I hate to deal with dealerships, I wish you strength and the patience to deal with those people and I hope you have Hoppers better than it was in no time.
Oh, I agree. I'm not upset with the insurance company. They're just doing what they do. The insurance company will come up with a figure they are willing to pay based on what a comperable used engine would cost. The dealer will have to come up with the rest.The dealer's insurance is right. They shouldn't have to cover a new engine when the dealer didn't damage a new engine. Ideally, the dealership would agree to pay the difference in the 'betterment agreement' but from a business standpoint, you're going to have an uphill battle.
:werd:I think I'm being a pretty nice guy about it so far, and hoping they return the favor. If not, I will then suddenly need that rental car and will demand they refund the $442 I paid for their service that killed my engine.
I will also get in touch with an attorney as well as a local consumer advocate from a news station.
I totally agree.Know any lawyers?
I know VWofA is a big, super wealthy corporation, but you have a good case.
You should check out the local VW scene. There's a GTG next weekend at iHop in Robinson. "Hope" to have my Beetle back by then.I just stumbled across this thread and thoroughly enjoyed see'ing a well taken care of beetle in the "burg"
