    I am PISSED!!!

    So had the wife take the ESV down to LES SCHWAB to have the tires rotated and balanced as we are leaving for a 2500 mile round trip vacation to california next week and will be gone for 2 weeks. She texted me and sends me a pic of our lug cover and its BROKEN!!! Our Escalade is a platinum edition with the factory 20"s and the hard to find center caps that seem to get stolen from what I gather. I AM PISSED!! they said they will replace it but they are hard to find. I dont know what to do!!!1

    Nothing.

    Have them call the dealer and replace it. End of story.

    Re: I am PISSED!!!

    I get that. They said they would TRY and find a replacement but couldnt guarantee it. I will stop by the dealer tomorrow and see if they are even order-able anymore. Trust me they will be replacing it. Its just this week has a holiday and we leave on Monday! They are going to pay for an overnight delivery if they locate one. My wife said they all were messing around and not paying attention to what they were doing. Kinda like state workers. 4 watching while one working. All the time there was 5 other cars waiting to come in and they closed at 6pm. Sorry just venting!

    Sounds to me like that dealer needs reporting as that's not the way my local dealer is
    I hope they do you right

    I will be calm. I just want to talk to the manager and see what he has to say. I found 2 places on line and one is actually down in chino california which is where we are heading and they have them in stock. So i have it on the work order that they would replace it so we should be ok. I want them to have it over nighted so we have it before we leave. It just pisses me off because the guy i talked to that was the one that broke it (not the manager) was a dick! Thats what set me off. Then when my wife got home and told me what and how he was talking to her it made it sound like it was her fault. This tire shop is usually great with customer service and goes above and beyond to make the customer happy. Its company policy. So when this all happened it just set me off. Ill keep this updated.

    You may wish to check your lug nut torq.
    Nothing worse than being stranded with a lug nut torqued to 200ft pounds or a cross treaded frozen lug nut.
    Reads like time to find another tire shop.
    I had to fire one awhile back.
    Went to pull a tire and they had cross treaded the lug nut on.
    When I tried to remove the lug nut it I snapped the stud off.
    I took it back and had them repair there mistake and have never returned.

    Just don't get arrested its not worth that

    I felt the same way when my truck was in for a PCM replacement
    Even though I told them exactly what was wrong they didn't believe me

    So I wait a day or two to check on it(plus I had to see if I had left something in the truck) so I check on the truck to find the knee bloster and bezel removed from the dash and my hvac controls removed(I almost went nuts) and then seen they had the engine covers off and I was like wtf

    I asked the service manager why they had my truck torn apart and he said they was checking the wiring I told him I never had a issue with the wiring
    But they put it back together and replaced the PCM with my guidance
    But ever since the bezel has a rattle at times and one of the lights quit on the hvac controls( did before they messed with it)
    I did complain and they haven't done anything without telling me first
    I got new wipers not long after and the service manager put them on for me no hassle

    Just work with the upper level person and they should take care of you but I would start looking for a different tire shop just in case

    I got a call from the tire center manager and was told they have the new center cap. They got it from the dealer as there supplier didnt have any. So the wifey is picking up after work. So this makes me happy. I will though be buying another set while down in cali just incase i need them. Now we are ready to take the escalade on a much needed vacation.


    Happy fourth to everyone.
