This has been a terrible experience, I will not recommend this place to anyone.... beware... this is my unfortunate experience after driving into the area with my family on vacation then having issues with my transmission slipping , I was told about Marlon and his shop as a potential place for repair....when my Cadillac Escalade was dropped off by tow truck moments later I over heard the owner Marlon speaking to one of his workers even on phone with his brother in back office about what they can make off this job. Then moments later I was told I needed a new transmission the one I had in my "new” truck was no good at all. Me Having limited knowledge of transmissions and being with my family of 6 & just tired from travel. I agreed to allow his shop to fix my truck especially when he told me he was a Christian. Then moments later I was told it couldn’t be re built. then the owner quoted a price of over $3,000 for a rebuilt transmission off someone else truck he had in the back or $5,000 for a new transmission, I agreed to a rebuilt transmission of $3,600 since I was on vacation and that is a good amount our money to spend for a last minute issue. [continued below]....


Then upon my arrival to retrieve my truck I was told they went ahead and put a new transmission in instead and the cost would be now be $5,000 but they will hold the tax and total would only be $4,600... it was like a bait and switch!!! and on top of that still seem to be have issues with transmission in gears 2&3 slipping occasionally. I willingly paid the owner Marlon $3,210 cash in hand when other payment options didn’t work out. The owner agreed to work with me on remainder amount how ever when he looked me up and seen my financial position the owner Marlon and others on his staff or family (I’m not sure) started sending harassing calls calling me out of my name especially when he found out I was a Christian pastor, posting very egregious things and texting me throughout the night and day for multiple days on end from 3 different phone numbers threatening me if I didn’t give more money he would take further actions only to have him continue to stalk me, and post negative things online about me and the remaining balance on my social media ... all because I found out what he did with the bait and switch .

It’s been one big headache and I’m still stuck with a overpaid transmission I’ve paid $4,600 for. So if you have the time and like the drama and want to over pay come here. If not beware..... we are currently pursuing legal action on top of paying him the balance to make all this stop.......Wow and to think I paid this guy $3,210 in cash in good character immediately just to do what is right .... I wonder what would have happened if I didn’t pay him all.... he and others still call my phone almost daily even after I’ve been paying him the remaining balance, and even threatened to put something disparaging In my city newspaper to excoriate my character even further...wow what business man does that ... deal with him at your on risk....scary!!! We are praying for him and his family in-spite of all this, I think he really needs it. Just beware! And be careful.
