yeah that's wack. Is your truck out of the original warranty period?So... fuck my dealership’s service dept.
Yesterday morning I was moving my front driver’s seat forward to clean underneath the seat when I heard a crack. Turns out the SRS connector was somehow angled down on the tab it’s installed on and when I moved the seat forward it drug on the carpet and cut the wires flush off the F connector. This caused my airbag light to come on.
So I stopped by the dealer service dept. to have the connector re-pinned. I let them know that I’m going on a road trip Friday morning, so for safety reasons I need it fixed before I leave. Shouldn’t be a problem, truck doesn’t need diagnostics, takes 15 minutes to do and I’m on my way.
Literally 4 hours later I get a phone call saying that not only can the connector not be re-pinned, but they need to keep my truck for a few days, rip out my interior, replace the entire wiring harness, and oh yeah - they’re not covering it under warranty.
This is where I lose my fucking mind. I didn’t detonate a block of c4 under my seat and expect it to be covered - I moved my seat all the way forward for the first time on a truck with less than 2K miles on it and these mf’s want to charge me 3 grand to fix it? Then they have the balls to try and charge me a fucking $159 diagnostic fee.
I took my keys, told them to suck a bag of dicks on the diagnostic fee, knife-handed the service manager for trying to work me over, and left in a cloud of pissed the fuck off.
Once I get home I sit down at my office desk and look at the connector. I end up discovering that it can-indeed be re-pinned after taking it apart with a fucking thumb-tac and a pencil.
So I solder new pigtails onto the pins, heat-shrink some butt-connectors, toss it back on and fucking good to go. 10 god-damn minutes and costed me about $1.
Seriously considering a refund on my extended warranty. If that is the type of shady ineptitude I have to deal with then I’d rather just service everything myself. What do y’all think?
Nah it’s brand new with only 2,000 miles on it. The warranty smells newer than the truck. They gave me a discount on the extended warranty because I work in the auto industry, which is the only reason I went for it. But I’d rather put the money toward cool shit then to have to deal with them again.yeah that's wack. Is your truck out of the original warranty period?
Partially why I didn't bother with an extended warranty. It's inconvenient but definitely find another dealer for future work. Some dealerships just don't wanna deal with the paperwork lol
Lol, yep. Dolan’s don’t know how close I sit to them at UNR Basketball games. I can make it awkward reallllll quick.is your bad dealership also my same bad dealership? sorry to hear about the misfortune man, I always feel like a warranty is just a piece of paper they sell you and what they actually do for you after signing it is the same or worse than solving the problem yourself out of pocket. Best of luck sir
Yeah this is the KC5. Install isn’t bad at all. Took me about 30 minomegajelly right now shit. Gonna see if he has any left. I meant to get these but forgot in the mess of these last several months. Looks awesome!
which config is this? the KC5?
Had my eye on the BD4 set but its out of stock
Yeah my only criticism of Meso is he rarely meets the demand for his products or his timelines for development. I don’t think he wants to keep a backstock of higher priced items. Might have something to do with manufacturing overheads or something.I missed the last order window so I'll just sit tight for the next one I guess. They look awesome!
Precisely why I don’t own any MESO products. Can never catch them in stock lolYeah my only criticism of Meso is he rarely meets the demand for his products or his timelines for development.
