Last week they called and said they had the part, so I drove the car up at 12:45 yesterday, dropped her off, and came home for what was supposed to be 2 hours of intallation. -HA!
I received a call at 4PM telling me that the part was not for my car, but was compatible, and that it would not be able to open the power sliding doors. So I would have to carry 2 remotes, 1 to open the sliders, 1 to start, and they would basically look identical. Say what!? They had promised it would just be a completely filled in remote and I would only have 1 when I booked the appointment. I said I'd have to think about it.
About 6PM they called to tell me the starter wasn't going to work because it was incompatible with my van and could not be programmed. WHAT!? My car was there for 6 hours and they just figured that out!? ARGH!
So, I picked up the car, no remote starter, and now I have to wait 2-4 weeks for a refund check from the dealership (because I paid for it when I bought the car) so that I can pay off the remote starter I am going to have installed after-market. I couldn't be more frustrated right now. I just want to stop freezing my butt off!
Car dealerships are my own personal version of hell, what's yours?!?
