he could have killed my children

We had our transmission replaced. Got it back and instantly noticed a long list of things he fucked up along the way. He wouldn't answer our calls. He was "never home" he quit going to work.. We drove it for a few days hoping he'd get back to us. While the things we noticed were worrisome we thought they were minor things. well we gave up waiting and took it to another mechanic Monday. Its taken THREE days to figure out everything the first mechanic fucked up. Not to fix it but to find all the problems related to the issues we had after the transmission was replaced.

the new mechanic called just now and said were lucky were even alive and that that was THE WORST hack job they have EVER seen. EVVVEEERR.

that bastard put my kids lives in danger. My life. My husbands life. There was no way in hell he didn't know he fucked up. There's absolutely no way. I'm fuming. I learned my lesson. Trying to save a buck by using a family friend who is a mechanic isn't worth it. Got it. I was upset I was going to have to pay another mechanic to re fix it. But again. Lesson learned. And now that I learn how serious was, I can't even see straight.

and now I get to wait another two days for everything to be fixed.

Yep I was stupid. Still doesn't take away the fact that a mechanic did that horrible of a job that we could have been killed. Idfara what I paid him. That doesn't mean he can put our lives in danger.

Is it possible for you to report him and/or get your money back?

I think I saw your post the other day about this, if that was you. I'm glad you are getting it figured out.

Probably. I posted about being charged by the hr just to look at it and find all the problems. I was freaking out after 5 hrs. Well it took them 3 days. He screwed ALOT of things up. /sigh
