I'm not telling the guy not to pay, just give him a hard time about getting the money like he did about getting his car back.

ughh i might be wrong.. i just checked google... looks like they can hold on to the car untill full payment..

Damn it.. sorry dude

1. will not happen if storage fees are not paid - even insurance runs into trouble with that one
2. you need to pay for the service provided before taking the car back - same rule is used by large dealerships. partial payment needs to be pre-arranged and can be a subject to extra charges
3. very easy to do - more trouble for the owner if shop never releases the lien - hard to sell the car
4. some collection agencies work on a commission fee and will get it done fast - more trouble for the owner - e.g. phonecalls at the workplace etc



it makes more sense to come to some sort of an agreement and pay let's say 75% rather than start fighting losing wars.

You may be able to re-coup some of your insurance premium.

Call you broker and explain the situation. Some companies will apply a temporary suspension of road coverages. OPCF 16 - suspend road coverages, OPCF 17 - reinstate coverages. A refund is applied to the policy once the coverage is reinstated, not 100% of the premium for that duration but a portion of it.

You could also ask to remove all coverage but comprehensive or specified perils. But that leaves you a bit more exposed and technically you could be subject to new rates when re-adding the car.

You cant threaten and f around with a shop owner when your car is in his shop.
He'll fix your problem and create another. If you really pissed him off, he can really mess up your car.

Just grin and bear it and dont go back. Eh before leaving see if you can steal some of his tools to get even. j/k of course

Is it me or did the guy tell you he needs at least thirteen days?
If you overinsisted he does it then you should know you were taking a risk.
Saying that he has taken too long but before you do anything i would go and talk to him.
Remember some of the delays were not up to him (waitting for part etc).
In any case hope this ends for you soon! Good luck!

No - I towed the car there without any word from the shop saying that they can't look at it right away.

I waited and waited for an answer about what they diagnosed... and it took 13 days to pass.

No where was I told I would wait that long.


Anyways I got the car back he was fair with the pricing (but because my mechanic is across the street and he told him about me)...

The car at least runs but now has that one check engine light still 104 - so at times during idle it studders / drops RPM.
