Complaint Review: Mike Shaw Subaru
Mike Shaw Subaru Severely overcharged for a 30,000 mile service and oil change other Colorado
*Consumer Comment: Dealer Service
My wife did not have a good experience with Mike Shaw Subaru. She took her car in for an oil change and a recommended 30,000 mile service. No one there told her how much it would be and unfortunately she assumed that it would be minimal work and price. She was told it would take three hours, but dropped her car off at 0745 and it wasn’t ready until 5 p.m. That’s three times the amount of time it should have taken. she had hoped to pick her car up during lunch, but had to inconvenience a coworker for a ride after work. Mostly, though, she felt completely taken advantage of. We found out later that an average price for such a service is around $250. When she showed up at the service center she was given a bill for over $500!! After arguing the bill she was given $50 off. Looking closer at the bill there were miscellaneous parts that I'm sure were inflated dramatically and then a flat charge of $299.99 for a technician. The oil change had it's own separate charge so the tech fee must have been for the air cleaner and a few other trivial maintenance items that were supposedly completed. $500 is a major repair bill for a car and any upstanding service center would at least call afterwards or notify you on dropoff how much the service was going to be before doing the work. We would have never agreed to that. She chose Mike Shaw because it’s closer to home but won’t make that mistake again.
