Chets Auto in Long Beach-Owner David-Horrible

I truly wish I would have know and read the reviews on this website first before I ever dealt with David from Chets. Long story short, I brought my car from there and had nothing but problems with the car. The last straw was when my engine broke down (even though I maintain the oils and fluids). I took it back to Chets to repair and after finding out the final cost, I decided not to do any work to the car. David then tried to sale me a 2002 Hyundai with over 200,000 miles for $8,000!!!. When I found this out, I took my business to someone else. Well, I guess that David was not too happy about this because once he found out, he placed a lien on my car for what he said were fees for work done to my car. Ummm, excuse me, no work was done. He would not let me pick up my car and until payment was received. After going back and forward with him, it was finally decided that he would release my car for a certain amount. (We negotiated the price down from over $900 to a little over $100. This was for the diagnostic fee and what he says is the lien application) My guess was that he knew he was wrong in charging me illegal fees and placing an invalid lien on my car. Well, today, I take the money to him and once I paid him, he told me that he was not going to release the car, proceed to call me a black ***, stuck out his tongue at me and threaten me, all with witness around. I believe he was trying to intimidate me, however, I did not budge. After he realized that I was not leaving without my car he told me that I could take my car and wanted me, a girl, to push the car out of his lot, even though he had a hand full of men that could have assists me. Thank God that his workers are not as vengeful as he is, for they helped me push my car out of his lot. Although, per David instructions, they left it in an area in the street that was a tow away zone. Luckily, I had a tow truck driver meet me there and he was able to tow to car away to a different location so that I can finally sale the car to someone elses. Please believe me, do not go to Chets Auto. Stay away. David is a sexist, racist, unprofessional human being. I mean, really, I am still the customer. How is he going to yell at me, stick out his tongue at me, call me a ***, dumb, black *** with other customers looking on in shock. I am in fear for my life because of David. Please, if I can save anyone who reads this, please believe me. Go anywhere but here. If I end up harmed in any way, I want everyone to know who is behind it.
