Took my car in to this "repair" shop and they told me it would only be $100 to fix a simple electrical problem. After they got ahold of my car they called me and told me it was now going to be $350 and they never even wrote me an estimate! When I told them I wouldn't pay that much for a simple repair they kept my car for 3 weeks and when I finally got it back they had swapped numerous good parts out for broken one's, including the brakes and alternator and they emptied my transmission of all the fluid so that it burned up when I was driving home after finally getting it back - I also found numerous personal items missing from my car such as sunglasses, a hunting knife and fishing equipment. I now have no vehicle at all and have reported them to the California Bureau of Automotive Repair and will be suing them in court as soon as I receive a judgment from the Bureau of Automotive Repair. When I called them to get my money back or atleast get them to fix my car they laughed at me and said "we will see you in court and you won't win." We will see about that .............

If you care about your vehicle and peace of mind, PLEASE AVOID THIS PLACE AT ALL COSTS !

They will steal you blind and laugh in your face afterwards.

I have video evidence of what they did including them admitting that what they did was illegal - if anyone out there knows about this type of situation or has heard of these people doing this to anyone else, I would love to hear from you.
