"Lamest Subaru service. Just moved here from the..."

- Logpro

Lamest Subaru service. Just moved here from the mainland and took my Forrester in for a service and diagnose a low rpm miss that was worse in wet conditions. Based on my mechanical experience I told the service manager I assumed it was spark plug wires or spark plugs themselves. I was ridiculed by the service manager that it was more likely to be injectors instead. They completed an oil change but I question the validity of the other items supposedly included in a service, ie check all fluid levels, rotate tires etc based on what happened next all for $110. I watched their "technician" when took the car and drove it. He then pulled it up outside the shop, fussed with the hood (which was slightly damaged during shipment), closed the hood and it sat there for 45 minutes. It was then pulled around by the service office and sat there for another half hour before the service writer came out to me. The claim on the bill was that my concern was validated, that a scan tool was used and no codes were found (I had already informed that no lights had come on the dash) and that the tech recommended replacing spark plugs before further diagnoses (what an epiphany!) when I asked why the plugs were not changed since I had asked for the miss to be repaired I was told they had only one spark plug in stock and I should bring it back for the 60K service when the plugs would be replaced (for $560). First issue, I watched the tech, he never touched the engine or used a scan tool. Secondly NO spark plugs at a dealership! Have they never heard of a parts runner to go get some plugs. And thirdly I was charged $130 for this total incompetence. I will never return to this lame dealership. Crappy building, no showroom, sales people playing video games for the three hours I was there, an incompetent service department as well an poorly managed parts department. Oh and I almost forgot about their claimed covid sanitation efforts, I never witnessed any cleaning that is allegedly done every hour according to their web site, tables for customers were filthy in their outside waiting area, bathrooms were disgusting too. I am on my third Forrester (second brand New) and had definitely planned on a new one in 2022, they have all been great vehicles. Not now, with this incompetent Subaru service support on the Big Island by "Big Island Motors" I'll probably buy a Toyota instead.

"Confused ,"

- martyn garrerr

I thought service was a business wants to be known for , the service manager was hard to deal with, and when I signed the car in he did not give me a copy...... He told me it was not a recall item , but I said it should be and is pending to be one. He had me sign that, but barely let me see it., and again no copy. He said the oil is to clean , and is suspicious . I had heard good things in all fairness to him, my friend had one ,she had since it was new , and he handled it well. I presume it was him.It seems the shop is over whelmed with work ,so maybe it is to large of a job. 2011 -2014 had inferior rod bearings approximately 470,000 were recalled., and the article said their are pending law suits. It has been since the 17th,and the car is just sitting, went in Friday , and I am still confused as to what he wants, and there is proof of the oil change but he will not even look. He says he needs that. I just want to know will they warranty it,if they will,give me the voucher,and if you don't want the work,and your to busy I will go else where. NO PROBLEM. /Well ,what a difference a day makes at (935 am Hst. ,the service manager called they will warranty the repair......may take some time they have 3 ahead of me...........

"I like my car but I hate their service"

- Still waiting

I bought a brand new Hyundai here. I love my car thus far. Three weeks ago I came back to make an appointment for its first service. I am bringing it here because the salesperson told me at the time of buying that they keep meticulous mechanic records and Hyundai is super strict on warranty issues so their records will be examined should I have an issue. Anyway, upon walking in to make an appointment I see 3 people at the counter and not one person even acknowledges me. I wait 4 minutes before even getting acknowledged. Finally I ask to make an appointment and he says "Good thing you came in now cuz we are booked tight for weeks". Ok so I get an appointment for 3 weeks later. I show up today for my appointment. I was about 20 minutes early but I go into the service office. Again no acknowledgement. Finally another 5 minutes later I am able to check in. Mind you no one else besides 4 workers are in the office. I told him I am here for an oil change and I will be waiting and does he have an estimate on how long it will take. He says probably 2 to 2 1/2 hours. Really? Just an oil change! Killing me. Ok I have no choice but to wait. I head to the "customers lounge". So here I am at the so called lounge. There is one old worn couch that is so incredibly uncomfortable. There is a tv and a dirty old water cooler. About an hour into waiting a worker comes in to get water. He fills his cup and spills it on the floor. He doesn't bother to clean it up and walks out. Seriously? Anyhow, I am still waiting and haven't heard from anyone on the progress. Hoping I get outta here soon and the car is in tip top shape without costing me an arm and a leg. Thinking I will find a different place for service who also keeps meticulous records so as I don't ever have to come back. Seems like the DeLuz family needs to work on customer service if they want to keep customers. I really wish I could have bought my car elsewhere.

"dirty dealers"

- malachi prince

I bought a car that had been uncleaned from the previouse owner. I made an agreement upon the sale to return to have it cleaned,when i came to pick up the car had a serious problem vibrating at high speeds. so i needed to return again and was charged to repair a loosened spark plug wire even though i had bought a warranty.
