My car wouldn't start. Me mechanic changed the flywheel but the problem was not fixed. I took it to the dealership and they had to fix the lock system. My mechanic still wants to charge $550 for changing my flywheel and not fixing my problem, what should I do?

Get documentation from dealership of what your issue was, with all of your documentation take him to small claims court. Oh and fire your mechanic.

Most customers wont take the time to take someone to court. I know your still getting screwd in the end but splitting the bill with them may be the easiest way to get rid of the problem. If they wont do that small claims court is the only other option. After all the time you spend dealing with this you may be losing in the end. I dont think you will be reimburst for your timee off work in small claims court. You might wwant to check into that before proceding.
