Two years ago is an unreasonable time for the body shop to keep the car. If they have not done any work on it, your son should take the car back immediately. If they have done some work, then your son should pay them for the work done, but he will have to take it to another body shop to get the repairs finished. In any event, the body shop cannot keep the car for that long, and if they won't return it, then you go to the Department of consumer affairs in your state that issues the license to the body shop and file a complaint and they will make the body shop return your son's car now.

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.
