Broken door hinge

(1996 Chevrolet Express 1500)
in Denver, CO on April 20, 2011
wind blew door open and it wouldn't close properly. Macco repaired for $150. Two weeks later door wouldn't lock shut. They want an additional $500 to repair. Said they did the quick fix first and now have to do heavy-duty repairs because car is 20 years old. I think $650 to fix a door hinge seems way too high. Macco is a block away that's why I went there.

All you can do is go to a couple of other body shops to get estimates. Body shops can't give you an estimate until they see the extent of the work needed.

Bring your car by Downing Street Garage and ask for Douglass. This may be an easy fix. Call ahead and ask for Douglass. 303-777-0142
