Customer service is important and beneficial because it demonstrates the good attributes of the company, encourages the customer to return to the store, and allows other customers to want to purchase a product at that store. 
One important feature of customer service is that it needs to be easily accessible. 
This benefits the organization by making the customer feel that he is important, which can a long way toward being able to retain his business.

I cannot understand why my 4-year old British registered Ford Fiesta with less than 8000 miles on the clock is still languishing in a Ford Lyons dealership in Nenagh, County Tipperary, Ireland for almost 3 weeks and they still have not located the malfunction. Neither have they made any effort to contact me with news of progress (or lack of) on their diagnostics to date. Can anyone in Ford Europe help me - please?

Don’t call the number 08458411111 as it cost me just under£10 on three occasions.
They still never sorted my problem with my less than 1 year old vehicle.
All they seem to do is fob you off and pass the book. The CRC is not fit for purpose neither is my ford.
