I wouldn’t pursue a small claims court action unless it was hundreds of dollars. I also wonder which state you would file it in. In my case my residence, dealer and manufacturer are all in different states. I am sure not going to fly to Indiana from Connecticut to attend a hearing there unless it is thousands at stake.
SC court's are very understanding as far as venue. For corporations and LLC's, as long as they do business in your state you can typically file in your county. The 'home' state of the business doesn't matter, they all have a registered agent in every state they do business in (which is typically all of them) that's who you file against and serve papers on.
It's seriously easy. I would give them plenty of time to make you whole, no sense running to court... but keeping notes is a good idea if you think the damages are worth the work.
