Sunoco Gas Station - Ripoff/ Bad Businessman
Serviced Never Rendered but Had to Pay. - Complaint
POUGHKEEPSIE, NEW YORK -- I Brought my car in for repairs, small oil leak. Having little money and an infant, I put my trust into this business owner. I received the call that my car needed multiple repairs, with an infant and not wanting to put my child in danger, I told him to do the repairs. I used my remaining student loan money to fix the car(which Larry the owner was aware of) when I arrived to pick up the car, the car wouldn’t start and when the owner finally had gotten the car to start, blue smoke came out of the engine/this never happened before, he said it was normal after what the shop had done. The next two weeks the car fell apart, leaving me with a massive oil leak. I had to borrow a family members car to go places with my infant. When I notified the owner, he told me to bring the car down to take a look, so I did, and of course... more problems. I have no money or saving left so I told him that I would just pick the car up, he then told me that I owe money for a half hour service($41 dollars plus tax). I refused to pay the fee and he refused to give me my keys. If I had knew he would charge for taking a look at my car I would have never brought the car to him. bad businessman!
