I took my car in to get a CV joint. They came and got me after about a half hour or so. They took me to the back and said I needed shocks. I said BS because I bought the parts for shocks and struts and watched my mechanic put them in. He said, "well your mechanic didnt do it right". I said "no, he has been working on cars all his life and he is older". I was so pissed!
He said, "well, you can take your car home but I wouldnt recommend driving it with the shocks loose." said "no S***, now, I have no choice but to get it fixed because this is my only car and I need my car." When I got my car back, the window was down and it was winter. I drove off after paying. I went to roll up my window and it would not roll up. The frame was bent. Now, the window was off alignment but it did roll all the way up.
Now, it would not roll up at all. [continued below]....
..... When I called them, they said they have a sign that they are not liable for what happens to the car when left overnight. I checked the strut and it was turquoise and rusted. I could tell they got it from a junk yard. My part was black and a new part! So, they ripped me off, basically by taking my new part and replacing it with a used part. It looked like they just reinstalled the shock I had. I have no proof of that, but the strut is obvious!!
I called the BBB and filed a complaint, but the store would not cooperate and it was just he said, she said stuff. I filed with the attorney general and I never got contacted or nothing. Honestly, I am poor, and I doubt I will sue. Now it is s****y because I need a new strut and still a CV joint so I am deeper debt. I hope they dont do this bs to someone else. What goes around comes around and they will get theirs! All I wanted them to do was install a new strut and they couldnt do that.
