Ultimate Automotive Repair Complaint - Ultimate Shyster!

Review by Traci229 on 2010-05-27
PRESCOTT VALLEY, ARIZONA -- The owner of this place sold my mother a car and said "the car ran great!"
One week later, after driving it twice, the head gaskets were blown. She
took it to her mechanic who said it was blown a long time ago because there was anti-freeze debris build up under the car that was a lot older than just a week. Even though Mr. Shyster did make sure to steam clean it before selling it, he missed some of the evidence. When my mother confronted him he denied anything was wrong with the car. He does have the as-is law backing him, since he was sinister enough to have her sign one, but I'm banking on karma catching up with him. Obviously he has VERY LOW morals and wouldn't think twice to rip you off too. IF you’re STILL thinking of doing business with Mr. Shyster you
may want to check the BBB first…A Big Fat “F” Rating!

Why didn't you have your mechanic check the car before buying?

Come on, steve, if they did that then we wouldn't have these complaints to read about! It's always easier to blame someone rather than accept responsibility for one's actions, or inactions.

Why did you not check the BBB rating before having your mother buy a used car. When we were looking for a used car before we even went to the place we checked the BBB and were amazed how many of the used car dealers that were in the Auto magazine had F ratings.

steve101, - She bought it from a mechanic who owns a business and who said the car ran fine. She figured he wasn't lying about the condition being a business owner. (hindsight is 20 20)
saj80 - yep, I told my mother to go out and get ripped off somehow so I could post this complaint for you to read...(jeeez) - Also, committing fraud is an action......
yoke, I didn't know she bought it until afterwards. She didn't buy it from a dealer. He is a mechanic and business owner of a repair shop in a smaller town (you'd think he'd be a little more careful who he swindles)......like I told steve101 - (hindsight is 20 20)-
