Never again will I take any vehicle to Geri Lynn Nissan in Houma, LA.
My partner and I alternate bringing cars for service appointments. My experience was always straight forward, relatively quick, and no real issues. My wife on the other hand, always a run around, told she needed repairs only to find out we didn't, or mis-diagnosis issues, that if we wanted specific information would cost a $99 diagnosis. My wife brought her car in for an oil change and is told she needs over $3k in repairs, I bring it to another mechanic and they can't find that problem, or it's something else and far less costly.
When I called Geri Lynn to bring this to her attention, instantly she gets aggressively defensive saying things like, "We don't do that!", or "That's not how it works here!" Not once was there any semblance of an apology that we gave that impression, or I'm sorry if a mistake was made.
It really gives the impression that she is either aware and endorses it, or is completely out of touch and unaware of what's happening under her businesses roof.
I can appreciate that dealership repairs with certified parts and employees cost more, but I also know they will hire mechanics with almost no experience. I also know some of her mechanics don't even bother to do the multi point inspection during an oil change and just fudge the numbers they write on the inspection sheet.
My wife should never be treated differently than me in that situation, and no business owner should argue that a customer was wrong in a situation like above.
Also, when I called for a quote after my wife was told a CV Joint boot was torn, but they couldn't tell her which side, they told me it would be over 3 Grand (just shy of $3,600), and they could get it in that afternoon to start the repair. When I challenged them not knowing which side they told me a diag would be $99/side and that the mechanic likely saw grease dripping from it.
Took it to a mechanic that does great work, that has honored their work in the past, and it's the struts, something he was able to tell after a 1 min test drive and with a flashlight. Looking at around $700. That's a huge discrepancy.
