Crazy Lee Posted April 13, 2016 Share Posted April 13, 2016 Years and years ago... (around 2008 or so), I took my car to a mechanic who was a terrible person. He acted like a used car salesman, was way too laid back, ignored me at times when I tried to ask questions, and let go of his better mechanics under him for the strangest reasons (One of his very good mechanics, one of those "I've done this my whole life" types, was fired under mysterious circumstances). I went to him a few times but gave up after realizing what a crook he was. The last straw was when he refused to honor his warranties that were ON PAPER. For instance, I once bought tires from him. One developed a sidewall bulge after a short bit. He refused to replace the tire claiming it was due to misalignment, and I didn't get my car aligned when I purchased the tire, so the warranty was void. First off, sidewall bulge is not caused by misalignment, it's caused by damaged sidewall belts, either due to manufacturing defect or an impact on the tire sidewall. Second of all, he didn't have an alignment rack, so how was I supposed to get an alignment? I could have actually taken him to court and won, if he didn't honor his warranties. In any case I watched him move his business twice, and then disappear. So, why am I bringing up something from nearly 10 years ago? Because the fucker is in the news again, having moved a few cities over, and is being an even bigger dickwad.http://www.fox2detroit.com/news/local-news/85864595-story A story from earlier this year where he called someone a faggot, and then trolled the news media. And then, more recently: http://www.rawstory.com/2016/04/michigan-mechanic-refuses-to-serve-fcking-monkeys-from-the-ghetto-but-insists-hes-not-racist/https://www.yahoo.com/news/michigan-tire-shop-owner-says-165800082.html I was thinking "This can't be the same guy, can it?" BUT OF COURSE IT IS! After watching the Fox2 video above, it was the same mother fucking asshole, now in a new location. Look at all the reviews on Yelp: http://www.yelp.com/biz/whitneys-tire-and-auto-repair-ann-arbor-4 I have a feeling this guy is a scam artist. Not an actual mechanic, because when I did business with him, I never EVER saw him pick up a wrench. But the fact he took people's money and run, has changed locations and business names multiple times, and has even gone under different names, makes me believe he's a con artist of the worst kind. I want to get back at this guy and I'm wondering how I can do it. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
