The topic of returns reminds me of when I'm asking my kids, "Who knocked over the lamp?" They point to each other and plead their case that the other was to blame. There is truth in each story, but my real concern is that it doesn't happen again.
When it comes to product returns, whether the error stems at the counter or in the bay, returns negatively impact the distribution channel and vehicle repair process, adding time and cost to everyone who handles the parts. I'm sure all parties involved wish they would never happen again.
