HIS mechanic came up with nothing, and I paid for all as he started making excuses, and split.
I guess I'm too trusting, and figure someone's "word" still means something. The lack of integrity among us is disappointing.
Enjoy the great weather.
I would have taken my car and told the mechanic to contact "his" customer for payment, no way in hell I would have paid.
I do not take cars to mechanics/for inspections/cert+etest without deposit.
Sometimes it scares people away, other times they are reasonable and understand that a deal is a two way road.
