Good morning guys, hope you’re well. I had a problem with my car (BMW 116i 2006) of overheating then I took it for service at Protec Auto (Bosch Service) Kempton Park on the 19/09/2017. I spoke to Mr Peter Louw, they diagnosed the car and gave me a quotation (Johanna Cilo). On the 20th, in the afternoon when I was supposed to take a car, they called me and said the car is fine but doesn't have power and problem is timing. Then I said because you diagnosed a car yesterday, why didn't you...

I took the car back to the dealership and this time the Area Manager had to intervene. After he inspected the car, he told me the rust is as a result of...

On the 05/07/2017 I had a battery fitted to my VW Touareg at Battery Centre in Benoni. Shortly after the batter kept going flat, and it was determined by VW East Rand Mall that the wrong battery had been fitted. A 90 amp batter was installed instead of a 110 amp. I contacted the fitment centre, and was told that a replacement battery would be ordered, and exchanged. Today I got a call from a worker at the fitment centre, informing me that they cannot get the correct battery, and that I...

I bought a brand new Renault Sandero Expression on 25/04/2017 and the vehicle was delivered to me without a spare key.I was promised the key will be ordered and the process was going to take two weeks.It is now the fifth month and to date I have not received the spare key. NB:I keep on running a risk of driving a car without a spare key.This is surely a bad service from this dealership and I am very much aggrieved by this kind of service.

I was then phoned to say that the engine needed to be replaced and he found me an engine for R18 000, which only had 90 000km on. Engine was fitted. Two months later, and the engine packed up.

I took delivery of a new Ford Mustang on 7 September 2017. From the moment I left the floor, the air conditioner was not working. I therefore had to take it back the next day, and after hours spent the problem could still not be identified, so I left with the air conditioner still not working. Today, 11 September, it is back with Ford Lazarus. I am baffled why a brand new flagship vehicle (or any vehicle for that matter) can be given to a client with a faulty air conditioner.
