I wish there was a no star option! Lyft's customer service is without a doubt THE WORST. After spending nearly $200 in rides on one day while on vacation, I woke up the following day to an additional $100 "damage" charge. I inquired about the issue and was told that a driver claimed I ruined one of their weather mats. I claimed that it was untrue and they responded that they protect their drivers and if the driver said it, then it's true. I asked for proof of this damage and they sent me a picture of what appeared to be small area with water, soda or a sticky substance on it. After going back and forth and realizing they didn't give a crap about the customer and what I was saying, I stated that $100 seemed pretty steep for one weather mat. You can buy a pack of 4 new weather mats on amazon for $25!! They claimed they did not care and that they would not remove the charge and my account would be suspended until it was paid. Two days later my card had been charged for $100. I emailed them back and said I did not authorize the charge and they said it's up to them to determine the value of the damage and that amount will not be refunded. I responded that I would be deleting my account and they replied with an automated message saying my case had been closed and they would not look into my claims any further. I promptly deleted my account and will never use Lyft again!! I have never experienced such a careless disregard for customer service. There was no investigation, there was no hearing me out, there was no sympathy or negotiation. Trust me when I say DO NOT USE LYFT. It is not worth it. THEY DO NOT CARE ABOUT THEIR CUSTOMERS. All they care about is making a buck even if means charging a customer who did nothing wrong, has a clean rider record and has always tipped well. SAVE YOURSELF FROM THIS TERRIBLE COMPANY. Download Uber. Take a taxi. Rent a car. Don't let yourself be the next customer they take advantage of.
