Repair/service: Engine rebuild
Total cost 3200.00
Ive read 3 reviews for Automotive Engine Rebuilders in Pomona and theyre stories re similar to mine. The people working for this so called establishment cant even speak English and they are nothing but a bunch of liars and thieves and its true from one of the other reviews that they are doing fraudulent business and they are running a big scam. The owner Victor had his nephew tell me how my van was going to be like new once they do a engine rebuilt and they will give me a 6 year warranty.
First I was given an estimate of 1400.00 with a 6 year warranty then a few days later they called me to tell me they took my whole motor apart and is was going to cost 700.00 more and it would be ready in 2 weeks. I told him this is my
working van and I need it ASAP but they kekpt it sometimes for months causing me to lose business.
My van went back in fourth to AER within 17 months after breaking down on the freeways and getting stuck here and there for the same complaint, (noise in the motor, no power and the engine light still on) but they would say it wasnt the motor.
They had me go buy a camshaft, I told them I had the camshaft previously repaired by another auto repair shop but they insisted the part was no good and I need to take it back so I did. I came back and gave the mechanic the camshaft to
Several weeks later I came to pick up my van and Victor charged me additional 900.00 to rebuild the camshaft which I never authorized. I told him why is he charging for the camshaft and he said, he doesnt warranty parts that the customer brings and he also said the other camshaft I brought back was also no good so they had to rebuild it. I asked Victor why didnt he tell me this before I went to get the part exchanged? (this is one of the scams he uses to get additional money from the customer). He said I should have known that.
I was charged for other parts that my van didnt need. I kept complaining that the van still had the same problem. They took out the Freon from my air conditioner and they said, they couldnt put it back so now as of this date I have no air conditioning, my van still has the check engine light, has no power and noise in the engine and Its parked in front of my house I cant use it for jobs.
Victor and his illegal workers are a bunch of crooks and rip off artist they have gotten away with this too long they need to be shut down and taken out of business this is not how we should conduct business in the United States of America.
