That is some great customer service for sure.
Also I'm glad to see your blog getting that kind of traffic.
Your cooks are always great and are inspiring.

Good to hear. I have not had a reason to contact them since I bought mine 2 years ago.

That's crazy.

I assume they were free? Otherwise that is effective marketing.

That really is great customer service. Talk about proactive!

And I have a Vision Classic, so doubly nice to hear!

a free set of gaskets is nothing compared to how you just increased their credibility and possible sales. Why don't more companies think and act this way.

Exactly what I was thinking...

Right after I called them stalkers...

That is truly exceptional customer service! Wish the manufacturers I've dealt with were 2% as good.

By the way, can you give me their email address? I'm going to send them a picture of my car and see what happens.

That is great! Sounds like Vision is an outstanding company with a "Vision" for success. Glad to hear they take such good care of customers.
