Additional Notes

Complaint: On 04/07/2015 , my 1998 VW Golf was hit by someone in a parking lot. It was the other party's fault, so they offered to fix my vehicle "without insurance claim". The other car driver's mother asked me to get repair estimate. On the same day the 7th, I went to HI-TECH Collison to get the repair estimate. I met with ******* ********** who examined the vehicle and gave me repair estimate of $674.65. the other party agreed to pay for that , again, without insurance claim.I dropped my car on Monday the 04/13 , two days later , *** called me to inform that the front fender they ordered , would not fit, and they they were trying to "stretch it" so my car won't finish on time, "*** had told me would be matter of two days". on Friday morning, the 04/17 I went to check my car in the shop, I saw the fender uninstalled , *** and another worker there talked with me, and said this afternoon we will be done with your car. After noon they called and said my car is done and ready to be picked up. My wife picked the car at around 5:30PM. Once she got home, I instantly check on the car, for my surprise , the funder is not installed correctly and there is gap between the funder and the grill, about 3/4 of an inch. Called ********* the next day, he claimed that there was no original fender cover , so they had to buy after market one, and they don't fit 100%. I said IReally wanted my car to be back like it was, but he insisted that there was nothing they can do.

Desired Settlement: I need the funder fit onto the car 100%. My car should be fixed correctly. That way is my car now is unacceptable.
