*Consumer Comment: facts
*Consumer Comment: Just walked into an auto parts store?
*Consumer Comment: Typical response
*General Comment: WOW thats so cool!
I surrendered the key after telling him, "It blows cool - but not cold. I think it may only need to be charged with freon. Two hours later, he called me to tell me the system has major leaks, a crack in the condensor, the condensor fan doesn't work, etc. etc. He was going to have to have to order parts, etc. It was a pack of lies. The price for this FREE evaluation? $1,400. Also, he had evacuated all the freon from my system, so I would need to leave it to have the work done or drive a car whose A/C system now only blows HOT.
I walked back to the shop and asked for the Manager, Victor Sanchez as I felt he would like to know I was dissatisfied with this and wanted the car's A/C at least working the way it was when I dropped it off 2 hours earlier.
His response was basically, "Too bad. Goodbye and don't come back". I stopped at an auto parts store, bought some cans of freon, installed them and the system is running better than ever. Total expense? About $60. These guys are the reason our State regulates mechanics and makes them provide written estimates on all work. In my case, he disposed of all the paperwork as we were talking, basically trying to make it look as if I'd never been there. He is a very dishonest guy and I am cutting up my Pep Boys Card. I will never do business with them again.
