    I'll kick it off! Have I told you how much I hate scummy (insert other brand name here!) dealer parts departments
  • elc3295521 Jul 2024 20:35
    Caught a scam on EBAY last week. A (insert other brand name here!) dealer parts department outside of Milwaukee, WI selling on EBAY.
  • elc3295521 Jul 2024 20:36
    They were selling parts mfd. by (XXXX) that are sold in plastic bag packs, 5 parts in a bag, 10 parts in a bag, etc.....
  • elc3295521 Jul 2024 20:37
    Well, the trick is that you purchased a stock OEM bag of parts sold by (XXXX) 5 to a bag, two to a bag, etc.... by factory part number.

    So, the selling dealer parts department is opening the factory bags, taking out all but ONE part, resealing it, and selling it under the original part number. So if you bought a bag normally containing 10 washers, they mailed you a factory bag with.... surprise.... ONE washer!
  • elc3295521 Jul 2024 20:39
    Then if you complained they told you "Well sir, you were just buying one piece". Whilst showing pictures of a bag with 10 washers in it. SCUMBAGS!

    I lit their rotund round heinies up with a US FTC complaint. I am SO tempted to out their asses on DealerRater. Like 18 separate negative feedbacks for the practice on EBAY. But, they sell so many parts that it doesn't impact their average much.

    I got burned like that buying turbo oil feed filters. Bought a pack of two filters since the car had two turbos. They sliced my bag open, removed a filter, resealed it. and shipped it. GRRRRRR......
