Shop butchers 2007 Vibe

Well this is a doozy story. So my girlfriend tells me last month she wants to get rid of the 2003 Aztek maintenance nightmare and get a new car. I was excited and told her to go for it. So we head down to the dealer to look at an 07 Vibe. This was a nicely equipped vibe, with the exception of a few thing. Sliding power moonroof, power windows, doors, keyless entry and tint. I don't blame her as the Aztek had those options. We tell the sales man we want those factory options. Which total near 2500 or so dollars. He says we would have to wait 2-3 months to get a car from the factory like that. We were willing to wait but he said they have a shop that does this JUST LIKE THE FACTORY. Wow sounds awesome and we can take delivery in a week. The car came in at 29,000 and change.

When we get the car back... well... you judge for yourself in the pics. There were scratches on near every surface, dash, door skins, you name it. All from metal tools you can tell. The sunroof install was a joke, I could get my entire hand under the trim. There were bubbles in ALL the window tint. They even used a pair of pliers or vice grips to get the rear hatch window off then tried to hide the damage with permanent marker haha... What douchebags. Basically Auto Trim in Pinetree near New Glasgow BUTCHERED THIS CAR. I wouldn't recommend them for anything. They tried to armor all the scratches and couldn't even do that right, what a joke.

To make a long story short after a month long battle we made the dealer take the car back and return the Aztek at no cost to my girlfriend. Keep in mind this was a brand new car with 70KMs on it when they got their hands on it. To top it all off the dealer paid the bill in full to Auto Trash.
