I took my Integra to RDP Motorsport for a tune, paid $600.00 for the tuning kit (found out actual price was $400.00 from owner Dave Blundell). Car was there 3 1/2 months and every time we called for information, they told us to stop calling and they were busy! I was told the car needed repairs before performing the tune. Paid another $1,200.00. (should have got car out of there, but they already had our money)
Car did not run after that! My car ran when I brought it to RDP, just needed a tune/timed. Got a call many weeks later to pick up car. When I arrived RDP they had it on a test run. The car stalled, they brought it back by pulling it with a rope by a truck. Mechanic didn't torque wheel & caused the wheel to fall off then later blamed it on the tool! The car was dragged causing damage. The owner told me everything would be taken care of and I owed him nothing for recent added repairs. After waiting 4 weeks, all they did was replace fender (was told was all it needed).
My car still did not run, Owner informed me car needed injectors if I wanted to get it running and would cost $100.00 for each injector or get car towed away and I would get a $1,200.00 refund, when I asked about my $600.00 he said, "I don't care". I got my car out of there!! Towed car to mechanic who found the problem within hours.
The car was towed back with a new bowling ball sized dent on the bumper & the ECU not installed properly! RDP put my distributor piece on backwards causing it to break and created damage to many expensive parts which is why the car never ran (did not need injectors). My insurance co estimated $2,000 damage minus fender due to repairs from wheel falling off.
I never got my $600.00 back & now have a huge repair bill they created. I was told the lifters were replaced which is never performed on an Acura Integra. Never got an invoice or old parts. Owner never answered my calls or returned them, When the wheel fell off, I asked for a refund on previous work, I was told that it was very "rude"! My mechanic can prove the engine damage they created while it was there all summer!! My car was treated very poorly and was their last priority.
Owner Steve Leerentveld is a very rude, unprofessional individual who charges an arm and a leg for unnecessary labor and unneeded & repeated parts. The staff is very young and inexperienced, don't let the look of the place fool you!!
My insurance company is still waiting for payment due to the damage caused from the tire falling off. Steve refuses to pay the collection agencies.
