Short story - horrible mechanical services.

Car is 80s Volvo 240, fairly easy to work on rather than any modern car, Google it.
Prior the repairs: Car has leaks from Engine (drain plug, rear main seal), Transmission (rear seal, transmission pan gasket, etc).
* Shop timeline
1) In the shop: 03/22/2017 - 03/31/2017
Car has small residue of oil underneath and making a grinding sound in 2 gear of transmission. Later, the car purged a lot of oil while was driving and in the community where was parked over night. The reason is that the shop overfilled the ATF in transmission by about 1.5 quart. Thus, possibly there is damage to the transmission. The oil was spilled in the engine compartment and the engine oil pressure sensor connector was broken. The owner fixed the connector. Transmission was painted in blue color without notifying the me.
2) In the shop: 04/03/2017 - 04/04/2017
The car is still leaking ATF around transmission. The transmission fluid is overfilled again. Determined that the car need to be driven 15-20 minutes on the freeway in order to show that.
3) In the shop: 04/11/2017 - 04/14/2017
The car is still leaking ATF around transmission.
4) In the shop: 04/19/2017 - 04/19/2017
The car is still leaking ATF around transmission.
5) In the shop: 04/25/2017 - 04/25/2017
The car is still leaking ATF around transmission. Also, the rear of the car started making grinding noise.
6) In the shop: 04/28/2017 - 04/28/2017
The car seems to stop leaking until 06/10/2017, where I discover it started to leak again around rear of transmission.
* Overall Damage:
1) Overfill of the transmission by a lot
2) Broken engine oil pressure sensor connector - it was fixed by me.
3) Purged transmission oil caused all the back of station wagon to be in oil - washed, I paid.
4) Poorly painted transmission - not only the shop did not get any permission from the me to paint the transmission, but because it was non-professionally painted
5) Broken engine mount bracket bolt - fixed by me

First class service, they know what they are doing. Charge fairly and fix things the first time. I have already had friends and family come in and they tell me they have had the same experience.
