My 18 year old son had his car towed, a 2000 Mitsubishi Galant ES, to this repair shop on 04/10/10. They told him his timing belt and another type of belt had to be replaced and would cost $837. My son gave them $510 and got a receipt and a quote stating that they would keep the car on their lot and not charge him storage fees while he gets the remaining balance, which would be in about 2-3 weeks. Well my son was able to get the balance in 9 days and was able to pay them the balance on 4/19/10, which he notified th They told him to pick his car up the next day on 4/20. He paid the balance and drove it home. I got home from work that evening and his car sounded like a piece of junk! They told him that there was damage to his engine and that he would have to get the heads done! HUH??? My husband who also works on cars, asked them did they make sure that the #1 piston was in the straight up position. They said "uh, well with the newer cars, you don't have to do that, it's all computerized". Now, he is not getting any compression in his 1st cylinder and they're saying he needs to take it somewhere else and get a head job!! WHAT?? The guy also told my husband that they had to do the repairs twice, meaning THEY KNEW THE CAR WAS NOT REPAIRED WHEN THEY TOOK HIS MONEY!! He called the Park Forest Police Department but of course they said this is a civil matter. DO NOT GO TO THIS SHOP. THEY ARE RIPOFFS!! WE WILL BE CONTACTING THE COOK COUNTY STATES ATTORNEY AND THE WILL COUNTY STATES ATTORNEY'S OFFICES ABOUT THIS MATTER. THEY TOOK ADVANTAGE OF HIS EAGERNESS TO HAVE HIS CAR BACK RUNNING!
