Jim Wooten was hired to work on 2 vehicles owned by my son. One vehicle he had us tow to his house, where he said he would work on it. He failed to provide any written estimates. My son paid him for parts for the first vehicle, and for the one that was towed to his house, he was paid $500 cash for an engine rebuild. During the 4 1/2 months he had the vehicle, he would tell us he was working on it, but he was busy. At one point, he told us the engine had been rebuilt, was running great, but there was a problem with the transmission. This transmission had been rebuilt about 2 years prior. He told us the shop who replaced the tranny had used one that didn't fit, and that the guy had drilled holes in the flex plate. After a while, he stopped answering his phone. Calls were not returned. Then when we would call his son, Zack Wooten, who also works the business, he'd either not answer, not return calls, or if he accidentally answered, he'd simply hang up. We received a notice in late July, 2011, that the vehicle that was supposed to be at his house had been towed, and that it would be auctioned off on August 15, 2011. Both my son and I called, and again, no answer, hung up on, etc. The one call back my son received (they refused to call me) was to inform him that they were going to wait for the auction to "buy it back, cuz it's cheaper". But they didn't receive any notices and had no idea when it would be auctioned off. And, even if they did buy it back at auction, it shouldn't have to have happened, AND we would still be responsible for the balance of the impound fees. When we paid to get the car out of impound, we also had to have a new key made, which required a new ignition switch. The car was full of crap, clothing, papers, ZigZags, beer bottles, trash, etc. There was a beer can in the engine compartment. We had it towed to a reputable shop. They took one look at it and said that they hadn't even opened the engine. All they had done was removed the radiator and left it in the bed of the truck. They took $1,300 from my son, and have done nothing on either car. They were responsible for one, and allowed it to be towed, costing us close to $1,500, not to mention the tickets the car had gotten that were simply tossed into the front of the truck. They lied to us, they knew they weren't working on the car when they told us they were and had. They are guilty of conversion of the car, since they allowed someone else to take it without our consent. They defrauded us out of about $1,300, as well as costing us another $1,500. They also use the name "OC Mobile Mechanic". That is a name that has been used by over 20 years for a reputable mobile mechanic in Orange County. They get people to hire them based on Nick's reputation, then rip them off.

When you gave us "$1300 dollars" for a deposit on $5000.00 dollars worth of repairs we told you we would get started on it and you or your son would have to come up with the rest of the money by the time we finish or if we needed more part money. after a week we called and informed them that we needed more money to keep going on the one car that needed a motor...they simply said we are broke and have no money we said thats ok but we need money soon bec your car is taking up our spot for more money. A MONTH AND A HALF LATER STILL NO MONEY... so they give me 1300 bucks for 5000 dollars in repairs not to include the storage of the car for 2 months while they bitched about there car not being finished...ALL I HAVE TO SAY IS THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOUR CUSTOMER RUNS OUT OF MONEY!!!WE TRIED TO BE THE NICE GUYS AND GIVE THEM SOME TIME AND THEY WANTED US TO FINISH IT ALL THEN PAY US IN PAYMENTS...ONE PROBLEM EVERY TIME I HAVE DONE THIS IN THE PAST THEY VANISH AND SO DOES MY MONEY AND HARD LABOR!!!

I had almost exactly the same thing happen with my RV. These guys are unbelievable!!! Not on ly is there no evidence of any work being done, they trashed it and ABANDONED it alongside the road 30 miles away and it was only by lick did I find it. They used phony addresses on the bogus invoices but I tracked them down to 22605 Via Tercero, Mission Viejo, CA 92691-1839 because they dropped a letter in the RV. All the supposed "favors" they do for you, not returning phone calls and phony work and a lot of damage to the RV, not to mention days and days of me having to search for the RV and then finding it alongside the road, abandoned and open, let alone the stress, these guys must be stopped. I went through a trail of pissed off people that were ripped off by them to track them down and plan to take them to court.
