If ur obsessed about your car it will suffer!

So I got my car back friday from the body shop..... I drive around notice the front end is still not aligned correctly, call the body shop, they tell me to take it back to the place that aligned it, so I did. Keep in mind now my wheels were messed up in the wreck and they are discontinued so they had to send them off to get them reclear-coated and finished. Well so I get to the shop to realign them, they fix it, kind of, guy calls me outside and says he has a small problem, the machine they had my wheel on droped it and messed it up again. I was like what? are you serious? So he offered to send it back off to have it fixed again ($200) and another 2 weeks. Ok So big deal right? Well Im drive around all night next day get up go outside notice I have a hold threw My cobra bumper and chin spoiler I was like What the h3ll. The body shop didnt put the fog light bulb back into the fog lamp so it burnt a hole through the bumper and chin spoiler HAHAHAHA!!!!!! <- A laugh of insanity!!!!!! Can you believe that ****!!! So they body shop is reordering the the parts to fix it. O but thats not all!!!! Now when I take a u turn or back out of a parking space I have this loud popping noise.... the wheel is hitting the sway arm....... and now the estimator has to come back to look at it. Along with my headers leaking what else is going to go wrong?? This car is breaking me mentally. Someone Please hand me a gas can and a lighter because Im really going insane.

That is not so bad wait till your car is on a lift 8 feet in the air with no motor,trans or any suspension and ford tells you it will be 5-7 days before they can get the only part holding you up from being done.

Re: If ur obsessed about your car it will suffer!

That's part of getting work done at cheap/backwood shops.

Number one reason I look at previous work and talk to previous customers before carrying my car anywhere. Not to mention, the car has only spent one overnight visit anywhere for any work and that was when a shop put a hole in my oil pan. I was there when the shop closed and watched them lock the doors and was there when they unlocked them in the morning.

If you had carried the car to a good shop in the beginning, none of this would be happening. I am so sick of mechanic and body shops ripping people off, almost makes me want to open my own and stand behind my work and not rip ppl off.

Re: If ur obsessed about your car it will suffer!

Sorry to hear bout it... Im happy I wasnt in a front end wreck, those seem to be harder to get fixed than the rear ending I received

Anyway, hope it gets back right real quick

Re: If ur obsessed about your car it will suffer!

oh lord, sounds like a serious bad omen/s to me! I feel ya though, when it rains it pours! I wouldn't put all the blame on the shop you took it to, even though it is their fault, there's a reason for everything, like you said, your next car will be stock, maybe that's the message!

Re: If ur obsessed about your car it will suffer!

I wanted pay it off and keep it and just buy another car.... But I dont kno with the way things are goings. I can sell it in a heart beat if I wanted to. People ask about it all the time its just whether I want to or not

Re: If ur obsessed about your car it will suffer!

just stick it out, it isnt worth it you know that car inside out, what if you get a new car and you get issues right off the back, you'll regret it even more.

you'll get the car back in its orginal state again just takes time
