Approx. two years ago I took my '01 Ford Winstar to ProCat for a trans fluid change and oil change... when I got the car back in my driveway there was trans fluid spilling all over the ground had a tow truck bring it back to Procat and they said there was a rod sticking through the side of my trans? They don't know what it was or where it came from (came from inside the trans) Then they said they couldn't do anything about it. Thank you Steve and Sunni for basically ruining the last two years for me and my family, We had to hurry and find another car so we could resume working ($5000 for a used car plus Procat made me pay for the shotty repair another $900.00) My wife didn't want me to file a lawsuit and I didn't nor did I summit a complaint to the BBB (they're useless) The only recourse I had was to suck it up. NEVER AGAIN PROCAT p.s. they use to be a friend of our family

I brought in my vehicle 3 months ago for an oil change and wheel alignment. From the moment I got into my car after repair, I noticed the alignment was still off. The oil change I requested was 4 quarts of Synthetic oil. However as the weeks went by, I started to wonder if they had really used synthetic. I decided to do my own oil change today, and only TWO QUARTS OF OIL CAME OUT! I don't know if they used synthetic or not, BUT THEY ONLY USED TWO QUARTS OF OIL WHEN MY CAR CALLED FOR FOUR. Steve Westhuoff is a smooth talking scam artist, that will say anything to divert your attention away from any complaints you may have. DO NOT TRUST THIS PLACE. I urge anyone who gets an oil change here, to check the level of your oil after letting the car sit. Also, the oil filter used was Proline. Google it, and you will see how horrible a filter it is.
