About 2 months ago, my truck's battery died. I had to get it jumped and then dropped off at the dealer for the day, and they said I needed a new battery, and they wanted to charge me $150 for one. Well, instead I got one done somewhere else cheaper. About 2 weeks ago, it died again! I had to get it towed to the dealer, then a rental car for the day and the cost of looking at it and then fixing it was $180. I, and everyone I talked to, figured it was the alternator. Well, it turns out, it was the battery again, not the alternator at all, and the dealer said the battery place I got it from installed it incorrectly and the battery drained. My question is, would you think the battery place should reimburse me the $180, since it was technically their fault it happened? I called them and told them what happened and immediatley the guy was a jerk to me and I was being really nice, so I think he's going to give me problems when I go in. He said dealers make up stuff so they look bad. I can't imagine this is true, he probably just doesn't want to reimburse me. I am taking a male friend of mine when I go there so he can talk to the guy cuz he already treated me like the "dumb woman." Hopefully he'll treat my friend better and give in and reimburse me! What do you think?
