Sun Devil Auto Complaint - Beware SUN DEVIL AUTO will rip you off!

Review by Banner Victim on 2010-05-13
SUN CITY WEST, ARIZONA -- 1.)My father took his vehicle to Sun Devil Auto, on Camino Del Sol in Surprise, AZ, and wanted his A/C recharged. They told him they had to replace the entire system and charged him over $2,000. Less than 6 months later the system didn't work. He brought it back and they said "It must have a leak". They charged him again for the service. Less than three months later, the system no longer works at all.

2.)I brought my care to them, to fix a small radiator leak. When I got it back seven days later, I now had an oil leak. I immediately took it back. They told me I needed to replace the rear main seal, and that it would cost $1,400. After I got it back several days later my transmission made a horrible grinding noise. They told me it was "a rock in the heat shield", and that they had removed it. Less than two days later, the noise was back. I returned and told them I wanted whatever they did to be fixed. They got nasty, defensive and insisted there was nothing wrong.

I took my car to another shop, where they discovered that the transmission had been mishandled by Sun Devil Auto's mechanics and they had screwed up my transmission. It cost me another $2200 to replace it.

These guys are taking advantage of people. AVOID THEM AT ALL COSTS!

What is the timetable here? Did you take your car there before or after the issues with your father?
