When they did the first round of work, they were dealing with an overheating issue. They replaced the radiator and it didn't fix the problem. It was still overheating and I had to take it back to get the thermostat replaced. They charged me full price for having the thermostat replaced.

I took my daughter's car in to get it fixed and the receptionist gave me a quote that included tax and everything, when I came to get the car after it was done the owner gave me an entirely different quote. When I approached him about it he started to get angry and raise his voice at me in front of customers, so I turned around and walked out of his shop.

by - Verified Customer September 20, 2014
