Called me. Offered a 'courtesy' of $100 !!!!!!
I refused it because:
1- I am not looking for any courtesy... i am looking for a my right to have my money back!
2- I paid around $580 to replace the oil pan and change the oil. Not a freaking $100
I am taking this to the biggest newspaper in San Diego. Even though im probably not getting my money back anymore, i want to warn people so they dont to get ripped off by those crooks.

They kept stalling by emails for a month. Then all the emails stopped and they are totally ignoring me now!
They'd said they're gonna 'investigate', delegate to local Sears in San Diego, and similar empty promises emails.
I was told to wait 48-72 business (HOURS)... which is almost two *** weeks... besides, i've never heard of this timeline anyway! business hours!!!!!
this is just one more reason i think they are stalling me and thinking i will eventually give up and go away.... little do they know :\

Today, i found out from my mechanic that the solution is to replace the oil pan, and that would cost $530+tax!!!! and i know that he charges really cheap labor compared to other mechanics.
If Sears does not cover this, i am definitely going to start a complaint with BBB.org

I have been going t this place for my periodic oil change for my 04 ford mustang. I thought a decent dealership would be a quality worth the money i pay them.
Last year when i got my car, before i left the parking lot the heat jumped up and i returned immediately to them. They said they didnt have anything to do with it and brushed me off. I took my car to a mechanic and fixed it out of my pocket for over $300. The big mistake i made was to return back for my next oil change thinking that what happened was just a coincident.
Today, after they called me to pick up my car after the oil change, they told me that i need to change the oil pan! because when they unscrewed the pan to drain the oil, the screw was too tight from the last time it was opened and it broke the pan!!!! LAST TIME THEY WERE THE ONES THAT CHANGED THE OIL. NO ONE ELSE!
They told me to fixes it ASAP. i took the car home, an hour later i wanted to leave home and the screw was on the ground with whatever oil was in the engine. This is a major ripoff and i am definitely gonna go back to talk to their manager. One thing i know is, I am never going back to this shithole rippoff place
Monetary Loss: $400.
