Tri Me Auto Repair Complaint - Tri Me Auto Repair – Rip Off, Unauthorized Operation Of Vehicle
HAYWARD, CALIFORNIA -- In May 2006, I went to Tri Me Auto Repair at 22154 Mission Blvd., Hayward, CA to fix the dents and scratches on my car (front & rear left side door, front bumper, hood and left & right bumper corner). I had to leave my car there a couple of days and return back to pick it up. When I picked up my car, the owner agreed that he forgot to fix the scratches on my car’s left bumper corner. The owner wanted me to bring my car back after two weeks. Therefore, I dropped off my car with the owner after two weeks as he had suggested. Before handing my car over to him, the mileage on my car was 22,922. After a week, I was informed that the owner denied the responsibility in fixing the scratches on my car’s left bumper corner. I decided to pick up my car despite the owner’s failure to fulfill his responsibility on fixing the scratches on the left bumper corner. When I picked up my car, I was so shocked to realize the mileage was increased from 22922 to 23788(an increase of 866 miles). I asked the owner (Prinz) the reason for this obnoxious increase in mileage on my car. Without my consent, the owner admitted he took it upon himself to drive my car from Hayward, CA to Los Angeles, CA. I complained and asked him to pay for the cost of 866 miles. Tri Me Auto Repair (the owner, Prinz) refused to make any amends. I am extremely unhappy and hope you all take note of my terrible experience and avoid this repair facility. I will be filing to the Department of Consumer Affairs, Better Business Bureau as well as suing them in “Small Claims” court.
