dustin Osborne.
It turned out that my key fob was not broken or malfunctioning or inoperable as Ivan Perez and Chuck, the Service Mgr, told me. I went to pick up the car, after authorizing the charge for a new key fob and Ivan told me "It will be about 30min more....we have to pair your new key fob with your intermittent one". I asked him "Do you mean my old key fob...the one that you said does not work, and that a new one is needed"? He said "Yes. We have to pair the new one with the old one. They work together". I was livid!!!! I told him that he was once again a LIAR!!!! How can you pair my old key fob to the new one if the old one does not work as you so claim!!!!
I attempted to reach the General Mgr, Dustin Osborne, on 4 different times to express my concern and ask for his assistance, but he never returned my call. I asked for Dustin Osborne yesterday while I was in the Service Dept., and he was no where to be found. He was always conveniently in a meeting, writing a paper contract, at lunch, in another meeting and not once returned my call, a customer with a concern.
Dustin Osborne called today and was flat out rude, totally unprofessional, talked over me, lied to me, accused me of lying and refused to hear what I had to say. He relied totally on the explanation of what happened with my experience with his service department by the lies of his service personnel.
I have filed a complaint with the Better Business Bureau. I plan to file a lawsuit in Small Claims Court and go to the media. I will take my complaint as far as I can. I plan to shed light on the crooked dealings of the service department, its personnel, management staff, their lack of professionalism, dishonest dealings and all around horrible customer service.
Do not take your car for service at Auto Nation Nissan Lewisville. Please be warned!!!
