One Stop Auto and Diesel Complaint - Misrepresentation - Automotive Repair

Review by 68camaro on 2010-03-01
GLENDALE, ARIZONA -- I purchased a vehicle from one of the owners of One Stop Auto and Diesel, during the inital conversation on this transaction, I was assured that even though the odometer had high mileage, the mechanic/owner had recently performed an overhaul on the motor so it was good, after the inital converstations the mechanic/owner signed a written agreement that he would be financially and mechanically responsible for the vehicle as long as I owned it. As the motor has now went bad and this issue was addressed his comment was he was going to fix it, in giving him the benefit of the doubt this has went on for almost two months, the last conversation on this matter was that according to him he was not going to fix it, I could take him to court and he would claim that he did not have any money to pay for it and his partners would come up with evidence to support this, and I was pretty much out of luck.
I am sure that not all mechanics/shop owners would make this kind of agreement however business is business and when you sign an agreement and make verbal agreements you should keep your word and not have it drag out this long.

Take him to court. Who cares what his partners say. If the judge rules in your favor, then you can have his wages garnished.

Wait a minute...what person is going to agree to be financially responsible for a vehicle they are selling for the life of the sale? Something doesn't sound right there. You didn't have your own mechanic check it out first?

That sounded a little far fetched to me too, Lady. I could see maybe a few thousand miles, or a year in time, but for the life of the car while this person owns it? I have my doubts.

This is in Wally and L'yaya's back yard, maybe they know something about the business? Reputation in the area etc...

seems far fetched that anyone selling a car would calim they would be finacially and mechanically responsable for this vehicle for your life.

That sounds like quite a warranty.

Of course, we don't know how long the OP has owned the vehicle. 6 months? A year? 15 years?

If, in fact, the OP has a signed agreement from the seller stating what the OP says, it would be interesting to see how it played out in court.
