Corinthian Motors Complaint - Corinthian Motors is deceptive, fraudulent and was dangerously negligent repairing my car.

Review by Stuartny on 2010-01-17
RAMSEY, NEW JERSEY -- I have been going to Corinthian Motors for car repairs for several years. The first incident occurred after they replaced my brake line and failed to tighten the fitting properly. The car leaked brake fluid and lost pressure while I was driving, almost causing me to crash.

Another time, after Corinthian Motors worked on my car, they failed to properly reattach my front wheel causing it to fall off on the highway. My front end crashed into the pavement, ripping apart the front of the car. Luckily no one was killed by their negligence. Such life-threatening mistakes are reprehensible for any repair shop. Corinthian Motors was apologetic for the mistake and assured me they would fix the damage to my car and promised that they would pay for a rental car when I while my car was being fixed for weeks. After months lying to me and Enterprise Rent a Car promising to pay for the rental car and then pretending that they had already done so, owner Joe Frohlich failed to pay and stuck me with a bill for thousands of dollars. Frohlich and Corinthian Motors made dangerously negligent mistakes as mechanics and were intentionally deceptive and fraudulent regarding the problem and carelessness cost me several thousand dollars that they promised to pay for, but never have.

Just Googled this company for the heck of it. I count at least 4 other posts of this story, so if folks don't know about Corinthian, it won't be your fault. Good post, but if a place botched a brake job on my car, that would have been the last chance they got.

The incidents caused by their hack jobs on your car could have cost you your life. Please don't go back! EVER!

that's what i was thinking.
one screw up is all a place gets with me.

one place did a car inspection that passed, and later that day my check engine light came on & the car overheated from an antifreeze issue. got it fixed elsewhere. although i'm not sure if the place that inspected me was at fault, i never went back.

As the 10th Doctor said "No second chances."
