Customer Question
I have a issue with...
I have a issue with a repair shop, they were suppossed to be fixing my truck, after almost $2,000 it's no longer running. Every since the first day I was calling them about the problem now my truck is no longer working, you can't turn it on or anything. When I had it towed back to there shop, they told me I blew my head gaskets now, an they don't do that work " were done " is what the mechanic said. Help me solve this problem, we can't keep letting these people get away with this, and it's a common practice in some areas. Thank you for your time, hope to here from you soon.

hi

 

well, it is a matter that would need to be handled in FLA small claims court and you can file that yourself.

 

here is the information on the small claims process

 

you also can contact the FLA Attorney General to investigate for fraud and/or deception if you feel that is what is going on.

 

here is the AG's contact information.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

I have a question about an auto repair shop. Colorado, 2010
My 2010 Buick Enclave out of nowhere would not start one morning so I had it towed to a repair shop. They got it running after hooking it up to a booster pack. They then talked me into $978 worth of spark plugs, ignition coils, intake gasket, valve cover gasket, valve cover seals and a fuel injection cleaning. My wife noticed the engine sounded wrong as soon as she picked up the car, but I told her with the injection system being freshly cleaned it might need time to adjust. After almost 2 weeks of the engine sound getting worse we returned the car to the shop. They had us pick it up the next day and the sound we still there. The very next morning the engine completely locked up and they are now asking for $6588 to replace the motor.… read more
