Complaint Review: Daps Stop N Shop
Daps Stop N Shop Star touch inc, aftab punjwani, sean bal Sold me a $8000 Car with Warranty, Engine needed replacement, they refused to take care of repair Arlington, Texas
About 5 days later we pick up the car, Aftab isn't even there to close the deal we deal with the Manager Sean. [continued below]....
We get the shop on Saturday afternoon. My father and brother are with me and while we are waiting we see the mechanic using spray on gasket on the car. After about an hour, we are asked if we can leave the car over the weekend so they can get tot the bottom of the issue. When I go out to get my things from the car. I notice that the mechanic who has my car on teh lift has the car's sideskirts are being pushed up by the supports on the lift. He didn't use the proper spacers when placing the life so the supports were pushing up on the plastic.
Enraged I tell the mechanic my problem and he doesn't speak english, my luck. I am given a loaner car and here is where things start to get crazy. Sean tells me if I get pulled over to tell the police that I am just on a test drive, this boggles my mind but whatever. I really just wanted to get home. The loaner has no gas, and a warning light for the oil comes on on the way to the gas station. After putting gas in the car, I check the oil and find there is NO oil in the vehicle. We hurry up and bring the car back to Daps and I get my Mazda back.
Finally I get on the phone with GWC the warranty company they use and the car is being looked at by City Garage. They recommend a new motor, and the warranty companies adjuster agrees. A $5800 repair. However, because it was clear to the adjuster that the repair was recently attempted and failed, the warranty company denied the claim. Clearly also the crook owner Aftab has said this is the warranties companies fault, and that I have expected to much out of a used car. We are now fronting the bill for the repair and having to sue this crooked dealership. Do not buy from these guys, they will rip you off.
I ended up having to pay a total of $4030 to replace the engine. I made a huge mistake trusting these guys. You think when someone warranties a car, why get it inspected? Even if I don't get my money back, I will take comfort knowing I may have prevented someone from getting into the same trainwreck as I did...
