I drove my car 1600 miles all was fine when i got home, I replaced the tires, and got it aligned. I watched as the mechanics used a hammer and hit the underneath of my car repeatedly. Atho shocked I drove away afterwards. The problems then started, while driving it felt as though the car was slipping, like when hitting a patch of ice. I returned the car and was told I needed two new struts on the front of the car and the clutch needed replaced. It also looked as though I had too much oil in the engine, which, I had also had the oil changed by a different oil change outfit. When I questioned them about it, he went below the car, came back up and check the oil.(this all just seems too much to believe) I feel as though these mechanics damaged my car. Does anyone know who I should report this to? I am so afraid to trust mechanic, I don't know who I will have do my auto repairs.

Here is a consumer rights guide from your state: http://www.legislature.mi.gov/documents/publications/Cons...
Performing an alignment could require using a hammer, especially in an area where there's snow. I suggest having another shop inspect your vehicle for a second opinion on if the repairs are needed and if the other shop may have damaged your car.

There are a lot of good, honest mechanics out there, I hope you find one soon.
