My 17-year old daughter was in a fender-bender about 3 weeks ago and needed some body work done to her 2008 Nissan Altima. After dropping the car off for her, I told the owner, Kerry Larkin, that my daughter would be picking the car up when it is ready. Three days went by and I heard no word from the shop, so I called. The owner told me that there was "more damage than expected underneath the fender". 3 more days went by and I went in with my daughter to see what was going on. As we entered the shop, the guy behind the counter starts whistling towards my daughter. He had his feet up on the counter and his hands behind his head, leaned back as if he was watching a movie. As we approached his desk, he boldly said "what's up?", like he was annoyed about something. After asking him what was going on with the car, he just sat there and stared at my daughter, looking her up and down, blatantly gawking at her! Now, this is a 50-year old man checking out my 17-year-old daughter! He's fat, bald, and has the worst bad breath I've ever smelled in my life! I again asked him about the car, which led to him leaping out of his chair and walking towards the garage door. "This way," he said, as he directed my daughter to go in first as he held the door open for her.
As my daughter walked in, he stared directly down at her butt, whistling once again inappropriately. I gave him one final warning, face-to-face, to not look at my daughter again. His breath wreaked so bad, it smelled like he ate a fresh pile of dog crap for lunch. He walked us back to her Nissan where I almost had a stroke!... Her bumper looked WORSE than it did when I brought it in! The color wasn't matched at all. It looked like 2 completely different blue paint! Plus the original pain had sparkles in it, this paint looked like something you get from the hardware store and paint your bathroom walls with!!! I was so disgusted. All he could tell me was "that's factory paint, we don't have that." What made me most livid was the price he was asking! $1,179.00! I put it on my credit card, and I let him know how furious I was. He didn't care one bit. When we got home, my daughter came out of the shower and showed me what she found in her back pocket. It was a little slip of paper that read "Kerry cell", followed by his phone number! He slipped his phone number in her back pocket without us knowing! What a pathetic loser this guy is! If you have to get your car fixed, don't go to Ideal Body & Paint Shop. The owner is a loser and a ripoff artist!
