Woke to rude awakening recently as I walked to my parked RSX recently.
Passenger window completely smashed in overnight. Worthless property
on floor behind passeneger seat stolen. Since car's fairly new, still
would rather have dealership fix it. Originally the estimate to
replace window was (ball parked here) around $600 overall.
Then, I gotta call a day later saying that "rotors" or "rollers" were
bent and needed replacement too. I don't remember which was uttered
being that I was in kind of a shock over the additional cost. Now the
price to fix is up to around (again ball parked), $850-$900.
Mechanic says fallen glass could have been the culprit that "bent"
them, but he couldn't say for sure. I can say for sure that the glass
was completely gone, and I didn't touch the motor to run window up or
down. The vertical plastic strip above the door handle was pried up
some, but didn't look all that violently compromised.
My question is this: is something "bent" within the door possible
here? Or is the dealership just trying to jack up the cost here? I'm
admittedly not super knowledgable on the subject, but from the
evidence I could see, these losers grabbed the first thing they saw
and dashed since likely the alarm went off. There was likely not much
else likely touched.
I really like this dealership, and it would kill me to think they're
being opportunistic here.
Anybody have a clue?
