  • When will customers get a public say on how poor the service is. 4 days to get a truck looked at over at KW Stoney Creek. They don’t know what service or how to value your time only their time. Horrible way to operate.
    Call ahead to book an appointment 5 days prior, arrive only to find the service counter still had to write up the work order and put the truck in line for warranty work for later that day. Why make an appointment, and what a useless service desk.
