I already gave my wife half of her Christmas presents. She doesn't know they were for Christmas, I told her they were "just because" gifts. Giving unexpected gifts is my favorite thing about Christmas. 

 

Of course...I got her some more stuff after I gave her the original gifts.

That's exactly what I think every time somebody posts a TJ Maxx or Marshalls SC score: None of 'em that I've visited here in Utah carry suits or sport coats. I have picked up rather inexpensive Zegna and Pucci ties at TJ Maxx here however.

1. Asked to speak with the manager. After explaining the situation, I would have given them a chance to make it right, i.e., take the $65 electronically. What you were told is, I suspect, a total crock in this day and age--heck, you could've used Western Union (they still exist, incredibly). If the manager still said no, I would have, politely, told him that my next call was going to be to Nissan America (or whatever they call company HQ), and then the state attorney general's consumer protection division and then the media, in that order. I would also offer to pay an extra $10, bringing it up to $75, for his consideration.
2. If the manager did not make it right, at that point I would get angry, I would have done what you did and picked up the car myself, then I would have asked to speak with the manager in person.If the jurisdiction in question allows single-party consent, I would record that conversation, as well as the previous conversation I had with the manager.
3. I would file a complaint with the state AG. I would call the local newspaper. If you were able to make tape recordings, I would get in touch with Nissan America and email the recordings to the appropriate person. At this point, I would demand all of my money back, given that they forced you to make that drive. If they did not refund the money, I would post the recordngs, if you have them, on YouTube along with a description of exactly what they did.
4. When the repair was complete, and assuming it was way less than what the dealer quoted you, I would get in touch with the media (preferably a TV station---they love consumer protection pieces, and pitch them a story about the Nissan dealer who held your car hostage, complete with receipts and recordings (if you have them). Make sure that Nissan America (or whoever it is) knows that you are going to do this before you do it. They may be able to had things off at the pass.
The deal is, most folks, understandably, cave in situations like this because it involves persistence and takes a little time. But, once they understand they're dealing with someone who has a few brain cells and who is articulate and who explains the way this is going to work in a calm, cool tone, they very often will do the right thing because the potential consequences aren't worth it. You don't yell, you remain the epitome of business like and hope that they do the same.

what are you, a socialist? if the nissan dealership wants to charge $900 for a $200 job THAT'S THEIR RIGHT IN THIS COUNTRY. if they don't want to take payments over the phone and possibly lose business THAT'S THEIR RIGHT IN THIS COUNTRY. it's called capitalism. and guess what, IT'S YOUR RIGHT TO TAKE YOUR BUSINESS ELSEWHERE NEXT TIME.

jeez, the amount of entitlement in this country is amazing. i don't like the price they quoted me, so THE GOVERNMENT NEEDS TO SAVE ME. i don't like their payment options SO THE GOVERNMENT NEEDS TO SAVE ME.

However, it tends to get no love on the secondary market because of what the brand has become. If you can kop for a good price and it is a staple, say a vintage down vest or a parka, then go ahead, but you will not likely realize a huge return. If it is something weird along the lines of down with a wool-blanket liner, it would probably be a tough flip, even though the quality is high. Along the same lines, I recently sold two down parkas, one by LL Bean of relatively recent vintage and made in Thailand--it said down, but you could feel feathers. The other was a vintage REI that was by far the superior coat. The Bean went for slightly less than $100. The REI, which had no country of origin tag, went for $60, and there is no way I would have sold it if it had fit--I would've sold my brown-label NF first. Some guy in Russia ended up with it, and I'm guessing he's laughing his ass all the way to the Kremlin.


+1 on some EB outerwear. My trench coat is exactly the same as the one found minus the zip out liner.

Fair enough, but your "is this a good brand" radar is batting 1000. Like, you're not asking "Hey, is Bert Pulitzer a good brand for ties" or "Is Hathaway a good brand for shirts" or "Hey, these Savanes are made in Italy". You're nailing it every time. So we're understandably a little suspicious.

Plus the fact that he's found more Brioni, Hermes, and Zilli in one trip than I've found in over a year.

Is it stitched with Norwegian virgin model pubes? The one I found was.
