A&A RADIATOR SERVICE-- CROOK IN PRETENDING TO BE A MECHANIC

I asked for my radiator to be fixed. He quoted 320 on the phone then when the repairs were done he told me it will be 456. After I complained he said he would do me the favor of dropping the price to 436.48. When all I had was 385, he said come pay me the rest when you get paid. I got the car and drove it less than an mile when the radiator overheated and a hose bust on the freeway. I paid to have it towed to his place again. He told me oh it may have air in the radiator. he does not call me for a week then when i go in there he says it is a blown head gasket when i could clearly see the radiator hose blew off. Sloppy, inaccurate work and he had nerve enough to deny blame and say he told me it had air. he ordered me off his property and threatened to have the 98 jeep towed. 40 minutes later when i come back with a tow truck to tow the Jeep he has already called a wrecker who wants more money just to turn the car over to me. He refuses to fix the radiator or the damage caused to the engine. No written estimate, price changes, denial of shoddy work and failure to communicate and give adequate time to get the vehicle off the property. AVOID THIS GUY LIKE THE PLAGUE!! WE NEED A LAW TO MAKE HIM AND OTHER MECHANIC CROOKS ACCOUNTABLE!!

Charged me huge sum and didnt repair my car

Update by user Dec 09, 2011

aa radiator charged me 355 dollars to get my car back, towed away and peices in a card board box. it cost me an additional 2500.00 to have the repairs done by a REAL mechanic who knew what he was doing. 2000.00 of this was damage done to the car by aa radiator

aa radiator in beaumont texas kept my car for an entire month and charged me full repair price but did not repair my car. my car had to be towed from his shop and we had to get the police envolved even to do this. for an entire month I got lie after lie and promise after promise which he never kep. he also left my car in an area were it got overspray on it with the windows down. in addition he did furthur damage to the car which I believe to be deliberte. what he did was tantamont to vandalism
