Run and run fast. You better of dealing with a shade tree mechanic.
I brought my vehicle in to have a dianostics test, codes were found and recommeded repairs were performed by business, but same problem still exist. To whom it may concern, On or about 03/08/2013, I took my 2002 Chevy Silverado to DRIVER'S EDGE to get an estimate on having an oil leak repaired, squeaking under the truck and an ABS/Brake lights popping on. After about fifteen minutes in the service bay a technician called me outside to discuss the issues that he found with my vehicle. He stated that the oil leak was coming from between the motor and transmission and was probably a seal, but that the diagnostic revealed other engines problems. At the time truck ran fine, but after considering it had over 200,000 miles I asked him to give me a quote on fixing the other problems as well. He then began discussing the issue with my ABS/Brake lights popping on. He stated he had the code and the problem was caused by a bad wheel assembly hub. At that point I asked him to give a quote to have all of the work performed. Although I never experienced a braking problem, the lights popping on was annoying so wanted to have it fixed. He quoted me the price for a top engine rebuild and wheel hub assembly to be replaced and stated that this would resolve the issues. He wrote up an estimate and I agreed for them to complete the work. On 03/15/2013 I went to pick up the truck, I drove it one block and the ABS/brake lights popped on. I made a U-turn came back to the shop to show them that the lights were back on. They pulled it back into the bay for a few minutes did something and brought it back to me stating that I needed to drive it a while and it would go out. After getting it home it went out and stayed out for almost two days, but popped back on. I called the shop and was told to bring it back. On 03/26/2013 I took it back and they keep it overnight. I was later called once again and told we have you ready, the lights are out. I picked up the truck, drove for about a couple of days and the lights popped back on. I again called the shop and told them that I would be back. On 04/05/2013 I went back to the shop and informed Danny that the lights popped back on and that was also hearing a clicking noise coming from the engine upon a cold start. He stated we'll take a look at it. We don't want to mess up that new engine. They took the truck to the service bay, cleaned the grounds for the ABS/Brake system, checked the fluids and stated it's not losing any fluids. This did not resolve either issue. The lights came back on and nor did he explain the clicking noise. At point he stated that would keep the ticket open, but could not duplicate the problem. When the lights popped back on Danny stated that the problem was now caused by a bad control module. He stated it's like a flow chart we start with this first and if that don't resolve the problem we move to the next thing. I replied that what shade tree mechanics do. I thought I was coming to a reputable shop. I stated, I don't know what's bad, but when I brought it in to have it checked I described the problem, your technician arn a dianostic and said the cause of my problem was a bad wheel assembly hub. He then stated he would try to locate a brake module and give me call later. After not receiving a call, I called him the next evening to see what was going on, he suggested that he could have my brake control module rebuilt for $750 at my expense. By this time, we had a breakdown in communication and Danny said that he had spoke to his operations manager earlier and that I should be receiving a call. Later that evening I received a call from John (Director of Operations), only to be insulted once more by asking what do I think is fair. I replied anything short me having the problems resolved that I described when I brought my truck in for repairs would be totally unacceptable.
