Complaint Review: Amtrak Auto Train
Amtrak Auto Train FOIA OfficerSharron H. Hawkins Items stolen from my 2011 Forrest Green Toyota Rav4 while I travel to Florida via Amtrak's Auto Train Lorton Virginia
I have been traveling coach with my wife in Amtrak's Auto Train to Florida for many years and I am very pissed off about what happened during our December 2013 Christmas holidays round trip. Two (2) items were stolen from my 2011 Forrest Green Toyota Rav4.
(1)On 12/21/13 we departed from Lorton-VA (Auto Train 52) and arrived 12/22/13 in Sanford-Fl. While driving 1 hour away from Sanford I noticed that my $100 Vuarnet designer polarized sun glasses were missing from the dashboard compartment below the radio. (2) On 1/2/14 we departed from Sanford-Fl (Auto Train 52) to Lorton-VA and again unsuspecting anything had been missing I drove away and reached my final destination in Garfield-NJ. On the way home I reach for coins I kept in a small black plastic container that I kept in the glove compartment to pay a toll. [continued below]....
After a long wait without response from Amtrak I filled complaints with the BBB and Consumer's Affair.gov.
In addition, today 3/6/14 I received the following email from Amtrak
