Being ripped off

#1

Dear CArtalk,

I have had probably one of the worse experiences lately with a mechanic, and now I must go to court over it.

I am curious, since this discussion has come up in my research,how common would you say it is for an automotive inspector to take a payoff from an auto repair shop. I live in Ca. keep in mind…

You need to clarify this. what is an auto inspector?

Sorry about your woes. You own the absolute worst make of vehicle in terms of repairing it. I know three good local independent mechanics who have a sign up saying “No Land Rover Please”. They are nightmares of vehicles to maintain, repair, diagnose for both owner and mechanic.

How about providing some details as to why you feel you were ripped off and also explain what an automotive inspector is. I’m not familiar with that profession unless it’s a CA thing.

CA has no safety inspection…An emissions tester?? An insurance adjuster??

Who took what from whom and why??

Well, at least it apparently wasn’t one of your worst experiences–just one of the ones that was worse than some others.

That being said, you need to provide much more detail so that we have some idea of what type of problem you are talking about.
