default Shooting the Van & Buying a Horse!

Post by LargeWingSpan on Tue Mar 11, 2008 10:03 pm

Sorry I need to vent!!!

We have been without our van for almost two weeks!!!! Finally got it into the shop near our house last saturday, got it back today. Was suppose to be cool, HOWEVER

Jackie was on her way to get me tonight, and it started clunking and the brake pedal goes all the way to the floor before it catches. I made her turn around to go get the car.

WORSE news, the mechanic leaves town tomorrow for Puerto Rico for God knows how long!!!!!!!!!

IF I have to spend ANY $$ to fix his %$^&*# HE will get the bill!!!

IM GOING TO SMOKE!! SO SORRY TO MAKE YOU LISTEN TO MY RANTING,
Im so frustrated I dont know what to do anymore!

UPDATE

My wife was able to get ahold of the man as she was furrious and called not caring of the hour. lol!
Thats my girl.... anyway

After getting scolded from his wife LROF she was able to talk to him and he said to call him when we get back up there and he will look at it tonight, however after talking to my BIL chances are the parts are all screwed up now because when he got the new part it had metric fittings and the original had standard, he was unable to find the proper bolts so he 'tapped' them out and rethreaded them. Which apparently is a big no no.

We shall see....

And I ask the Divas that control the workings of your car to take over and FIX this thing... Make it work... and keep it running smooth.
Good luck................Robin

Last night when we got up there and finally met with the mechanic dude, I asked Jackie to stay in the car. She was justifiable upset and I could see the "Yankee" comin out in her last night.

He took off the wheel and then proceeded to push on the rotor assembly and the whole thing moved, which it is not suppose to. He tinkered with this and tinkered with that, the whole time Jackie was watching from the car and knowing that I am not one much for car repair, nor knowledge of much of it. So she called her brother in Wisconsin. He used to be our fix it dude when we all lived back home, he knows what he is doing.

I ended up talking to Paul and told him the deal, Paul said check this check that but by the sounds of it, he put on the wrong wheel hub or a bad one. I repeated this to our mechanic guy, who looked at me like I was crazy, Paul then tells me to put the joker on the phone. LMAO

Long story short, Paul was right, the Hub is either the wrong one, or a bad one. The mechanic said he is going good for it, and I told him, Damn right you are, You have already been paid for this to have been done right the first time. Any more time you put into this is on your dime buddy!

Now for the corkscrew of it all.... He left for Puerto Rico this morning and wont be back until Tuesday next week! So the van sits locked up in his shop (its safe, alarmed and all, hell wish someone would steal the dumb thing) until he gets back on Tuesday and I told him I will be hunting him down on Tuesday too, that this inconviencence is unacceptable and that if he wants to stay in business he needs to check his work and do it right instead of chasing the dollar, I didnt appreciate him putting MY family in possible danger and scaring the hell outta my wife! Since it was nearly 1am and my babies were sleeping in the car with Jackie I walked out.

It is completely undrivable, otherwise I would have brought it elsewhere and had him billed for it.

Good news though, my cousin is going up to N.C. this weekend so their truck wont be in use, they offered it to us to use until Tuesday. THANK GOD FOR FAMILY!

Thank You ALL!!

I watched a clip on the news this week about the bicycle shops are getting alot of business right now cause the gas prices are so high around here. Making everyone to believe that you buy a bike and ride it to where ever you want to do...come on reality check here! CAN YOU SEE SOMEONE RIDING A BIKE ON THESE ROAD WAYS...WHATEVER!!!!
