My husband owns a 83 cutlass had his car towed from Baytown to Houston about a godd 40 miles give r take a few . He wanted a motor and transmission rebuilt on it and he had a ton of new parts he bought to put on it. The condition of my husbands car was not perfect, nor was it a lemon the freeze plugs were messed up and some other things but my husband was able to start and drive his car to work. First the owner asked my husband for a $800 deposit I tried to convience my husband to not do this, but what do I know I am only a woman. Long story short He had the car taken in and somehow things did not work out with the motor and as a result my husband asked them to fix certain things on his car such as the freeze plug and carburetor just to get the car to run a little better til he found an engine. My husband and the owner negotiated the price down to only $400 which would let my husband get $400 back. We get to the shop and my husband tells me that it's going to be $475 to get his car out he was charged $800 for the engine take out and take in and he was charged $475 for things such as towing, and unnecessary belts and plus all the new parts my husband bought was not put onto his car. It would have been ok if we could have driven the car home. We didn't even make it off the street my husband started the car all I saw was black smoke and all I heard was sputters, it was something I have never seen nor heard and he has had this car for 3 years. Bottom line when dealing with this store do not be disceived by the " free tow" or cheap prices, a cheap mechanic is not always the best one. I beg any consumer to take one look outside this shop and see the "sitting ducks" of cars he has outside his shop and wonder could these be cars people have left behind because of payment disputes? If you do choose this shop please do not make the mistake my husband made get everything in writing signed by you and the owner and please believe all the reviews you see online about this shop, one or two bad reviews I can understand, but 5 or more you have to believe someone is telling the truth. I am not a liar or deciever I do not steal from others, I am a hard working woman and so is my husband most of my money went into that repair and a dream my poor husband didn't see come true, but I am not that angry
All I can say is that you reap what you sew.
