I brought my car 3 months ago to primeaux brothers to get fixed. The transmission was shot. Days went by and I never heard anything about my car. So I called to see how things were going with my car. The man told me that he couldnt work on it yet because he wasn't feeling too well. I said ok and let it go. Days went by again, still heard nothing. I called about my car and he said that he ordered a faulty transmission. Again another wait, I called him and asked when my car would be done and he said "definately maybe friday"..how can those two go in the same sentence? I got in touch with the owner and he told me that he told the man to not take the job in the first place because he didn't know how to fix it. Months went by and I still didn't get my car. Not to mention the man kept on tacking on charge after charge. I decided to buy me a new car. To this day I still did not get refunded like I was promised. We went there today and he was not there (like always). We agreed that I would get my money refunded and he would buy my car. I am ranting and I would not recommend this place to anyone.

he was supposed to open that place up on the by pass next to Gulf Coast Bank and do details inspections and sell used cars. That never did last but a few weeks.
Mark can sell ice to an eskimo. He proclaims to be so religious he cannot hear a curse word and he cannot work on a Saturday.
I used to go there but I have found Fleuriet and Cajun Pro to be a lot faster and a little more "down to earth."

He offered us the cheapest around and thats why we went over there. But eventually the price increased to just as much as the other places. I'm sure we would have our car by now if we would have went somewheres else. We heard nothing but good things about that place and after the fact everyone is telling us not to go there. Info a little late there guys. lol..oh well lesson learned.

I wouldn't go there again. I drive up in his big country parking lot. He jumps out his car and says in a rude manner. "park right there" Which was a spot 20 feet from where I was parked. Which made no sense. He was doing nothing, and the area was a hundred foot wide, and I was the only car in the lot. he's a nut. Weird, and his brother lives in a tree. Thats no joke

Now I know why he lives in the country. There is no way he could have a neighbor. On top of that, he did a repair for my friend. it broke a week later, and insisted he installed it correct.
Then he insisted payment in cash, and wouldn't even give a receipt.

Its out in the zats. South of Erath.
From Abbeville pass in front of parish jail headed east. Road dead ends. Take R. That road dead ends take a left. He is on the left. Beat up building. Owner Mark will sell you. He is a great salesman, but Cajun Pro is the best for mechanic work. Installed a new transmission in two days and it took the part a day to get in.

yea, he only gave us a 30 day warranty for the "new" transmission. He had the car for the whole entire warranty (he had the car for months)..well we got a new car out of it..just wish he could have just fixed it. We showed up there the other day to see about getting our refund and he flat out said "you have the title to your car?" in a rude manner. Excuse you, show me the money and I'll give you the title. I wish we were finished with that guy, but can't get in touch with him.
makes no sense

law is he does not have the right to keep your car,hes not a salvage yard.so his scam is to hide out for so many days so he can file for salvage title so he can sale your car!call the law ASAP!!!

well, we went yesterday, the main owner was there, but he didn't want anything to do with it since it wasn't his project. At least everyone in the shop knows that we are looking for him. I might pass again today and see if he is there.
Thats just crazy

You say you keep going and he's never there and nobody else there wants anything to do with the problem. Go with the sheriff dept and get your property or seek legal action against the business. Guaranteed results imediately, and not months of trouble and headaches as you have said.

Was the blue z71 there for a transmission? That might explain your situation.
