On March 2, 2011, I scheduled an appointment with Ron to have a diagnostic done on my 2001 chevy camaro Z28. I brought the car in and Ron requested I leave the vehicle overnight in order to hear what the engine sounded like when first started because he couldn't hear any noises coming from the engine. When I contacted him the following morning he said my engine was totaled and I needed $6,000 for a new LS1 engine. He said he could hear two rods knocking due to neglect by not having enough oil in the car. I told him 'I HAVE ALWAYS HAD THE OIL CHANGED, THAT THE ENGINE HAS NEVER KNOCKED, IN FACT, IT ONLY HAD 77,000 MILES AND I HAVE NEVER HAD ANY PROBLEMS WITH IT. He said you will either have to pay $6,000 or $40,000 for a new car. I asked how long would I be able to drive the car, he said it could blow at any time and to leave the car with him and he will see if he could find a used engine. I became very upset stating I am disabled and on a fixed income and couldn't possibly come up with that kind of money. I decided to pick the car up. When Ron walked me back to the cashier, he told the cashier "She blew up her engine and now she wants to just take it home". I couldn't believe my ears when they brought the car to me. It was knocking so loud, there was metal scraping noises from under the car when I tried to turn the steering wheel. I asked what did they do to my engine!!! Ron didn't respond. I said I would have to have it towed, and Ron said "you might as well drive it, it can't get any worse".
I would appreciate it if you could have my engine fixed/use another repairer to fix the problem within 30 days. I rely on my car for transport and apart from the inconvenience, this problem has also caused me to incur additional costs i.e. towing and rental car expenses (I have receipts).
The reason for the negative ratings I have given this dealership is my deceased father bought his Silverado Truck at Folsom Chevy and he used to always have it serviced at Folsom Chevy. If he were alive, he would be so disappointed on how I've been treated and how much the professionalism, concern for the customer and the treatment of the customer's vehicles has declined.
