Service Complete

Wow, Brecht was on form today. First they give me a brand new ’07 MC automatic to drive as a loaner, and then they call lunchtime to tell me all the work is done. I’m a little bummed, had been hoping to drive the ’07 for a while longer but no reason not to go pick Carrie up this early.

Something new, for me at least: I got an email with a summary of the work that was done this trip.

Item Pay Type Item Status Concern Correction
24 Warranty Done CUSTOMER STATES INSPECTION 1 SERVICE DUE PERF INSP 1 AND DID ADAPTATION TESDT DROVE FOR 2.1 MILES
25 Warranty Done WARRANTY TAX WARRANTY TAX
26 Warranty Done CUSTOMER STATES LIGHTS BEHIND THE CLIMATE CONTROL, ON DASH ARE OUT R/R CLIMATE CONTROL UNIT KNOB SYSTEM
27 Warranty Done CUSTOMER STATES LEFT FRONT SEATBELT TWISTED UNTWISTED SEATBELT
28 Warranty Done CUSTOMER STATES FRONT WIPERS POOR CLEANING REPLACED WIPER BLADE INSERTS
29 Warranty Done CUSTOMER STATES REAR WIPERS POOR CLEANING NO WORK DONE

I like item 29. Of course the rear wipe action is poor – there is no rear wiper on the convertible!

  1. I like 27, twisted seat belt. Simply says untwisted seat belt. Of course what else could you expect.

    Reminds me of reports about problems with aircraft and mechanics reports on how they fixed the problems that I read a few years ago now with ones like –

    Problem – Sounds like small men with hammers banging under console.

    Repair – Took the small men’s hammers away.

    At least it was something very much like that.

  2. So Paul, did you request the front wipers, or is the dealership in the habit of adding “change front / rear wipers” to the list to boost their warranty work? Bit of a give away when they want to do the rear – after all you wouldn’t have asked for that would you?!
    😉

    Nice idea though; I haven’t seen that at MoP

  3. I asked for the wipers to be changed; I paid for the extended warranty and there’s a good chance my next service will come too late. So I figure making sure I get the wipers is good 🙂

    They had to replace the entire climate control unit and it seems they unhooked the auto-up in the process. My windows did nothing when ‘double clicked’ on the way home.
