The contact owns a 2002 Volkswagen Cabrio. On August 29, 2017, the vehicle was taken to the dealer (david maus Volkswagen, 1050 lee rd, orlando, fl 32810) for routine maintenance. The contact returned on September 13, 2017 to retrieve the vehicle and noticed that the air conditioner was no longer working. The contact informed the technician that the air conditioner was not working like it was before the routine maintenance was performed. The vehicle was left at the dealer for another day to find out what was causing the failure. The following day, the dealer diagnosed that there was a blockage that caused the failure and would cost approximately $400 to repair. The contact stated that the staff became very aggressive. The contact requested to have a second opinion from an independent mechanic, for which a letter had to be written and approved by the service director. The contact was informed that the request was denied. The manufacturer was contacted and did not assist. The vehicle had not been removed from the dealer since August 29, 2017. There were no recalls associated with the VIN. The failure mileage was 44,375.

The passenger side window would not roll up. I was told it was the window regulator. It completely failed once it broke and the window remained open. The consequences are no security and unsafe. This week the driver's side window did the same thing after I paid for the passenger side to be repaired.
