Dons Automotive Complaint - Bad workmanship - automotive repair

Review by homegirl on 2007-01-17
LANCASTER, CALIFORNIA -- I took my auto to this repair shop for a rebuilt motor. He stated it will be ready in one week. He had it for three weeks. We picked it up and paid him 1,800 dollars for the work. The very same day we got three blocks away and it broke down. We had to get a rental for the 3 weeks. We had the car two weeks and it started over heating. We took it back and he said he fixed it. 2 days later it leaked alot of oil and again we took it back he said give me 700.00 and that it was our trany. We took it to our old repair man he said that alot of hoses were too small and alot were missing. The first repair man did the same thing to our old truck. We want 80% of all our funds. He says we hear too many noises and complain too much. My spouse works 380 miles from home and we need it working right.

Isn't the problem with getting a rebuilt motor versus a new one is the reliability factor? I have been in the same situation before and luckily the rebuilt motor treated me fine.

Report the repair shop to the better business bureau!

Good luck!

I agree file a complaint with the Better Business Bureau and they will help you. I've used them a few times and they seem to get the message across for you.
