just go in there and bitch at them. threaten to take your car to another shop... they usually kick it into gear after that.

What's the history of the shop? good reputation? some places can get backed-up. other shops are quick to give you a quote & time of completion but really dont have a clue what they'll be doing, and will probably take longer than said especially if they have to the order parts.

I would check on the car everyday, like store-visit them or even just phone calls. if you stop in to get news, ask to have a look at the progress. if they wont let you or give you excuses, then its fishy.

Tell them they're in breach of contract and you're ready to call the police. Also, make sure you check the mileage and everything else on the car before you take it back.

nope. Dont get me wrong they do good work, as shown by their shop cars, but they dont have enough people to do it all. Their shop is really small compared to some of the others that i've been to. Plus they have to spend time on thier shop cars.

ya'll are so funny I'm not going to dignify this thread with too much of a response. I'm just going to say that I talked to Josh today and he apologized.

Thanks for the props guys. It was nice to hear from ya!

Does this look like a man to you??? I'm the one on the left. Later
