Yes, well, I'm not suggesting that the bad mechanic be put in jail. I just want to warn others not to patronize his shop. We assumed that his $100 overcharge was an honest mistake until we discovered that he had lied to us outright--telling us he checked the problem, twice--when in fact he couldn't have, or he would have discovered the broken caliper and leaking brake fluid. We then had to wonder whether the $100 overcharge was deliberate. But the point is that he didn't fix the problem in the first place, charged my friend $2,800, sent her off with a broken and dangerous vehicle, and then failed twice to fix, or even CHECK, the problem when we brought the Jeep back to him. Her car was in an accident and had a broken front axle: she took it to the nearest mechanic, Brighton Auto Clinic on Washington Street on the Brookline/Brighton line, where Ronaldo charged her $2,800 to fix it but did not in fact fix the broken caliper, which caused brake fluid to leak into the brake pads. When she took the car back and asked why the front driver's-side wheel kept getting coated with black oil, he told her (a) it was from "the elements," (b) it must have been splashed onto the hubcap from a passing vehicle (even though it was only the front wheel, not both left-side wheels), and similar non-answers. The second time she took the car back to him, a couple of months after he did the work, he told her again that he'd taken the wheel off and checked everything out and found nothing wrong. The car was parked in the exact same spot where she'd left it--and when we then took it to my mechanic across town, who immediately found and fixed the broken caliper, we concluded that the bad mechanic hadn't even bothered to move her car, let alone actually look at it. This is the kind of dishonest, unscrupulous mechanic that we would like to warn others about, especially in a case like this, where the broken caliper and leaked fluid could have caused her to have a serious accident.
