Re: Reliable LT repair, non-dealer in Phoenix
thank you for ypur time posting and suggestions
Local dealership is a place I avoid for repairs. they were doing some work on my LT and needed to order a part. But, they waited until the part arrived to then put my bike back into line to be worked on. end result was 5 weeks to repair which I though was un-necessarily long, especially after pointing out to them that I had to rent a car since LT is my only transportation--deaf ears.
Plus, while it was there I wanted them to dis-embowel her and see if any seals had to be replaced since she had been weeping oil, drops comming out of the bell housing, for a few years. Answer was "NO. don't want to tie up the work space!"
when I got my bike back I noticed I was charged for 7 spark plugs? first time I went on a ride where I could use the cruise controll it didn't work. when I called the dealership to see if they were any where's near throttle cables they denied working near them. Months later while in Maine I spent hours and hours and hours trying to adjust the CC, no avail.
I solved the problem when I installed new cables and discovered that one of the cables had been tied off in the wrong place. Hence the CC didn't work and there wasn't any way of adjusting it so it would work.
Net result, won't consider any repairs at local dealership.
