My Nissan broke down a few weeks ago and between then and now (roughly 3 weeks later) is the time that it's taken for me to be back in it. When I first spoke with someone, I was told that once they figured out the issue he would get back to me with what the issue was, then if I chose to have the service done I would receive a rental while they worked on it, since the rental was covered in my extended warranty. The next communication I received from Nissan (about a week and a half later) was a voicemail from the man telling me my car was ready.
I never received any communication about the progress of the whole ordeal. In the meantime, I tried to reach out to him to get status updates, only to be met with holding music for half-hour increments, sometimes being hung up on, then calling back to be immediately sent to holding music. In other words, I could not get in touch with the service professional at all. When I finally did (another few days later), I was given some insight into the issue, but told that the true problem would not be fixed because of concerns with the warranty company. I won't go into all the details here, but my biggest issue with this is the lack of communication between Nissan and me about my car. I was forced to inconvenience others and use their cars while I waited because I was under the impression that I would have a rental...although I had to drive around for nearly 3 weeks while waiting.
Long story short(ish), the communication was absolutely unprofessional and unappreciated, and I came out of the entire ordeal with the greatest degree of satisfaction. I will be reaching out to higher management to better understand their policies on customer service, because I'm not quite sure what was given to me. If there are any stars tied to this review it's only because I have to give at least one.
