problem #1

Dec 222001


  • miles
When I reported that the chirping/squeaking sound had returned (around the engine belts) to the service dept. At sheehy Nissan in annapolis, the service person (mary) said that, if we can't recreate the sound the mechanic can't fix it. I proceeded to tell her to look at her data base for Dec 2001, and she would see that it has been only a month and the sound is back, but intermitent, and the service manager-zeek knew what it was after they had changed out the (2) defective senor recall. She got impatient and repeated the same again to me, about recreating the sound. Not being very educated or patient with customers, but rude, only served to upset me further about this vehicle and the complacent attitude I was up against. I thought, I would hate to think what would happen to me if one of those belts gave out. Its my life, not mary'. I also told her when the belts make that sound, the engine hestitates. This made no difference to this "service expert."
