Waynes Automotive price gouging poor service ontario, California
now after learning about this i took the car to a mechanic who was on the Mazda dealer approved repair center list, this mechanic, said open the hood ? crank it over ? ok the lower cam belt gear is bad it's common in the year and model, in 5 min's he pulled the bolt and looked at the crank shaft and told me he could not do the repair with out replacing the engine at a cost of 1080.00 installed ? because of Madza's policy on that engine with a scored crank shaft ? i asked what am i to do ? he told me to do it your self ? and explained in 15 min's every detail i need to do and what parts i needed to replace and where to get them ? i asked how much for the estimate to my surprise ? FREE
i went home and ordered the parts on line water pump kit including cam belt, tension roller and gaskets 75.00 on ebay new ? lower cam belt gear 39.00 crank shaft bolt 7.00 wood-ruff key 1.00 ? for a total of 142.00 now i'm in no way considered a mechanic ? i put my daughters bike cycle together for X-mas ? but work on car's is a new experience for me ? but the amateur mechanic i am was able to repair this car in 2 hours with a 64.00 tool kit i bought from home depot ? for a total cost of 206.00
now the story gets even better, i called Wayne's automotive and told them how he had miss diagnosed my engine problem and i was thinking about filling a complaint with the state attorney general about his business practices, in retaliation Wayne's auto called the state of Arizona and said i Tampered with the ignition interlock device, which is a complete lie, and as punishment the state of Arizona extended my interlock commit for six months, now i did not figure this out until to day, but seeking advice from my attorney and chase bank, i was told to return to Wayne's automotive, and simply ask for my money back, so after a heated discussion, Wayne told me that if i pres-sued this matter he was going to call my probation officer and have me arrested for tampering with the interlock !!!
so in a nut shell if you do business with Mr. Wayne remember he is a thief, lire and extortionist and will do what ever it takes to robb you of your hard earned cash. and the biggest thing ? if you piss him off he will call your probation or parole officer to make trouble for you ? i wonder what other business he discusses about his clients, i mean lets say you have a joint in your car ? will he call the FBI and report you ? scary ?
