I simply asked that they reinstall it. Matt claims that the technician "didn't see anything wrong." Well he must not be a very good technician if he can't spot the asymmetry between the 2 flaps with 1 missing and tucked up. My maintenance/oil change was complete, so let it go (shouldn't have).
That seems like a communication problem, or a disconnect happened somewhere. I assume you pointed out the air dam/plastic flap? Did you check on it after you picked your car up?

They want ~$340 (I can do it for $43). Partially my fault for misunderstanding maintenance vs. warranty, but I guess I'm becoming my own mechanic again.
I don't understand why they should remind you that your maintenance has expired. Shouldn't that be up to you to know?

And no, extended 6 yrs/100K never covered maintenance. That's a separate plan which you have to purchase.

Either way, sorry for your experience, but Matt Juliar has been a stand up guy and great with customers. Rich is awesome too.

Anyways, Matt Juliar has left FFX and is now at BMW of Sterling.

Doesn't matter what team Rich is on, only he touches my car. The SA's know that and will coordinate accordingly. At least for me they do.
