Honda civic: I took my 2003 Honda with 100,000 miles in to

Customer Question
I took my 2003 Honda...
I took my 2003 Honda with 100,000 miles in to the mechanic to rebuild the engine. Received it back and immediately oil was leaking, hood wouldn't shut due to loose bolts. Alternator belt loose and squeeking. One week later a hose blew right in front of mechanics place. Took it in and he added coolant and put temporary hose. Drove one more week for total of two weeks after rebuild and blew head gasket. Now owner wont do anything unless I sign a paper stating warranty is no longer good since I overheated engine. He has not looked at engine at all. I towed my car home. Can he take back warranty? Isn't he responsible for telling me about a bad hose when putting in rebuilt engine. I paid him 2,800.

Yes, he is responsible for his work (both under the warranty - breach of contract, and for work that is below the standard of care for his profession - negligence).If he fails to repair the engine at his expense, you can sue him for breach of contract and negligence in civil court (find another mechanic who can evaluate the engine and give you an "expert opinion" regarding the cause of the engine failure, as well as the estimated cost of repair to support your case.Prior to filing your civil suit, you can try filing a BBB complaint, the BBB offers no cost dispute resolution for consumers, and is often much faster and less expensive than a civil suit, and if it doesn't work, you can sue afterwards: https://www.bbb.org/consumer-complaints/file-a-complaint/get-started

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.
