A Complaint & Response.. Published as Requested by Client

Sometimes you just can’t win. We offer a very professional and honest service at Swansea Tyre, Clutch & MOT Centre. Sometimes things don’t always go to plan, but when presented with facts, we do our best to put things right.

The problem is, other garages or specialists will give opinion on work carried out by another garage and will offer unfounded advice or opinion on a repair or adjustment performed by a competitor.

We don’t get many complaints, and we always try to ensure that any client is happy, however sometimes you get someone who wants to threaten with Trading Standards, Social Media and Review Sites. Even though you are obviously trying your best to make sure their complaint is being handled in the most professional way.

It is important to understand that Swansea Tyre Clutch & MOT Centre will always do what we can to avoid rubbishing or passing comment on repairs or adjustments made by our competitors (unless blatant rip off or dangerous practices have been performed).

Below is a complaint from a client who had a free alignment check performed and then an adjustment using our 3D wheel alignment machine (charged at £59.98 for 4 wheels). What is confusing, is why would another company check the alignment after we had, & NOT fix the issue TWICE? If someone came to our business and their wheel alignment was out, we would print off the findings and present it to the client, who would then be given the opportunity to have the adjustment corrected.

Given this, we would gladly refund the client if they could present this evidence to us. Unfortunately saying “Someone else says you are wrong and if you don’t give me my money back I’ll go to Trading Standards & Social Media” is not enough. Anyway, you make your own mind up! This has been published here as requested by the complainant in his last paragraph. Just to prove we ARE honest, competent and professional. We have omitted the gentleman’s name and contact details but everything else is exactly copied and pasted.

Dear Mr Pallister
I am writing as I intend to make a formal complaint about the poor service I have received from your company swansea tyres Ltd.  On 3/5/17 I brought my vehicle a vw passat into swansea tyres to have a wheel alignment service on my vehicle, customer service made an error with my booking and as a result I had to wait three hours for the job to be completed, and payed £59.98 for the service.
However when I returned home i examined the alignment printout and noticed that the left front wheel camber was still not aligned.
So the next day I took the print out to a different tyre specialist who confirmed that indeed the alignment was still out and had not been done properly.
On 5/5/17 I called swansea tyres and spoke to Mr Pallister who said to return the vehicle the next day to give his perspective on the results.
The next day I telephoned swansea tyres Ltd and was informed Mr Pallister would not be in the garage that day. An appointment was made for the next week which was then cancelled by swansea tyres Ltd because the wheel alignment equipment was faulty. A new appointment was made and two weeks later 25/5/17 I returned my vehicle to Swansea tyres Ltd to have the alignment corrected. After an hour I was informed my vehicle had been corrected but couldn’t have a printout showing the results as the printer was broken but if there was any problems then I should return the vehicle to swanse tyres.
While driving my vehicle after leaving the workshop i noticed my vehicle was still veering to the left, so I contacted Mr Pallister who informed me that the alignment had been done correctly and it was probably the tyres. After being told the printer is not working i suspected swansea tyres were not being truthfull so the next day 26/5/17 I took my vehicle to a tyre specialist for a alignment test which confirmed that the alignment on my vehicle was still incorrect.
I feel Swansea tyres Ltd have been dishonest, unprofessional and incompetent. I have given Swansea tyres Ltd the chance to correct the original alignment service but they instead chose to try to mislead me. Therefore I am seeking a full refund of £59.98 and will consider contacting trading standards. I also feel that my experience be shown on my review of swansea tyres Ltd to warn other customers who are contemplating using your service. I have wasted four hours of my time due to your incompetence and do not wish to waste any more.
Yours sincerely
Our Response

Mr H******d,

Firstly please let me apologise for your delayed first appointment. I have checked the CCTV system and the booking system. It seems you were with us for just over 2 hours on the 3rd May, which is much longer than you should have been. As with any busy and popular garage workshop, sometimes jobs over-run and can take longer than expected. However, your vehicle had a 4 wheel alignment service which takes roughly 90 minutes to perform.

Additionally, you should have been informed why the camber adjustment wasn’t made. We always adjust camber (when possible) within our service. I can only assume as I reply to your email, that this was not able to be adjusted on your vehicle otherwise it would have been, however I will look into this post haste.

I understand you have taken your vehicle to another “tyre specialist” and they informed you that the wheel alignment hadn’t been performed correctly. Can I ask who this specialist is? Did they give you any printout showing the vehicle “incorrectly aligned?” Also, why they didn’t put it right?

Our wheel alignment equipment was not faulty. We have it periodically inspected and calibrated to ensure that it is completely correct. When the alignment machine is due calibration, or if we receive a complaint, we cancel all alignment services until the machine is fully checked. Our machine was fully checked and was proven to be completely calibrated and within tolerance (we also have a current calibration certificate).

When you returned for a FREE second alignment and adjustment, our printer was indeed out of order but I explained to you that the machine has a memory, so we are able to print historic alignments out and I would ensure there is a copy for you. Your vehicles alignment w

Our 30 inch display showing wheel alignment

as also displayed on a 30 inch screen in the reception area in direct line of  where you were sitting, and you were shown the calibration of your wheel alignment. I also instructed my staff to replace the printer immediately.

When you were in our reception, I asked you to take the vehicle for a good drive up and down Fabian Way (some 2 miles) and asked you to return immediately if there were any issues. You didn’t come back, so I assumed you were finally happy. When you called again, I asked you why you didn’t return and were informed it didn’t fit in with your other appointments. I then explained that if your vehicle has been fully aligned then there must be another issue and suggested you return to have your tyres looked at and possibly swapped from left to right (free of charge) to see if this either solves your issue or moves the veering to the other side (which would indicate a tyre issue). To date, you have not returned. I note, you have been to ANOTHER “tyre specialist” for an alignment check. Can I ask, have they put the vehicle right? Do you have a print out from them showing your vehicle alignment incorrect?

Your opinion of our business being “dishonest, unprofessional & incompetent” aside, I am happy to give you a full and final refund of your money. I will be happy to refund you in person at the workshop. When would be good for you to pop in and see me? I will of course expect to see the print outs from your other tyre specialist showing your alignment to be set up incorrectly, as this is the foundation of your complaint and you have stated that you have been given this information.

Please be aware, that any company offering wheel alignment can only warranty an alignment check for the period the vehicle leaves the workshop, this is due to the fact that drivers can leave a workshop with a perfectly aligned vehicle, drive into a pot hole in the road or clip a kerb within 1 mile of the workshop and suddenly, the alignment is out again. This is not just our company, but industry wide policy as it is impossible to know drivers habits. However, we are happy to offer the full alignment cost refund assuming you have the printouts showing the time-stamp with the dates you have mentioned in your complaint.

I am happy to publish your complaint & review, and my response on our blog and in any publication you choose, I am also happy to talk to Trading Standards, including any inspection or investigation they wish to pursue.

As ever, if there is anything more we can do, including the opportunity for you to watch ANOTHER FREE alignment check and adjustment (if needed) then I am happy to offer this (as well as the full refund as mentioned before).

Kind regards

Engine Carbon Clean – Engine Detox

Engine Carbon Clean

Engine Carbon Clean – Engine Detox

Ok, well we have all heard it. Have your vehicle engine carbon clean done and you will save money, your vehicle will be faster. Give it an engine detox and you will notice immediate improvement blah blah blah!

We are now completely converted! We have been performing engine carbon clean and engine detox services for the past month or so, and we are now speaking to people who have had the service with us and they are absolutely astounded by the change in their vehicles.

Below, we have taken a few examples of the vehicles we are talking about, the service we have performed for them and what they have experienced since the carbon clean and detox service:

BMW 116 2006 90,000 miles (Petrol)

Engine Carbon Clean

BMW 116 Having an Engine Carbon Clean

Service Received = Engine Detox (EDT)

This involves a full TEC4 Engine Flush being added to the vehicle. The vehicle was then run for 15 minutes to get to temperature. We then drained the vehicle conventionally. The next step was to hook the vehicle to our EDT machine. This pulses refined engine oil through the oil system at 40 degrees centigrade at 40 psi in a pulsing motion. This effectively removes all carbon buildup and debris from the engine over the 90,000 mile lifecycle it has already had. We then replaced the oil filter and filled with the correct grade of oil.

Immediate Result

Car started and just “sounded different” (Customers words) the vehicle didn’t have the normal metalic sound from the top of the engine you get from BMWs of a certain age. The car seemed to rev freely and the slight smoke that was there before now gone.

Road Test

(We sent the client out on the road test before charging him and told him not to come back and pay if there wasn’t a significant change in the vehicle)

Client returned and said this exactly….

“Oh my god! I didn’t know my car was even that bad until I had this done!” 

The car is MUCH more responsive and now “just feels different, it seems much more powerful and is so much quieter than I am used to! It’s like a new car!”

Needless to say, the client was very happy to pay for his Engine Carbon Clean! 

Mercedes Benz C-Class 2.1 89,000 miles (Diesel)

Engine Carbon Clean on Mercedes

Engine Detox (EDT) on Mercedes at Swansea Tyre Clutch & MOT Centre

Service Received = Engine Detox (EDT) and DPF Clean

This vehicle came in with a DPF issue where the DPF would keep filling and getting blocked. The client had gone to different garages who had advised that he was just doing too much local journeys etc. We decided to investigate the issue a little further. Firstly, we cleaned the DPF using our Tec4 machine and performed a forced regeneration of the diesel particulate filter. This cleared the DPF light on the dashboard. When the DPF is forced into regeneration, it can reach working temperatures of over 600 degrees C. This can have adverse effects on the engine oil as the vehicle runs a lot hotter than if the regeneration is an active/passive regeneration. It is essential to change the oil with a quality flush if you are going to force a vehicle into regeneration. At Swansea Tyre, Clutch & MOT Centre we go one step further.. We wash the oil system and polish it!

Once we were sure the DPF was fully clear and the measured soot content was near 0%, we started the Engine Carbon Clean and Engine Detox treatment. First the Tec4 oil system cleaner was added to the oil, the vehicle was then run for 15 minutes for the flush to break down the carbon and debris and hold it in suspension. We then drained the oil and attached our EDT Engine Carbon Clean and Detox machine. Again, refined oil was pulsed through the oil system at 40 psi and 40 degrees centigrade (the process is about 30 minutes long once the machine had performed its cycles). Once fully clean, the oil filter was replaced and the correct oil filled.

Immediate Result

Again, the engine just sounded different, there was no blue smoke as we had seen before from the exhaust and the engine was noticeably quieter than before. When the vehicle was revved, it seemed to rev a lot more freely and we noticed the idle speed had increased by 100-150 revs per minute.

Road Test

Taking into account that we had not had the opportunity to drive the car any considerable distance as it was permanently in limp mode with a DPF light on, we noticed that the vehicle drove amazingly well and seemed very responsive. There were no lights on the dashboard now and the cabin was very quiet. We decided to let the owner take the car for a spin as he knew the vehicle a lot better than we did. Upon the owners return into the reception, he could not hide his smile.. It seems we did it again! The words from the owner were “quite simply excellent” he was very happy with the result and was a bit apprehensive when we mentioned the Engine Carbon Clean and Engine Detox Service, but he too is now converted and said he would have the EDT every time he had his service carried out!

The owner returned a couple of days later to inform us that he was experiencing about 10% increase in MPG as well! So we were all very happy with that result!

We Are South West Wales Only EDT Engine Detox Service Centre!

South Wales Engine Detox Service Centre

Approved EDT Automotive Partner

Swansea Tyre Clutch & MOT Centre are proud to announce that we are now South West Wales’s only EDT Automotive Engine Detox Service Centre. As of today we are able to offer your vehicle the ultimate in detox and decontamination services anywhere in South West Wales!

Together with EDT Automotive we are bringing the ultimate in engine detox technology! Our EDT system will clear your engines oil system of all carbon and harmful deposits left behind when a normal oil change is performed. We force-feed refined oils through your vehicles lubrication system dislodging all debris and carbon deposit build up. This is then collected in a filtration system in our machine. The result is a clean, polished and thoroughly rejuvenated engine.

Test Vehicle

To put the EDT system to a real test we decided to try in on our 230,000 mile fuel recovery vehicle. We thought this would be the ultimate test as our vehicle regularly carries 1/2 ton of equipment and mixed fuel and also covers somewhere in the region of 500 miles on a daily basis draining vehicles with wrong fuel in up and down the M4.

Our Van on the EDT Detox Machine

MAN we were surprised! We drained the vehicle using a TEC4 oil flush (this is a fantastic flush which does a fantastic job). We then hooked up our new EDT machine and started the detox process. What we saw blew us away (check out the video). The glass filtration tube suddenly filled up with black carbon filled deposit! We let the system do its cycles (15 minutes) then disconnected the machine, put a new oil filter on and refilled with oil.

Immediate Improvement

Once full with the correct oil, we started the vehicle. To our amazement we found the engine to be MASSIVELY quieter and smoother. There wasn’t the normal old diesel sound which we had become used to hearing from our very high mileage, abused little van! Then there was the free-revving, it was like the engine was new! Immediate response from the throttle and it seemed to be idling much better than it usually does!

Test Drive

We took the little van out for a test drive on the motorway. We thought a good measure was to drive to Bridgend and back (about a 30 mile trip) on the way to the M4 we had a call out in Barry. We thought we would just drive there to help the client out. When we got to the client we were embarrassed as we realised the little vans waste fuel tank was in fact full. Why is this so important to know? Well, we were so surprised with the response of the vehicle, we didn’t even realise that the 330L (about 1/3 of a ton) of mixed fuel was still in the back! The van was pulling so well, we thought that the fuel tank in the back must be empty! We managed to drain some of our fuel into the jerry cans we hold in the van, get the client fully drained and made our way back to the workshop. Once at the workshop, we drained the fuel tank and took the van for another spin. The improvement was absolutely astonishing! Our little van now pulls hard in EVERY gear and is so much better on fuel! As a mechanic, you are taught that no additive or wonder solution will fix your problem. You are taught to strip, clean and rebuild. We are now converted! We will never just flush and drain any of our own vehicles again!

The Final Test

engine detox after results

Look how clean the oil is after 84 miles and 2 hours of engine running!

Our final test to see just how good this service is, was to check the dipstick. Now, we had driven 84.4 miles, left the van running whilst we drained the disabled vehicle and then left the van running whilst we drained our tank on board of waste fuel. In total, the engine had been running for over 2 and a half hours! We then checked the dip stick to see the colour of the oil…. We were blown away! The oil was as clear as when we had first put it in! Remember, this is a 230,000 mile engine, which has been pulling over 1/3 of a ton of mixed fuel plus 1/4 ton of fuel drain equipment (plus 2 large fitters) over 84 miles and been running for over 2 hours!

The Offer

We are now taking bookings for your complete engine detox service!

As of today, we are taking bookings for April (as we are already nearly fully booked for March!) If you book your engine detox with us, we will perform a FREE TEC4 Carbon Clean at the same time!
