Due to poor job performance and very unprofecional work done by Anderson Automotive,I lost five days of work.
Refund my money I paid for the uncompleted repairs, and compensation for the time I lost not been able to work all this five days, wich is total of $ 1,000.00 dollars of work time.
Business' Initial Response
This customer never gave us the opportunitie to check his complaint over just a oil leak that he said was to bad to drive but he drove his trunk any way from buffalo to houston , and his truck did not run when it was towed in to anderson automotive. The other shop did other repair that where unnecessary to repair oil leak
Consumer's Final Response
(The consumer indicated he/she DID NOT accept the response from the business.)
defetly I give anderson automotive the oportunity and give them first choice to dicided on what they want to do about the problem, in stead the person in charge told me to take my truck to a aotomotive that had a lift to take pictures to see where the leak was coming from to dignostic what he need to do, when ********* automotive did what Aanderson aotomotive requested and send estimated cost they refused to paid, on their respond was for ********* Automotive to fix the problem with cilicone, is far as what repairs ********* did to my truck where what Anderson Automotive should done from the biginig, if you have any questions about what ********* did in repairs you can contact them directly.
