I have a 2015 Fiat 500e. I originally phoned two weeks ago and explained there were some irregularities with the charging and could I bring it in. I... was told it wasn't anything to be concerned with as long as I didn't see any lights on the LED indicating an issue. I phoned back last week and asked again if I could make an appointment as I wanted the issue addressed before the warranty expired, in addition to another noise the car created when making a turn. I secured an appointment through Samantha and brought it in this morning 17 min earlier than my scheduled appointment of 1030. I was greeted by the service advisor, Adam and was first told they probably wouldn't be able to get to the car until the next day as I brought it in so late. I told him I had an appointment; then he said it would probably have to be there all day until 1830 and lastly, why didn't I take it to the Berkeley dealership since I lived there. He seemed a bit frazzled and discombobulated, so I quickly explained the issues I wanted to have inspected: the charging inconsistencies, a noise on left front tire and the brakes plus some minor things. He told me of a recall issue and the need for a software update. (I don't know why I wasn't informed when I originally phoned with the charging concern) He then explained my car was no longer under warranty. So, he seemed willing to work with me especially on the cost of repairs, but advised me on having any brake work done, if needed, with the dealership because I would want factory parts and service for that sort of work. He told me he'd phone me at 1330 and give me an update on the service. We were told to wait in the service lounge until a shuttle could be arranged for a trip to a nearby mall. (on a side note, it took 1.5 hr to get the shuttle) By 1530, I had not heard back and phoned the service department. I was told the service advisor would receive the message and phone me back. By 1619, I still had not received a phone call, so I phoned them again to get an update. Again, I was told the service advisor would return my call. I phoned back again at 1628 to ask them if they would place it on charge as I had to drive it back to Berkeley. At this point, I was informed it had not been inspected, yet and would probably have to overnight (this was with an appointment). I said if that was the case, I simply want my car back and to please arrange a pick up for us. That's when I finally was able to speak with Adam. He hurriedly explained he was arranging to have a Lyft car collect us and bring us back to the dealership. He hung up before I could ask him to be certain it was placed on charge. When I arrived, Adam immediately and frenetically explained the tires were off, the car was up in the air and they were in the middle of the inspection. He asked me to wait in the service lounge. I was flummoxed. I waited outside to speak with the mechanic to find out what the issues were as Adam seemed rather flustered and I honestly, didn't understand what he said. The mechanic told me there actually was an issue with the front tire involving the shock and a hydraulic leak, plus I was told it was a good thing I had the software glitch fixed. They couldn't recreate the braking issue ( I suspect it was never taken out for a drive) and had the tires rotated. All for $199.95. I found out later from the mechanic, the $180 charge involving the hydraulic leak was not to repair it, but simply confirm it. Awesome. Oh, and the car wasn't charged. However, they did offer to put it on a charger, that is until they unplugged it @1730 and closed up shop. If you'd like to experience this kind of shoddy, inept, abominable, maladroit customer service head on over to @lithiafiatofconcord. I understand they're under new management.
Went to check out a used FIat 500E. Billy Beyer helped us out and was great to work with, as was Lauren who helped with the financials. Easy to get along... with and very straightforward with everything. Even got a hold of some balloons for our 3 year old. If we end up needing to get something else anytime soon, we'll probably be heading back here.
Sean was great, and kept me updated the whole time. The offer and use of a rental car made a huge difference!
Tony helped straighten out an error with the maintenance contract. He was very knowledgeable and made me feel like I could trust him to make sure I was... taken care of.
