About 6 weeks ago I submitted documentation regarding the extensive repairs I had to do on my 1996 Chevrolet Tahoe. However, I have not received anything on the matter. At this time I would like to know if the paperwork was received, if there is a number I should call to follow up or is there another way I can check on the status of complaint. Thanks for any assistance.
