GBODY PARTS, I WANT A DIVORCE!!!

I'LL KEEP THIS AS SIMPLE AS POSSIBLE.
BUYING PARTS FROM GBODY FOR 4 YEARS NOW
ESTIMATED 5 OR 6K IN BUSINESS IN AROUND A DOZEN OR SO PART ORDERS
A FEW HAVE GONE AWRY, WRONG PART, OR MISCOMMUNICATIONS AND DELIVERY BULLSHIT
NO BIG DEAL, WERE ALL HUMAN, WE ALL MAKE MISTAKES, SHIT GETS FUCKED UP FROM SOME OF THIER SUPPLIERS. ALL GOOD.

THEN THERE IS THE STRAW. YOU KNOW, THE ONE THAT FINALLY AFYTER ALL RESILIENCE IS WASTED AND PATIENCE AND UNDERSTANDING HAVE LEFT THE BUILDING, FINALLY BREAKS YOUR BACK.

I ORDERED GBODY'S ADVERTISED WILDWOOD BRAKE KIT FOR MY GRAND NATIONAL, AT THE START OF MY RESTORATION, ABOUT 3 YEARS AGO. WHEN IT WAS DROP SHIPPED DIRECTLY FROM WILDWOOD, I NOTICED THE BOX STATED THIS FITS CAMARO 78-??? WHATEVER.
CALLED GBODY IMMEDIATELY AFTER RECEIVING THE PART AND WAS ASSURED (AFTER RECITING PART #'S AND SPECS) THAT THIS WAS INDEED THE PART FOR MY GRAND NATIONAL.
FUNNY THING.
I DID NOT TRUST THIS INDIVIDUALS OPINION AND CALLED AGAIN A FEW DAYS LATER AND WAS ASSURED AGAIN BY A SECOND INDIVIDUAL (GBODY PARTS EMPLOYEE, AGAIN) THAT THIS WAS THE RIGHT PART, RIGHT NUMBERS ETC. ETC.

MY FAULT- SHOULD HAVE CALLED WILDWOOD IMMEDIATELY, THEY ACTUALLY KNOW WHAT THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT. THEY ACTUALLY PROVIDE GOOD CUSTOMER SERVICE AS WELL.

MY FAULT- I SHOULD'NT HAVE ORDERED ALL THE PARTS FOR MY COMPLETE CAR RESTORATION (AS IT TAKES YEARS FOR LITTLE OLD ME AND SOME PALS TO FULLY RESTORE AN OLD CAR) EVEN THOUGH YOU NEED THEM EARLY IN THE RESTO FOR MOCK UP (OBVIOUSLY NEVER MOCKED THESE UP, BUT I SHOULDN'T HAVE TOO, NOT BRAKES, NOTHING WAS BEING CHANGED FROM STOCK, AFTER ALL THESE FIT RIGHT?

YES MR. VELEZ, MR GBODY CAN ASSURE YOU THESE ARE THE PROPER BRAKES FOR YOUR CAR.

NOT!

NOT THE RIGHT PART GBODY. ONCE THE FUCK AGAIN!

TAKE A CHILL PILL JAMES, THEY WILL DO THE RIGHT THING AND EXCHANGE THEM, IT WAS THIER FAULT FOR NOT SENDING THE RIGHT PART IN THE FIRST PLACE, AND THEN FOR REASSURING YOU THAT IT WAS THE RIGHT PART , SO THAT THEY SHOULD SIT ON THE SHELF LIKE ALL THE OTHER BRAND NEW PARTS JUST WAITING FOR THIER TURN TO BE PUT ON THE CAR.

NOT!

AS WE ALL KNOW, YOU CANT GET A HUMAN BEING ON THE PHONE ANYMORE AT GBODY BECAUSE THEY REALLY DON'T CARE FOR CUSTOMER SERVICE.

FUCK WHAT YOU HEARD, ITS BECAUSE THEY ARE TIRED OF LISTENING TO PEOPLE COMPLAIN, SO INSTEAD OF FIXING THE REASONS WHY PEOPLE ARE COMPLAINING, LETS JUST GET ONE OF THOSE COMPUTER MESSAGE THINGY'S AND NEVER CLEAR THE VOICEMAILS SO WE DON'T HAVE TO DEAL WITH THAT SHIT.

LETS DO IT VIA E-MAIL, ITS SO MUCH EASIER TO BULLSHIT PEOPLE VIA A FUCKING TEXT THAN IT IS TO CARE ENOUGH ABOUT THEM AND SPEAK WITH THEM LIKE HUMAN BEINGS.

NOT TRUE?

THEN RETURN MY CALLS, I HAVEN'T BEEN MAD OR IRRATE, I THINK IM QUITE CALM CONSIDERING.

NOT TRUE! WE CARE ABOUT OUR CUSTOMERS!

YEAH?

THEN WHY WAS I TOLD IT'S BEEN TOO LONG SINCE THE ORDER AND THERE IS NOTHING WE CAN DO ABOUT IT, VIA EMAIL?

GBODY OR WILDWOOD MESSED UP, NOT ME! I JUST GAVE YOU A SHIT TON OF MY BUSINESS AND TRUSTED THAT YOU WOULD IN TURN PROVIDE ME WHAT I ORDERED.

THAT YOU WOULD PROVIDE GOOD CUSTOMER SERVICE IN THE EVENT OF A PROBLEM.

THAT YOU WOULD GIVE A SHIT.

WHY DID THE EMAIL'S STOP? I'VE BEEN MORE THAN UNDERSTANDING IN TRYING TO WORK OUT A SOLUTION.

I GET THAT ITS BEEN A FEW YEARS, BUT THATS NOT MY FAULT. I CALLED AND SPOKE WITH YOUR REPS (BACK IN THE DAY WHEN YOU ACTUALLY COULD) AND SAID THAT I THOUGHT YOU SENT THE WRONG PART.

YOUR REPS SAID IT WAS RIGHT

SO THERE IT SAT, WAITING FOR ITS TIME TO BE INSTALLED LIKE EVERY OTHER PART.
I SAID, I GET THAT IT CANT BE EXCHANGED TO WILDWOOD, OK, SO CHARGE ME A RESTOCKING FEE OR SOMETHING, DEDUCT WHAT YOU FEEL IS AN ACCEPTABLE LOSS AND GIVE ME A STORE CREDIT.
NOT EVEN ASKING FOR CASH, JEEZ! I STILL NEED SOME THINGS, I REALLY DON'T, BUT I UNDERSTAND IT'S A TUFF SITUATION TO MANAGE.

BUT I TELL YOU WHAT. MYSELF, AS A BUSINESS OWNER, IT IS MORE IMPORTANT TO ME THAT MY CUSTOMERS ARE SATISFIED WITH THE SERVICES I PROVIDE THAN ANY OTHER ASPECT OF THE TRANSACTIONS WE ENTERTAIN.

ESPECIALLY MY REPEAT CUSTOMERS
ESPECIALLY THE THANKS FOR THE THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS WORTH OF BUSINESS OVER THE YEARS CUSTOMERS.
ESPECIALLY THE CUSTOMERS WHO CARE MORE ABOUT THE CUSTOMER SERVICE THAN ANY REASON FOR THE PROBLEM IN THE FIRST PLACE!

MY PARENTS ALWAYS TOLD ME, ITS NOT HOW YOU FALL DOWN, BUT HOW YOU PICK YOURSELF UP. NO?

I DON'T EVEN CARE ABOUT THE BRAKES. I BOUGHT THE RIGHT ONE'S DIRECT FROM WILDWOOD. I'LL FIGURE OUT WHAT TO DO WITH THE FUCKIN CAMARO BRAKES.

ITS WHAT TO DO WITH YOU GBODY THAT REALLY CONCERNS ME.

DO I SAY FUCK IT, LET EM BE UNREASONABLE AND I'M JUST NOT PATRONIZING YOUR STORE ANYMORE?
LET ME JUST TAKE THIS DICK OUT OF MY ASS AND JUST GET OVER IT?

OR DO I SAY SOMETHING ABOUT IT TO THE PEOPLE WHO PUT FOOD ON YOUR TABLE?

YEAH THERE WILL BE SOME WHO HAVE SOMETHING CUTE TO SAY TO ME OR COME UP WITH SOME REASON OF HOW I'M WRONG, AND I MUST BE CRAZY AND THEY DON'T DO THAT WITH ME BLAH, BLAH, BLAH, BLEH BLA BLA BLEH BLAH BLAH! I LOVE GBODY WAAAAAAAAHHHHHH WHY DON'T YOU GO CRY ABOUT IT!

AND YEAH THERE, UNFORTUNATELY ARE SOME WHO KNOW EXACTLY WHAT I'M SAYING AND MORE IMPORTANTLY FEELING.

PROVE ME WRONG GBODY.

CALL ME, YOU HAVE MY NUMBER. IF NOT, CHECK YOUR VOICEMAILS, ITS ON SEVERAL OF THEM.

YOU HAVE MY EMAIL ADDRESS. IF NOT, CHECK YOUR INBOX, I SENT 3 OR 4 MESSAGES THAT YOU NEVER REPLIED TO.

PROVE ME WRONG GBODY, HASH THIS OUT AND SHOW ME YOUR WORTH GIVING MY HARD EARNED MONEY TO. SHOW ME YOU ACTUALLY DO CARE ABOUT CUSTOMER SERVICE. THIS ISN'T THE FIRST MISTAKE YOU'VE MADE, WE'VE FIXED A FEW IN THE LAST FEW YEARS. WHY NOT NOW?
PROVE ME WRONG AND SHOW ME THAT NOTHING HAS CHANGED, THAT YOU GUYS ARE ALRIGHT LIKE I ALWAYS THOUGHT AND THAT YOU CARE ABOUT THE SUCCESS OF GBODY'S FUTURE AND MY MONEY AND MY LOYALTY.

SORRY THIS WAS'NT SO SIMPLE.

SORRY IF YOU LOVE GBODY AND FEEL SLIGHTED, TO YOU I SAY, BUYER BEWARE!

SORRY I PUKED THIS ON TURBO BUICK, BUT I SHARE THE SAME LOVE AS YOU ALL, THESE CARS, AND THESE ARE THE PEOPLE WE ARE GIVING OUR HARD EARNED CASH TO TIME AND AGAIN, ALL I WANT IS GOOD SERVICE, I'LL EVEN SETTLE FOR DECENT.

SORRY IF THIS HAS BEEN YOUR EXPERIENCE AS WELL, I FEEL YOUR PAIN. GBODY USED TO BE THE SHIT!

NOW ITS JUST, SHIT.

JAMES VELEZ, NYC FIREFIGHTER AND GBODY (THE ACTUAL CARS) FANATIC

Oddly enough, I heard the yelling in my head as I read this. I have seen this guy in public at the Nats for years. I could not imagine having this kind of negativity surrounding my company.

One of many....This happens, when one deals w/ the LCD.
Due to the time lapse, I'd put the Camaro parts on Ebay, take some Zoloft,:D and chalk it up to the past. Won't "break" even, but not a total loss.

Sell the parts and move on. You don't need this kind of negativity in your life. And as I travel every week between NJ and NYC, I need you focused on your job. Lol. Seriously, it's fine you vented. Move on. Work with better people in your life.
 
Love the reply's gents, thank you sincerely for the advice and positive outlook. its where I am pretty much headed, just really disappointed in GBody. The owners are really great people just like you and I and unfortunately, just like you and I, we are sometimes going through shit in life that can have the ability to knock us off our A game. Its obvious that this company is going through some changes. Just sad to see it happening and to be a part of it on the receiving end, ya know. No sweat on the part, its only money, and I am learning not to get worked up behind other peoples shit. Its all good. Thanks again all!

LoL Chuck! I'snt Zantac like an allergy medication? Thank you for the words of wisdom bud.
 
I think he meant Zanax, for your anxiety. Zantac is for heartburn, which you may also be experiencing? Take 2 of each and tell us how you feel in the morning. Just don't drink, drive, or operate heavy machinery.

Zoloft is for allergies.
Actually, it's an antidepressant w/ side effects!!:smuggrin:
The most commonly observed adverse reactions in patients treated with ZOLOFT (seen in 5% or more of patients and at least twice as high as the control group) were nausea (25%), delayed ejaculation (14%), shakiness (8%), increased sweating (7%), lack of appetite (6%), and reduced sexual desire (6%).
Damn! That shit is deadly!!:jawdrop::D

No need to encourage him to be suicidal. Lol.

I have had good experiences . . . But loosing faith based on my last transaction.
 
It is amazing to me that (1) Gilbert -Gbodyparts- Weaver still continues to screw over his customers AND (2) people still give him the chance to screw them. I was very vocal with my experience with that snake and posted pictures of the carnage. I've left links in my sig to the thread. I don't understand how folks continue to put themselves at risk. People you have other options, wise up and exercise those other options. I do not and will not even consider buying from Gilbert anymore. James Velaz, read my thread and you'll see it can actually get worse.
 
I agree, after years of good transactions the last couple have been bad experiences..
Consider this like the idiot currently in office. He doesn't pay any attention to what's really going on, can't figure out how to do things right, doesn't want to admit that he's clueless, And will shortly be gone because someone has taken over.:ROFLMAO:
 
I think most of us have had to deal with them at some point, for better or worse. Back in 2012 when I first got my car I spend thousands with them in restoration parts and upgrades. Only had one issue with one of my orders that parts were backordered. Shortly after I called asking if they had a fixed antenna they could pull from a parts car and was told they would call me back. Kept getting the run around every time I called so I stopped trying. About 6 months ago I bought a set of clear bumper lights from them on ebay and was surprised when they showed up 3 days later. Then a week later, I received another set that I was never charged for :rolleyes:, win win for me ;). So maybe ebay is the better way to go to deal with them since ebay and paypal hold them accountable for screw ups (y).

Do you wanna sell the extra lights? :D

I know that I would get them quicker and they would be the right part for my car.:ROFLMAO:
 
Was sold aftermarket reproduction Cutlass tail light emblems as NOS GM parts.
He changed the description after he was ousted for fraudulently passing off aftermarket as NOS.
Even admits to me in email that they were NOS but later confirmed by Goodmark as aftermarkets...
Lost $117 on that deal

Good read to see how honest this guy really is:

Oh and by the way, I've caught Brian using fake Facebook aliases just to TROLL me in my for sale threads on several Oldsmobile and G-body groups.
The guy is a real class act!
