FEB. 01, 2001 - BOUGHT A 1988 MERCEDES BENZ - 300E FROM GERMAN UNLIMITED IN GARDENA, CAL. PAID CASH FOR $ 6,000.00 AND WAS GIVEN 3 MONTHS WARRANTY ON ENGINE & TRANSMISSION ONLY. ALL INFORMATION REGARDING THIS CAR WERE PROVIDED VERBALLY ON THE DATE I PURCHASED THE CAR. WAS ADVISED THAT EVERY THING IN THAT CAR ARE ARE STILL THE GENUINE PARTS. DURING OUR CONVERSATION AFTER GIVING HIM THE MONEY, THIS GUY HAMID WHO WAS HELPING US SAID THE ENGINE WAS A REBUILT ONE. THA RAISED SUSPICIONS ON MY PART. I DEMANDED THE TO TAKE A LOOK AT THE TITLE JUST TO MAKE SURE IT'S NOT A SALVAGE.I WAS SURPRISED TO SEE THAT THE MILEAGE ON THE AUTOMOBILE WAS SOMETHING LIKE 110,000MILES AND IMMEDIATELY ADDRESSED THE SUBJECT TO HAMID. HIS REPLY " IT'S DMV'S FAULT AS THEY MAKE MISTAKES VERY OFTEN .

FEB. 12TH, ON MY WAY TO WORK, HEARD THIS "TICKING" SOUND COMING FROM THE ENGINE. THE MOMENT I FELT THE ENGINE IS HAVING DIFFICULTY MIVING AND THE SOUND JUST GOT LOUDER, I PULLED OVER TO THE SHOULDER ON THE FREEWAY AND HAD IT TOWED TO THE NEAREST SERVICE STATION. THE MECHANIC REFUSED TO WORK ON THE CAR BECAUSE OF WARRANTY PURPOSES. AGAIN, HAD IT TOWED FROM SEAL BEACH, CA TO GARDENA, CA. THEY DIDN'T WANT TO PAY FOR THE TOWING AND INSTEAD I PAID $77.00. GARY WHO CLAIMS TO RUN THE SHOW AT THEIR FACILITY AFTER HAMID REFUSED TO GIVE ME A WORK ORDER AT FIRST. HE SAID IT,S FREE ANYWAY AND IT'S SOMETHING MINOR...JUST THE LIFTER. IT'S A GOOD THING I INSISTED TO GET ONE.

FEB. 16TH- DATE PROMISED IT WILL BE DONE. CALLED IN THE MORNING & THEY SAY TO CALL BACK IN THE AFTERNOON. CALLED AT 3:00PM AND WAS ADVISED BY REY TO CALL AROUND 5:00PM(PER HAMID). CALLED BACK AT 5:00PM AND REY SAID IT'S READY, BUT THEY HAVE TO CLOSE AND THERE IS NO MECHANIC WHO COULD TEST DRIVE IT. IT'S FUNNY TO FINISH A JOB AND LEAVE WITH OUT DOING THE TEST DRIVE. I DEMANDED TO HAVE IT DONE IN THE MORNING BECAUSE WE NEED TO GO SOME PLACE. TO SHUT ME UP, THEY AGREED.

FEB. 17TH- CALLED IN THE MORNING AND AS EXPECTED, IT WASN'T READY. THEY CLAIMED THAT THEY NEED A PART WHICH IS ON THE WAY. COMES AROUND 3:30 I CALLED BACK AND MR. WONDERFUL-HAMID SAID IT'S READY. AFTER GIVING ME THE KEY, HE MENTIONED THAT THEY EVEN CHANGED THE OIL, WHICH I THINK MUST HAVE BEEN DONE PRIOR. WHEN I FIRST TOOK IT HOME, I PUT 3 QUARTZ OF OIL. I DROVE THE CAR AND MY PLACE IS NOT EVEN A MILE FROM WHERE THEY ARE LOCATED. I HEARD THE TICKING NOISE WAS STILL THERE AND TO MAKE THE SITUATION WORST, THE AIR CONDITIONING WHICH IS ONE OF THE FEATURES I LIKED BEST CONSIDERING IT'S 1988 WAS GONE. DROVE BACK AND ON THE WAY CALLING THEM TO REPORT THE A/C AND THEY WERE CLOSED.

FEB. 19TH - DIDN'T GO TO WORK AND TOOK IT BACK TO THEIR SHOP. FROM THERE ON AND TO THIS TIME, IT'S STILL THERE IN THEIR PLACE.
MR. WONDERFUL HAMID HAS BEEN GIVING ME A LOT OF CRAPS UNTIL MAYBE HE RAN OUT. HE STARTED HIDING AND NOT TAKING MY CALLS WHICH THEY PLAYED IT VERY POORLY. I HAVE TO TAKE A DAY-OFF, PARK WHERE HE WOULDN'T SEE ME COMING JUST TO TALK TO AND CHECK THE STATUS WITH HIM.

STILL, I WAS VERY NICE AND LENIENT WITH THEM, BUT WE ALL HAVE OUR LIMITATIONS. ONE DAY I CHECKED ON THE HISTORY OF THIS VEHICLE AND FOUND OUT THAT THE VIN IS FOR A 260E NOT 300E. I BROUGHT UP THE MATTER TO MR, WONDERFUL AND SAID THEY WERE THE SAME CAR. I'M NOT SURE WHY MERCEDES BENZ WILL MAKE IDENTICAL CARS AND CATEGORIZED THEM DIFFERENTLY. ALSO, FOUND OUT THE MILEAGE OF THE CAR WAS ALREADY 111,000MILES AS OPPOSED TO WHAT IS ON THE ODOMETER OF 85,400MILES WHICH IS ALSO NOT WORKING.

TO AVOID ALL THE AGGRAVATIONS, MY WIFE TOOK OVER AND WAS PROMISED VERBALLY BY MR. WONDERFUL-HAMID THAT IT WILL BE DONE ON THE 26TH OF MARCH. IF NOT, HE WILL REFUND US BACK THE MONEY AND EVEN SAID "YOU GOT MY GENTLEMENS WORD". COMES MARCH 26TH, MR. WONDERFUL/MR. GENTLEMAN OR WHATEVER WAS NOT IN THE SHOP AND THE CAR WASN'T FIX AS EXPECTED.

APRIL 09TH- RECEIVED A LETTER FROM MR. WONDERFUL STATING THAT THE CAR HAS BEEN DONE SINCE THEW APRIL 02ND. NOW, HE'S EVEN THREATENING US THAT HE WILL CHARGE STORAGE IF WE WILL NOT PICK IT UP. THAT ONLY DESCRIBE HOW WONDERFUL AND GENTLEMAN HE IS. I'M NOT SO SURE HOW THEY CONDUCT BUSINESS, WHY THEY DON'T AT LEAST NOTIFY CUSTOMERS WHEN THE JOB IS DONE, INSTEAD THEY SEND YOU A LETTER.

I THINK MR. WONDERFUL/GENTLEMAN HAMID NEEDS A REALITY CHECK. IF YOU'RE PRETENDING YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND OR PLAYING DUMB, ALLOW ME TO SPIT OUT, HOPEFULLY IN YOUR FACE..THIS IS GOOD ENOUGH REASON OF "ODOMETER FRAUD AND TAMPERING". I'M POSITIVE YOU'RE SMART AND SLICK, OTHERWISE YOU WON'T BE ABLE TO GET AWAY ON SELLING PARTS TO A CUSTOMER WITHOUT A RECIEPT/ OR MAKING YOUR BUSINESS CARD AS ONE. OH, WELL! YOU WANNA PLAY MR. TOUGH GUY NOW INSTEAD OF MR. WONDERFUL/GENTLEMAN, SO BE IT AND I'LL PLAY WITH YOU.
