REDROCK PRECISION MOTORS located in West Sedona, is an auto shop that specializes in high end vehicle work such as Mercedes, Lexus, BMW, etc. Being a mechanic myself, I have been aware of several unethical practices at this shop, and have decided to share and warn the community about it. I'm not sure if Karl Scheinuck is or is not aware of the actions of his son Brandon or his mechanics, I leave that for your judgement. However, I can tell you that behind the scenes they do brag about how they have cheated customers and overcharged for services that are or sometimes not rendered. For older customers, taking advantage and charging them for outrageous and un-needed work is common. Brandon, who now runs the front office is notorious for overcharging customers, in order to keep their profit margin working. Not only that but they have their mechanics take part in these practices. They boast to customers to not waste their time driving to dealerships in the Valley because they will be ripped off. However, REDROCK PRECISION MOTORS has been doing it for years! Please avoid bringing your vehicle to this shop, avoid all their phoney smiles and small-talk they greet you with! They rip off customers off on a daily basis! What sicked me was how Brandon jokes about certain customers behind their back, and if he's having a bad day, watch your bill, cause he WILL over charge you out of spite! Someone needs to investigate the practices of this business. I'm sure I'm not the only insider in the area who knows what goes on in the back room at REDROCK PRECISION MOTORS. Beware!!!

I am soooo glad you posted this. We had a negative incident with them about 2 years ago. I think his mom was in the front office at that time. We felt they ripped us off but could never prove it...she was very rude when we questioned them. As a customer I had that privilege but they just shooed me out the door and took my money. We wound up getting rid of that car later...what a waste of money! Thank you for coming out about all of this.....

Red rock ripped me off and I will never go back, after charging me for a mistake they made on a faulty part. They don't care about customers, just making money.

I don't know if it's the same two guys, but I took my 450 SL in many years ago and after spending $800.00 - it left the shop running worst than when I brought it in. They did the work so I had to pay them but afterwards I had it serviced my a German mechanic (Martin?) who used to reside on Shelby Drive then at the space next door to the new Tortas De Fuego. He made the car hum for under $50.00. I found the two guys at Red Rock Precision very nice but incompetent in simply tuning up a German car.

Ward, you are correct, they are the same folks. Funny you mention that, since Karl brags that his shop specializes in servicing German vehicles. Also funny, like I said above, they act very friendly, then after you get gauged by their price, they do hurry you out the door. I'm very glad to see people in our community coming out with this information. Hopefully it will shed a light on their unethical business practices!

Do NOT take your vehicle to this place! They are pretty well known as rip-offs to the locals! They specialize in overcharging and fixing things that are not broke. How these people stay in business is a mystery!

Brandon flat out ripped me off! Beware of this kid! His dad is great but has no idea the unethical practices his son does in the front office. Not only did he rip me off, over charged me, and then told me to find a cab until my car would be done the following week. For a battery change...Really?
