You know me longer than anyone else, and i pay you upfront, yet you take 3 hours to give me an oil change? Screw that. I do most of my own work whenever i can.

A fine example is i was feeling lazy about putting springs and struts on my trans am, so i took it to a shop i know. I wasnt there to watch them do the first strut, but i was there watching them do the second. The way my setup works is that you are supposed to lineup the strut and the tower mount exactly, then bolt it all together. What the asshole did was bolt it together and then he twisted the strut while it was bolted to the $150 mount. I went nuts and asked him what the hell are you doing, that's rubber, it'll tear. And sure enough, it had a crack in it(mind you the mounts were new). I made him take the other side off and it was cracked too. I called the owner over and he was like thats how they were, since they are the originals. His guy was about to say something when i picked up the worn, yet undamaged originals off the floor and showed him. He had this stupid look on his face. I told him to have new ones delivered and i'd wait for them. And to put the car back together and i want a refund. He said no way at first to the refund, and i told him there was no way that i'd feel safe driving the car after they worked on it and if i got into an accident because of suspension failure, they'd be in a lot of shit. He gave me a refund and told me not to come back. I told him not to worry, me and everyone else i knew wouldnt go back to his shop.
Mad props on having the balls to call them on it and demand your money back! Everytime I demand my money back from a shop it's always this hge argument and I end up walking away with a massive discount, but usually never a full refund...was it a chain or franchise or just some mom and pop shop?

generally annoying or just annoying in this particular thread? I've tried to be nice & helpful...



edit: then I guess you're not the only one. it's the first time I've gotten negrep w/o being rude.

edit 2: I admittedly should have used red text in my initial question to you, and when I say I've tried to be helpful, etc., I mean in general, not this thread in particular.

fine, fine...I can accept that. but when I take 30 min to look up tax forms, then figure out & type up answers to a number of tax questions, why shouldn't I get posrep? I believe one of those was yours, wasn't it?

It's such as shame, because not only are they beginning to charge more for the work, but they are also not doing the work. If they are so damn lazy to do their job correctly they ought to look for another job. It's sickening how many people cut corners and slack off these days, not just in America but in other Countries as well.

Tell them Magnuson-Moss, sadly a lot of consumers probably get bullied into staying with the dealership because they don't know otherwise.
