Please beware of your dealer's service maintenance jobs!
My husband owns a 2005 Hyundai Accent.
I just want to post this message to make everybody aware of how the dealers take advantage of all the people that give all their TRUST to their dealer's services:
It started March 25, 2010 when my husband brought his car for service at Rexdale Hyundai dealer (@ 248 Rexdale Blvd. toronto, ON). As ususal, the dealer did the 33 point inspection and advised my husband to do the tune-up, timing belt, and change air filter on the next scheduled service. On his way home, he noticed his Engine Light turns on after the service. We decided to phone the delear and ask what might be the problem with our car, they told us to bring the car, have it inspected. So we decided to bring it back, again they told us that our car needs to be tuned-up and needed to have the timing belt replaced. It will cost us so much money and decided to postpone the tune-up and the timing belt.
Four months later, the Engine Light was still on, out of curiosity, my husband decided to check under the hood, and he did freaked-out when he noticed that the Air Filter was gone!
I immediately phoned Rexdale Hyundai's Service Department and talked to the Service Manager (his name is Harry). What can I expect, ofcourse he denied that the missing air filter was their fault. I told him that we exclusively bring our car to their dealership because our car is STILL UNDER WARRANTY, we never bring the car anywhere else because we do not want to void the warranty. My husband brought a new air filter yesterday from Canadian Tire and walla - the Engine Light turned off immediately!
Our lesson was, not to bring my car for service ever again at Rexdale Hyundai!
