Randy Meadows Automotive of Jacksonville Illinois cheats local family by charging outrageous fictitious fees. Imagine being charged hundreds of dollars for a few repairs that should only take 30 to 45 minutes, at the most. Well that's what Meadows Automotive did the day we bought in our vehicle for a few fast small repairs. Randy the owner and the mechanic intentionally kept wasting time so they could charge more money.
With a shop rate of $70 per hour you would think that they could make their money honestly, but instead they choose to prey on honest, hardworking folks. They tried to create additional work by informing me of other things that supposedly needed fixing, which makes you wonder..."How can they justify charging you labor fees for the additional time they took trying to create extra work to do?"
The owner was very unaccomodating and would not answer basic questions and charged over 50% more that there estimated charges. By the way the estimated charges were supposed to be a maximum fee for the labor and materials. On top of that they didn't even complete there repairs, and they advertise that your satisfaction is guaranteed.
Evidently it's their satisfaction that is guaranteed because when I told them that I was not satisfied with the repairs and the owner, Randy Meadows, said you can fix it yourself, and also said he could've charged me a lot more money if he chose to do so.
It appears that the owner is under the false impression that he can print money on demand by preying on innocent customers that don't have automotive repair knowledge, but I'm on a crusade to make sure that maggots are publicly exposed for what they are. You shall know them by their fruits!
Meadows Automotive has negative reviews because they're dishonest, unprofessional, lazy, trifling thieves!
My advice is, "DO NOT USE RANDY MEADOWS AUTOMOTIVE!"
To the Meadows Automotive Workers I say:
1. The way of the Wicked will be turned upside down!
2. You will perish with your evil deeds.
3. You do the works of your father, SATAN!!!
Another thing that thoroughly perturbed me is the fact that my little girl, young women, and ladies have to see grown men with their "REAR ENDS" EXPOSED. This is disturbing and disgusting...and it reflects their service, morals and lack of professionalism. And for goodness sake, I hope someone teaches them to use soap and water to rid themselves of the outhouse like odor emitted from their bodies. The owner has to be about 60 and should hire help that knows what good personal hygiene is...Oh I forgot, FIRST he should lead by example...and keep his own pants up...and keep up his personal hygiene, then he can ask his help to do the same without being a hypocrite.
