Avoid this shop like the plague. My transmission went out the day I picked my car up from the shop after having it replaced! Look up Academy Automotive & Ace High... One bad company to the next is what it looks like to me! I wish I would have taken my money and gone elsewhere.

WOMEN BEWARE!!!!!!!!!! We as women should always let eachother know when a predator is out to screw us over. This man is a liar and cheat. DO NOT HAVE YOUR CAR FIXED BY THIS COMPANY. You will be charged for things that one, was not needed and two, the worked was not done. Ladies I was charged for work that was not needed and the parts were not replaced. Highway robbery by Rob Lane. Check out how many different companies this man has owned. This should tell you something. Went it gets hot he just moves to another location (usually puts the company in a women's name ) and changes his company name and starts over looking for fresh prey.

You are all right... The owner is a liar. Rumor has it .. His son was in a car accident and almost died.. He won't even help him with the costs. Stear clear. He will take your money for boats, and various toys. The owner Robert Lane is not trust worthy. Ask how much he pays the help. Pennies on the dollar. He can't take of your vehicle if he can't take care of his own child. Go else where.

I have seen many shops over the years, Destroyer is the worst shop I have ever seen. If the condition of the shop reflects the work, run away. The shop is unorganized and filthy. No quality work could be done there. Robert Lane will not stand behind his shop's work. Worst Repair Shop Ever!

DO NOT use Destroyer Automotive.
My experience was this- Needed an engine in my car. Robert quoted me $1895 to rebuild my engine and said it would be 4-6 days. After 6 days I called every few days for updates and was told " tomorrow, maybe today". I was told that many times. Robert was pleasant enough, but couldn't estimate time to save his life. After 3 weeks, the job was done, but the bill was $3500 because the old engine block was cracked. The new engine ran fine, but had no heat on the ride home. The heater hoses were hooked up wrong. 2 vacuum hoses weren't hooked up, a couple wires were dangling, not plugged in. The rear driveshaft was attached incorrectly (U joints not lined up) A couple weeks later oil was leaking from 3 places. Brought it back for oil leak repair and was told a few days to repair. 2 1/2 weeks later he said it was repaired. Now, a month later it's leaking oil again from the same place. They do sloppy work and pay no attention to details.

Destroyer installed an engine into my '91 Toyota 4Runner. There was problem after problem with their work and the engine itself. The manager Robert Lane constantly lied.(Think-COMPULSIVE LIAR)

After 1575 miles, the engine went bad and Robert would not honor the warranty . I filed a complaint with BAR (Bureau of Automotive Repair) and the BAR rep sited Destroyer for charging $ for work not done, and for invoice violations, which showed that the engine installed was used, not remanufactured.

I sued Destroyer in small claims court, and won the case.

I can't stress this enough- DO NOT GO TO DESTROYER AUTOMOTIVE!!!

I sent my car to destroyer automotive to get the engine fix. I pick it up a week later by the next day it started leaking oil. He told us he would tow it to them for almost 300 and he was not sure it warranty covered it. Do not recommend. Avoid.

This place sucks. I pity Rob, he has done so many people wrong. just looking at him I see so much deception, hatred, low self esteem, and cowardness in his eyes. Dude and his so say wife are pitiful and disgusting. 0 out of 5 ratings. I wonder what happen to the boats and other toys??? All I see is an miserable nervous con artist watching his business unfold. I wish you well, Rob!!!! Hopefully I can give you a ride in my automobile that somebody else fixed, so you can know how honest work feels like. Nah.... I just pity the fool...."everyone is laughing at you"!!!

Rob is a low down criminal. I didn't even know that that evil cheating people like this exist. How can he even live with himself, knowing the low down things he has done? He didn't fix my car correctly and wouldn't honor the warranty. I agree with all of the above comments. Calling him and his business and owner scum is giving them a complement. They are low down dirty dogs!!!!! Do not go to Destroyer Automotive!!!! It is a nasty dirty low down swamp with evil vicious people that do not have your better interest at heart. STAY AWAY !!!!!!
