Automotive Service Works Matthew Lugo MOST DISHONEST EVER! Winter Park, Florida
7th of Jul, 2011 by User643869
I contracted with this company on 6/2/2011 for engine replacement and paid $1300 for a used engine with 26K miles, carfax verified, 180 day warranty. We agreed on $500 labor, paying 1/2 up front. On 6/16, I finally got my truck to his shop (we waited for the engine to come in). After many emails later, I JUST got my truck back on 7/5....33 days after contract, not in good running order, etc. This guy claims a clutch cylinder went out due to excessive wear (so I had to cover the cost), then another part broke, then he needed more time, and the list goes on. Over 10 times I was promised my truck would be done "tomorrow"...tomorrow ended up being 33 days! Once I finally made him stick with a date, he tells me I didnt alot him enough time to fix my truck and any other mechanic would tell me to f off! So I pay him what I owe him....big mistake! Truck isnt in good working order and he then tells me he put old spark plugs in it and i needed to go have all of this other stuff done to get it right...but his job was done. Really? He would not provide warranty information, carfax report, nothing regarding the engine! I placed a stop payment on his final payment. He finally gives me at least a number for the place with the engine and low and behold....I find out he paid $995 (not the $1300 he said I was paying cost for) and the engine has 37K miles (not the 26K I was sold) and because he didnt follow the recommendations, I have NO warranty! When asking the mechanic why he would commit fraud regarding the engine, he says it isnt fraud. He offered a refund of the difference in engine cost but refused to warranty the engine (even though his lack of mechanics is what voids the warranty anyhow), then he puts stop payment on his check to me. lol...long story short....totally a fraudulent place, offered to pay him less the other mechanics fees and with a reimbursement of the engine, but he says to see him in court....I think that I will.
