I am sorry for the delay but the news is not good.
Generally they are not liable for your travel costs. But if you can show that they have been negligent in the repairs then you can claim the costs that you have incurred because of them.
To do this you need an independent report from another mechanic and to sue them in court.
You have to show that he was lying and misleading you and that he also did not do the job correctly
I hope this makes sense and is of assistance if there is nothing further
