Hi there fellas…
I left my car on a shop for an engine replacement on 4/28/16. I made a call a week later to check on the progress of the repairs. He said he would start working on the car starting on Saturday and that it will be ready in a couple of days.
I made a call again on 5/11/16 to check again and this time he says that he has already started working on the car but says he needs a couple more days to finish and that it will be ready on Saturday. Well, he calls my wife today to let her know that he can’t have the car fixed for the day he promised, and that we shouldn’t worry because he can deliver the car to our house (I am leaving to NY in a couple of days).
Now, here is the thing… Yes, we feel it has been taking too long but at the same time I don’t want my mechanic to do a crappy job on my car, because I understand that my car is not the only vehicle he has to fix on the shop. His shop is also pretty small… My wife though is ticked off because she needs the car ASAP, as she works for an insurance company and is mandatory to have a vehicle.
I thought it was a good idea to come here and ask ya’ll for opinions since I am going to the shop tomorrow. Do you guys think I should be patient and keep waiting or should I tow the car out of the shop and have the repairs completed somewhere else? I already paid for the engine and the “extra parts”.
