John Elway Chevrolet - Incorrectly fitted and crushed Oil filter

Update added by user Feb 17, 2015

John Elway Chevrolet has written a letter indicating that if my car suffers and engine problem during its Hyundai warranty period and Hyundai does not cover. John Elway Chevrolet will cover the engine at their expense.

I in turn must have all my oils changes performed at an authorized Hyundai dealer.

I must also indicate my satisfaction on this and other review sites.

"Incorrectly installed and crushed oil filter"

John Elway Chevrolet Service performed a pre delivery oil and filter change November 2014.

I phoned him Feb 6th I spoke with Chris and Josh. They asked if they could phone me Feb 7th which they did but needed to speak with someone else so can they phone me Feb 9th.

John Elway Chevrolet told me that they would not do this. But they would buy my car back and they would keep the dealer fees and sales tax etc. I don't believe I should lose money, I never asked for money from John Elway Chevrolet just some assurance that the Incorrect work they had done does not affect the life my engine during the warranty period as Hyundai Dealer has recorded the incorrectly fitted and crushed filter in my records. If I could post photographs and my Invoice on the review I would
