*REBUTTAL Owner of company: My side of the story
On March 30, I told my car to Tech 100 and got an intake manifold replaced. Two weeks later the engine went. I had my car towed to Tech 100. I did not want to replace the engine if the transmission was bad. He said that the transmission looked good on three occassions. When I got my car back, the transmission was shifting hard. It had never done that before.
I took it back into him and he said there were no error codes and that the transmision was fine. I took it to a Buick Regal dealership and Ammaco transmission/Cottman and they said the transmission was bad and that I needed to spend 1,000.00 to replace it. I asked Ron if he checked the transmission, he said "no." A few days later he changed his story and said that the transmission was in good working conditoin and that he actually checked the transmission.
This was a false statement. He made us fix our engine, knowing that our transmission was bad. He drove our car for 200 miles without authorization and he said that no codes ran. I told him that the codes came up. He said that they do not. When I got the car back, I went back to the Cottman Transmission and they showed me the code.
I would never go to this mechanic. He is dishonest and is awful customer service. He gives your car back to you in a worse shape. I never had a problem with the car until I took it to Ron at Tech 100. He is awful. I spent $3000.00 in the last month. I think he is horrible. Do not go to him, at all. You will regret it.
