Additional Notes

Complaint Category: Improper or inferior repair

Complaint: I have taken my car into Adair Auto Repair twice to have a coolant leak repaired. The first time they replaced the thermostat and it was still leaking. A few weeks later I took it back and they replaced the water pump and said that was the only leak. I called to take it in for the third time and the owner would not return my phone calls. I than called and spoke to another employee there and he was very unprofessional. He hung up the phone on me. I will be taking the vehicle to another mechanic to fix it properly. I DO NOT LIKE TO PAY TO REPLACE PARTS WHEN THEY PROBLEM IS ELSEWHERE.

Initial Business Response
As the owner of Adair Auto Repair I am sad to hear of this complaint. We always try to make sure that every vehicle is repaired properly and repaired the first time. We offer an outstanding warranty on all parts and labor.
If there is a problem with the repairs we have done then the customer simply needs to call the shop and speak with whoever answers the phone. Book a time to have the vehicle looked at to see what the problem is.
I did not receive any message regarding this issue and did was unaware that **** wanted a call back from me.
I have spoken with my service writer who is my younger brother and he spoke with **** on the phone when he called. **** did not want to bring his vehicle in to have us look at it. We can not repair this problem or make it right for him is he is not willing to bring the vehicle in to us.
If there is a problem with the work we did then with will be covered under warranty.
I will be calling **** to speak with him directly to see if we can resolve the problem.
Thank you

Complaint Resolution: Company resolved the complaint issues. The consumer acknowledged acceptance to BBB.
