… The Boutique Bug saga continues with Hyundai Gateway… I took my bug in last Friday to be cured of the problems that had arisen since the service 2 weeks before. They had it the whole day – it was a mission organising lifts, etc. I fetched it, got in, and it was EXACTLY THE SAME! ARGH!!! And in fact it was worse, because suddenly my central locking started playing up and the driver’s seat was stuck! I almost had an apoplexy!!! Long story short, they said they’d order the part to fix the central locking and would phone me, likely on Monday, so I could bring my car in for a third time! Eh! And then, silence, Monday came and went, Tuesday came and went, I intended to phone on Wednesday but was busy, so Wednesday came and went and by Wednesday night, I couldn’t even manually lock my car anymore…
So this morning I drove to Hyundai Gateway, in my gym clothes, no makeup, and went into full crazy bitch mode on their asses! People that know me, try and avoid crazy bitch mode at all costs because I’m particularly good at it!!! Personally I think I have been unbelievable patient, unusually so actually, maybe gym has calmed me 🙂 What’s even more scary is rational and quiet crazy bitch mode, which I then went into… after my little tirade I stormed off to the gym on foot, punished a few weights, despite having not eaten since yesterday afternoon, and then walked back to the dealership…
Funny story, my car was in the wash bay and supposedly all fixed! So in 3 hours they achieved what they had been unable to do in 2 full days! I got in the bug, started it up, and purrrrrr …. she purred like the kitty she always was … not the the chocking goat she had become since my service a month ago! And the central locking was fixed! Blow me down!
Now the kicker, I get to the office and actually look at the work sheet thing and you won’t believe it … it says the following:
1. Replaced front right door actuator. (This fixed the central locking)
2. Reset adaptive values, removed cigarette butt that was stuck in idle speed actuator. (WTF!!!!)
!!!!!!!!!!!!! Kid you not !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So obviously, some technician smoked and flicked his cigarette butt in my frigging engine when it went in for the service and it’s taken them a month to figure it out!!!!!!!!! IDIOTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
