Stefan International Car Service4216 Buford Highway Duluth, Georgia United States of America
The owner of this business Stefan is a CON ARTIST. He tried to charge me more than $1900 to accomplish work that should have only cost less than $900.00.
The arrangment was that he would give me an estimate and I would decide if I wanted the car fixed or not. WHen I got the estimate I told him I would call back in a few minutes and decide if he would repair the car or not. I call him in about 7 mins and told him I did not want the car repaired because it cost too much and I could not afford $1900 right now.
He told me he would allow me to pay half now and the rest later. He was very persistant. So I decided to let him go ahead because there was no way he would get off the phone without repairing the car. very persistant.
Once I hung up and thought about the situation. I callled him back and he did not answer the phone. He finally answered like 20 mins later and claimed he was at lunch. He finally called me back at almost 2 hours later and began to insult me on the phone.
He claimed that he had already ordered the parts and that the car was already on the rack and the guy had started working on it. He claimed that it would cost me $365.00 for the repairs that were accomplished. He claimed they had serviced the radiator and topped of the power steering fluid. He also claimed he had turned for the check engine light.
I told Stefan the arrangement was that he would not order any parts until I decided to repair the car at his location. He was so set at ripping me off that he claimed he had already begun the repairs when he called me the first time.
STEFAN IS NOT AN AUTO MECHANIC SHOP - THEY ARE A SCAM ARTIST. I was smart enough to pick my car up before he charged me anymore. I lost $270 however I am sure others have not been as lucky as I was and they lost way more than that. BEWARE AND DONT TAKE YOUR VEHICLE TO THIS FELLOW.
