bad service

After replacement of 4 tires by my 2007 Murano in Sears Auto Center in Hackensack NJ, at 11/22/2013, / see ref.num. WO6411134/, next day I found that pressure in one tire /back, right / goes down.
At December 02/2013 I returned to Auto Center to fix problem. The manager explained to me that the valve TPMS sensor is broken and has to be replaced / see invoice # 446104 from 12/02/ 2013/.
I understood, I shouldn’t to pay for installation of the new valve, as a result of replacement of the tire.
Old valve TPMS worked normally since January 2008, when I bought a car.

My question: Why you charge me for this valve ? Your manager Phil couldn’t explain it.
I was forced to pay $67.40 to receive the car’s keys.

Please, check this case and return me $67.40.

  1. The TPMS valve assembly is very easy to damage when mounting and dismounting tires. Sadly Sears apparently did not take care when mounting your tires, and caused damage. They then denied any responsibility and charged you to replace the valve that they damaged.

    If you do not get a refund, a complaint to the state consumer protection agency or small claims court would be good options.
