My good friend just got some transmission work done on his car.. and I'm afraid he got taken to the bank by the repair shop big time. He's not car repair savy, and he just authorized the shop to do the tranny work on his 2000 Dodge Neon.
The bill came to just under 2K.
I feel sorry for him.. but is there anything he can do? I told him i'd go with him back to the repair shop and try to get some $$ back for him. but I highly doubt they'll just going to roll over and refund him part of his money back. He had the work done last week and didn't ask for the old parts from his tranny. So I believe the shop just replaced some parts that never needed to be replaced and charged this nice guy 2K for it.
So I'll go talk to the manager with him this week.. but any ideas how I might be able to help him out and get some $$ back if that's even possible.
He knows he effed up by authorizing the work to be done.. he feels bad about that. so let me know if you all have any ideas. I want to help him out.. this was most of his Christmas money that he had to use for that repairs.
