Does excellent work but but don't expect to get your car back in a hurry. My car went there for a simple dent fix and repaint, and month later it's still not done. And now jr will not return my calls or open the door when I know that he's there. Talked to many customers of his and it's the same story for all of them.

Jr is a fraud, he owes me money and wont pay. He is a huge con artist, run the other way from this guy.

I was enthusiastically referred to this guy, gave him $ up front, went to see the car several times only to find it had been "stored" in a near by barn on a farm, and was asked for more $ after the work had finally started. During the 3 years he had the car, I heard the most amazing stories as to why the car was not done. It was like being on LA Improv, or Sat. Night Live. I resorted to speaking with JR only through a 3rd person as I watched from across the parking lot. When the car was finally declared finished it would not start and had a flat tire, so it had to be flat bedded to my house. They came in the dark at the end of the day, so I didn't see the damaged front bumper until the next day. It was bent and torn off the fiberglass body mounts. The paint that I just paid for has to be redone up in the front. I have reported him to the BBB, and the BAR regarding my experience, and the last I heard they don't even have a license to run a business for $ in Cal. Never Ever get involved with this guy.

I had my car done with JR and had no problems what so ever> He is honest and truthful about what I would expect. If you ask for a deal price or wanna pay a cheap price, that is what you get.... so dont expect to get a deal if youn expect high quality work>>> And im sure 90% of you guys that got complaints are the cheap ass that wanted shit done for cheap! so stop complaining!!! the man has a family and business to run..

I didn't want to embarrass my friend any more than he already was by referring me to this guy. He was let down by his friend, and ashamed of what was taking place. Unlike you. The car is a classic, and needed a complete sand down, sealer, and new paint. I was not driving it at the time and kept the cover on it. Did you miss the part where I paid cash, and got a car back that had more damage than when I dropped it off?

Did you miss the part about having completion dates set over and over while he lied repeatedly to my face and knew it all along? I would never have gotten my $ back because this guy is unethical, a fraud, deceitful, dishonest, and worst of all he knows it. He must have a staff of writers who come up with the outrageous stories, explanations, and excuses attempted by this guy as a means justification for his incompetence. A very sad way to express ones inadequacy.

Biggest liar/.....hole you will ever meet, never finishes anything and lies to you face, don't waste your time with this piece of s....t, I don't know how he is still in business,hands down the worst business man and ever worse ethics, I have ever seen. he needs to be shut down yesterday. The only shop where you have to work on your own car to get it back, I'm sure his insurance company would like that.

wooow!! thats alot!!! but i honestly think he does good work just overly piled with more then he can handle. hes a good person in general but when it comes to your car, i guess ull have to be on top of him.. cant blame a guy trying to make an honest living but i guess he has several bad run ins with certain customers. i myself, have no complaints but i understand where some of you are coming from.

I cant really tell if JR is a crook or just a horrible business man (I use the term loosely). He's a great talker, but can only seem to tell you what he thinks you want to hear and actually isnt capable of telling the truth. I gave him numerous opportunities - and told him outright - to just tell me the truth. HOW LONG BEFORE ITS DONE? No less than 10 times I heard "tomorrow." NEVER anything else. Its been several weeks and it sits parked out in the lot, never touched. He also cashed a large check. Legal actions are being initiated so I wont elaborate any further on that, but everyone should know they should never bring their car to this guy.

Another bust by JR. Just keep them coming. We have got to put this guy away. The city of Camarillo Chamber of Commerce has got to hear from us over and over until they tell him to leave the area. It makes them look bad. According to the Bureau of Automotive Repair he has NO license to even operate a business or repair automobiles in exchange for money. Keep the pressure on. Nothappy-GO GO GO!! Lawyer Lawyer Lawyer!!! Yes Yes Yes!!!

hello everyone!!!! ive read everyones comment and i totally understand why anyone would be upset.. i some what know him personally and i know for a fact that he went through a really ruff 2years with personal issues. At this point I think his slacking off is starting to wear off. Hes a young guy that started no knowledge in business but he is great at what he does. His fall out is that he cant control the volume and timing of completing a car but yet im sure hes learning. I understand him cuz i am also a machanic somewhat in his shoes but just 5yrs pass his years.. sometimes people fall and eventually they get themselves back up. but i do believe honesty is the best option and he needs to learn to tell customers the truth insetead of giving them a run around.. i understand he doesnt want to disappoint the customers but a lie is worst. He a great guy personaly but his business ethnics needs to improve and it has!! ive seen and heard.. glad someone has advised him!!

I hope you're not blinded by your good sense of faith, or fooled by your friendship. We'll know how much things have improved when the next guy writes up his reaction to Juan.
